Thank you day

Gratitude Has Many Faces

Thank you, merci, gracias. There are countless ways to say thank you – as our ContiTech colleagues from the production team discovered last summer, when a total of 177 “Thank You Activities” took place. Well done to everyone involved – and keep up the good work! 


Free ice-cream or curry sausage for everyone, managers helping in the production and employees taking part in a fun run together all make a welcome change – and show our gratitude. Our “Thank You Activities” are focused mainly on our colleagues from the production areas. The conducted activities were already a big hit in 2018.  


The locations became creative in planning different activities to convey thanks. A toolbox on ConNext with ideas and tips helped managers to brighten their teams’ working day. A total of 177 activities took place during the summer months – from greetings cards to teatime talks.


Head of Human Relations Diana Hoppe explains: “The activities were extremely well received. Our business area has the largest share of production employees in the entire corporation. The work that they do every day and the contribution that they make to our company should therefore be recognized. We are working together to develop a culture of appreciation.”
