Democracy & worker participation: employees are simultaneously co-decision-makers
At our company, democracy and worker
participation are important core values. At our company, being an employee
means being a co-decision-maker, too. There are different "electoral
districts" depending on the decision-making dimension. Decisions about
topics which affect the entire company are also taken and supported by the
If a decision affects only one department, this vote is decided among the corresponding employees. Decision drivers prepare the decisions and bring them to vote. If someone in the company has the feeling that something is going in a wrong direction or the taken decisions should be reconsidered or changed, this person can put in a veto. The right of veto is absolutely independent of the employee's position or the decision-making level.
