OKS as an employer

As a future-oriented, modern company, we invest in our employees as well as in new technologies. We offer an interesting and secure job with the opportunity to develop and grow professionally. Direct communication channels, personal responsibility and strong ties to the company have a very high value for us. Take the chance to grow together with us.

Corporate culture

Our employees live customer orientation and actively promote the targeted further development of our installed management system by acting on their own responsibility. We create a high level of identification of our employees with the company through close involvement in decision-making processes and targeted transfer of responsibility. In this positive corporate culture, employees create precious value contributions for our company. We live flat hierarchies and have short decision-making paths. This ensures a high degree of flexibility and adaptability as a central element of the successful mid tier. An important guiding principle of our management philosophy is that we are always reliable, predictable and loyal to our employees.


We attach great importance to supporting and promoting the development of our employees. Through individual training and further education, we give our employees the opportunity to develop professionally and personally, making OKS even stronger. Regular feedback meetings are an important management tool and have a positive effect on employee satisfaction. With us, commitment is seen and rewarded. High potentials have the opportunity to take the next step in their career planning with us through development discussions.

„If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.“

Working environment

The working environment is essential for the motivation of the employees. We make sure that the workload and tasks are always adapted to the know-how of our employees. Situations and environments that are harmful to the soul or body are identified and eliminated through regular rounds and conversations. Our employees can contact us at any time with potential for improvement. We offer our employees a modern working environment with state-of-the-art office equipment. Our offices and production hall are bright and air-conditioned, ensuring an optimal working environment. Meeting places such as our break rooms, social meeting points or our outdoor area with quiet zones invite you to exchange ideas with colleagues and spend your breaks together.

Employee satisfaction

Satisfied employees are the basis for personal commitment, willingness to perform, independent action and loyalty. For this reason, we attach great importance to the active involvement of our employees in our operational processes. A transparent flow of information, regular rounds of talks between the management and the individual employees is an important instrument that helps our employees to contribute their own ideas and suggestions for improving the company’s development. Through regular employee surveys, we always try to keep our finger on the pulse of our workforce and thus constantly identify new development potential. It is important to us that our employees identify with the company, because OKS is not just a company but the sum of all the individuals and their organisation that make us a company.
