Investis’ most important ambassadors are its employees
The year 2020 was dominated by the corona virus pandemic, the effects of which significantly disrupted our lives. Investis was well prepared with a high degree of digitalisation and reacted quickly by putting measures in place to ensure the health and safety of all our employees, while ensuring and guaranteeing business continuity at all times.
Investis combines the strengths of a privately owned company with the financial clout of a listed group. Its organisation is characterised by lean structures with short decision-making paths, trust, transparency and dialogue. This allows Investis to react swiftly to changing market conditions and seize opportunities as they arise. During the pandemic this setup has proven to be very efficient.
Committed, well-trained employees are a key prerequisite to the company’s future success. During the reporting year 2020, Investis continued its efforts to position itself on the job market as a progressive employer with an open corporate culture and development opportunities. Investis’ employees contribute to the overall success of the group with their high degree of specialisation. All employees are entitled to at least five weeks of annual leave. Plus, an attractive working time model with a set number of hours to be worked during the year allows staff to flexibly plan their work time. Pandemic aside, Investis offers all employees with office jobs the chance to work from home. However, in all our locations, each employee still has a dedicated workspace of his own.
As at 31 December 2020, headcount stood at 1,321 employees corresponding to 1,016 full-time equivalents. 26 apprentices are completing their training in various professions at Investis.
Investis’ goal is to promote equal rights and opportunities for all gender identities across all levels and career paths. The equal treatment of all people in an organisation and in society is a crucial prerequisite for all individuals to be able to deploy their personality, their strength and unique abilities to thrive business for our group and to drive innovation. Equality between all gender identities is just one important example of the considerations we also make regarding other aspects of diversity.

Health and safety in times of covid-19
In response to the pandemic, the Investis Management Team has drawn a plan, which has been adjusted in line with any changes to the government guidance. This was used by every subsidiary as a basis for implementing several measures, which reached their initial peak in the middle of March 2020 when all our employees were asked to work from home. The second wave of the pandemic forced the entire company to start working from home again in October 2020.
