People are the lifeblood of ZEISS. For over 160 years, our employees’ passion to provide innovative product solutions and superior customer care has ensured our success in the markets we compete in. We understand that teamwork, dedication and commitment are critical ingredients for continued growth and we seek to attract and develop the best people we can.
This is precisely the reason why staff training is our number one workforce priority. The participation of around 10,000 employees a year in internal and external seminars testifies to this commitment. Locally, CZ ANZ conducts about 50 training sessions per year, a feat we are very proud of.
With training and success, come opportunities for advancement. We are proud to report that we have introduced more than 12 new roles over the past 12 months and that we have created over 30 new roles in the past 5 years. We are equally proud of the fact that some of our people are still with us after more than 30 years.
