Employee Participation

employees

The voestalpine employee shareholding scheme was established back in the year 2000. Ownership of company shares gives our employees a significant stake in our business success and supports the Group’s development over the long term.

The employee shareholding scheme is an important instrument in creating a respectful corporate culture. Our core principles include not only mutual respect, but also equity investment which combines strategic ownership with personal profit. 

The voestalpine Mitarbeiterbeteiligung Privatstiftung bundles the voting rights from over 26 million shares on behalf of more than 25,000 current and past voestalpine workers and employees. It also establishes two different forms of co-determination: via a seat at the Annual General Meeting, and a mandate on the voestalpine Supervisory Board.
