The Foundation for Our Success: Our Employees

Without dedicated employees, it would be impossible for us to continue to grow and lead the market with innovations.

Our priority is to ensure that our employees feel connected to WAGO and act responsibly. We continuously strive to achieve the necessary conditions – every day of the week.

Important to Us:

  • Social standards
  • Diversity
  • Occupational safety and health
  • Lifelong learning

Maintaining: Social Standards

To guarantee this, we follow standards set by the international associations of the electronics sector: EICC and ZVEI. The basic labor standards of the International Labor Organization and the UN Declaration of Human Rights are integrated into these standards and thus into the Code of Conduct enacted for the WAGO Group. Company agreements with unions form a substantial contribution to high social standards. In addition, since 2012 we have been a member of the UN Global Compact, an international multi stakeholder initiative, and support the ten principles of responsible corporate management.

Advantages: Diversity

We view a diverse workforce as an opportunity. One approach is, for example, the support of women in technical occupations with a focus on mentoring and women-specific events. These initiatives have developed into a comprehensive WAGO women's network focusing on aspiring female professionals and managers. We signed the “Charter of Diversity” in 2017, and have participated in the “5th International Diversity Day.”

Our employees should know that they are valued, regardless of gender, nationality, ethnic background, religion or beliefs, disability, age, sexual orientation or identity.


Promoting: Occupational Safety and Health

Our products stand for high quality and exceptional usability. We also want to make our workplaces as safe as possible for our employees. To achieve this, we introduced a management system based on the OHSAS 18001 standard for our occupational safety and health protection policy. In addition, our facility health management offices offer diverse programs to actively promote and maintain the health of our employees.

Enabling: Lifelong Learning

Professional training and qualification programs at all levels give our employees a chance to develop their potential and improve their skills. This increases their motivation and makes WAGO attractive to new employees. Since 1998, the WAGO foundation has supported especially successful trainees in nine different professions. Each year, as part of a public ceremony, the best trainees from two local counties are awarded prize money.

Work–Life Balance

We Accept Responsibility.

With WAGO Plus – our program to unite leisure time and career – we want to support our employees to the greatest extent possible. This is the only way to promote their optimal development.
