“Our corporate culture values the practical approach and promotes mutual empathy and respect. Company objectives can only be achieved if all of our employees across the world work together to this end. The Dussmann Group therefore promotes individual responsibility and personal development and recognizes achievements. Our communication is open, honest and self-critical.”
Catherine von Fürstenberg-Dussmann
Chairperson of the Board of Trustees, Dussmann Group
KulturKaufhaus employees are proud of their work and are aware of the importance of their contribution to the success of the company. Appreciation and respect play an important role in mutual dealings: they strengthen team spirit and give each individual the opportunity to play their part. Reliable work schedules and flexible working times enable Dussmann Service personnel to maintain the life-work balance. Fair wages and punctual payment establish a basis of trust.
Once a year there is a state opera Sunday at Dussmann das KulturKaufhaus when all proceeds are donated to the state opera Unter den Linden in Berlin.
But the main focus of the Dussmann Group's sponsoring is on the Promotion of the cultural education of children and Young adults. More than 100 children's libraries have been donated to schools, child-care facilities and children's wards in hospitals. The winners of the annual Dussmann music competition at the Music high School Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach perform on the stage at KulturKaufhaus.
We constantly improve the skills and qualifications of our workforce at the company's own training center, the Dussmann Campus and at the Kursana Akademie.
