Working at Benninger

You can feel it´s Benninger

We have a wide range of different workplaces in our technical and commercial divisions. Small teams, a good working atmosphere, flat hierarchies and, as a result, opportunities to help shape work and decision-making processes are also key characteristics of our corporate philosophy.

We want our employees to be happy and healthy!

We are sure that a good work-life balance has a direct impact on the happiness and success of our employees. For this reason, as the Benninger Group we make sure that our employees have the opportunity to maintain this balance. Our site in Zell was awarded the title of "Family-Friendly Company” for its systematic family-friendly employment policies by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and the State Family Council of Baden-Württemberg.


Depending on the respective site, you benefit from numerous advantages for a better work-life balance, such as modern and flexible working time models, home office and sabbatical options, excellent holiday regulations, benefits that exceed mandatory requirements in the event of illness as well as attractive and flexible arrangements for returning to work after a break. In addition, Benninger offers family-oriented working and general conditions, various health promotion facilities and many other benefits.

What else do we do?

We conduct systematic staff appraisals in which we reflect together with our employees on past achievements and discuss and define their career goals. We make use of individual further education and training opportunities. We organize employee parties that promote "togetherness", such as summer parties, year-end celebrations as well as additional smaller-scale employee events.

Training and Studying

We ensure that we have a qualified up-and-coming generation in our own ranks by training young people. At Benninger you can sign up for an apprenticeship in a field that suits you and also complete a dual course of study (in cooperation with a university of cooperative education). There is a very wide range of vocational and study courses in both technical and commercial fields. Training is always geared to practical concerns, i.e. our trainees/students are integrated into the work processes of our department teams right from the start and always make an active contribution. As a result they learn independence and a sense of responsibility at an early stage. Experienced trainers and employees are at their side to provide support and assistance.
