Strong prospects for strong new employees
Individual support and care for our employees hold a very high place in the K+S Group, because they are in line with our future-oriented corporate and human resources policy. We want to increase the long-term retention of our employees and shape our future together with them. We therefore invest in their advanced education and in talent management.
The personal further development of our employees through acquiring new skills and abilities is absolutely essential for K+S’ success. That is why we undertake to support each employee’s personal success – from career advancement to ongoing advanced education. The K+S Group offers you the tools you need and a diversity of opportunities for advanced education
The aim of our talent management is to identify employee potential within K+S at an early stage, support the employees concerned and assist them with development prospects. At the same time it has been possible to secure long-term succession planning, meaning that adequately qualified employees are available every time a position becomes vacant.
Annual & staff appraisals
In annual or employee appraisals, supervisors and employees jointly determine a possible need for further training. In addition to training measures prescribed by law, K+S also offers specialist and comprehensive training, IT and language training as well as special seminar series for managers. In order to master the challenges associated with internationalisation, we are expanding the teaching of intercultural skills.
Bachelors or masters degree programs
Employees from the mining, chemical industry, electrical engineering, geology, mechanical engineering, and environmental engineering areas have the opportunity, under our “K+S StudiumPlus” (study plus) scholarship program, to compete for needs- and faculty-based bachelors or masters degree studies which are sponsored by K+S throughout the period of study. During the studies, you will remain employed by K+S and be assisted by committed K+S mentors acting as a link between students, company, and university. After successful graduation, you can then fully rejoin K+S.

In Germany, qualified employees from the technical and mining departments are given the opportunity for further training at the Technical College for Economy and Technology in Clausthal-Zellerfeld (“Fachschule für Wirtschaft und Technik”) in order to earn a technician’s degree.
