Raising the profile of the Vogtland region and surrounding area
CEO Rainer Gläss, a passionate skier, supports a local ski club through the company’s sponsoring activities and works to maintain and expand the slopes and cross-country trails around Schöneck. He is proud of his employees: “Our people are creative, hardworking, and very loyal, standing by the company. That’s the difference between us and a big city. And besides, who else can offer their employees a chance to go skiing right in their own backyard after work?” Physical activity and well-being are top priorities here. Employees can challenge themselves on a climbing wall or get a massage to relax.
But that's not all. The company also takes action to support creativity. GK has invested significant amounts in an innovation center, and it was the driving force behind nonprofit network SüdWestSachsen Digital e.V. The organization, which works throughout the southwestern region of Saxony, supports companies and institutions as they adopt new and advanced technologies. It also strives to attract creative visionaries and keep them in the area.
