We value the uniqueness of each individual - especially that of our employees. The different skills and characters make us strong and successful. For us, there is no "perfect" that applies to everyone. We don't think in terms of pigeonholes, grades or resumes - what counts for us is personality and motivation.
By signing the "Diversity Charter", Feldberger Hof has taken an important step. With this, we commit ourselves to promoting diversity and appreciation in the working world. At Feldberger Hof, 120 employees work together every day to ensure smooth operations. Over 20 nations are represented in our Kinderhotel. We stand for diversity and equal opportunities not only in terms of origin, but also in terms of gender, age, sexual orientation, physical and mental abilities, religion or ideology of our employees. Diversity in our working environment is not just a matter of course for us, but a building block of our togetherness, and equal opportunity is what makes us successful together.
The main cause of unjustified income differences is the wage gap between men and women, which averages 23 percent worldwide. In addition to the so-called gender pay gap, however, demographic characteristics such as age or origin can also be reasons for unfair pay. There is therefore a whole range of meaningful indicators that are used to identify possible inequalities in order to implement equality and pay equity at Feldberger Hof.
We offer many benefits. From friendly working hours and a fun working climate to free use of the hotel facilities… It’s never boring here!
You should be richly rewarded for your work, which is why good to above-average payment is one of our standards!
A detached building without any complicated credos and with a friendly atmosphere ensure that you feel good. Regular feedback discussions and the possibility to participate in training, further training and additional qualifications are available because individually supporting our employees is very important to us.
We organise many events in our employees‘ free time to strengthen the sense of team spirit. Not to forget the fact that our indoor pool, sauna, fitness studio and Fundorena with trampoline park, high wire park and boulder wall can be used free of charge! Upon request, you can also rent a personnel room close to the hotel with a TV connection and free WLAN.
We place importance on details for our guests and also for you. We sweeten your working day and facilitate communication with small extras.
If I had to sum up the job in three words, these would be:
fun, meaningful and diverse!
