Benefits

We believe in the value of feeling valued, which is why we have developed YourBenefits, a comprehensive benefits system expressed by a molecular diagram. As a company built upon science, this depiction of small elements combining to form a large, cohesive structure is the ideal model for our modern corporate culture and employment rewards.

We know there’s more to a satisfying job than your daily tasks. We want to create an environment in which people feel individually understood and supported. YourBenefits was developed to show our appreciation and celebrate the close connection between SCHOTT and its employees.

How do we spend our time? On our own terms or on someone else’s? Of course, effective teamwork in a global company comes with clearly defined tasks and binding schedules, but we put great stock in personal responsibility when dealing with work time. At SCHOTT, trust-based working hours are firmly established in many areas.
Trust-based work time

Time spent at work does not have to follow a rigid pattern, but rather the needs of our employees. Well coordinated and transparent.
