CHT Sustainability Report 2020


Our employees

“Many people with strong characters”

In recent years, the CHT Group has continued to develop and grow with new markets and product ranges being added. As a consequence, the demand for highly qualified and well-trained staff to meet future challenges has increased.

Employees are also the most important stakeholders of a company. We not only offer interesting tasks to potential applicants but also attractive working conditions and opportunities for further personal development. Within our personnel management we motivate our staff to show self-initiative and to take on responsibility. Through the group-wide management of personnel, CHT is not only able to provide personnel requirements worldwide in a targeted manner but can also offer young talents in an international environment the opportunity to develop and advance at an early stage. An extensive package of social benefits, apprenticeships and further education opportunities as well as permanent staff development are part of our worldwide targeted personnel policy.


Staff numbers

During the fiscal year for 2020 the staff numbers of our company increased worldwide by about 1.1%. The number of employees (compared to 2,237 in the previous year) was 2,261. In the largest company, CHT Germany GmbH (4 sites in Germany), 764 people are employed (+7 compared to the previous year).

94 of them were apprentices (+9 compared to the previous year).


Since 2019, the CHT Group uses its digital program #leadwhereyouare as a new tool for modern, independent and universally available management development. At the same time the tool promotes individual key competences in the digital field.

#leadwhereyouare is based on the following core elements:

Inspire: CHT leaders provide insights from their field of experience into highly relevant (leadership) topics in the form of a video message. A new video is published every month.

Connect: In 1:1 peer coaching, leaders discuss the challenges of daily life as a leader with their peers – both benefit and deepen their working relationship at the same time.

Grow: We offer four live online training sessions (3 modules each) on the following topics: leadership in a matrix organization, effective online meetings, team development and change management.

Sustain: A common digital platform, the “basecamp” for all content and for exchanges between each other.
