Continue together

Hellma is actively encouraging novel ideas and activities and is providing room for self-organization. Team culture, working together in a team and the process itself are in the focus and are again and again systematically improved. Every employee has personal strengths and professional skills. The company's success thrives on all employees and the teams are being supported in their growth. We have achieved a lot together and we want to continue forming the future successfully.

Our management philosophy provides guidance on this. It provides a secure basis to make progress. We promote teamwork and reduced bureaucracy, create more transparency and give incentives to grow both in person and as a company. We will continue along this path - for more agility and greater dynamism.

The center of our business culture

Corporate and senior management set up general conditions. They do not directly control the operational implementation.

Within these general conditions, staff members,using their own responsibility, work out solutions in line with the business objectives for themselves and their teams. Every team then organizes itself. This basis provides a high level of individual responsibility and organisational scope for every employee.

Our understanding of values

Our understanding of values characterizes all of the work within the Hellma group and is the foundation of our growth strategy. This joint foundation keeps us together and allows us to work together effectively.

We maintain and cultivate these values actively

  • Transparency

  • Tolerance

  • Courage

  • Customer focus 

  • Solution focus


  • Appreciation

  • Openness

  • Culture of trust

  • Optimism

  • Determination

With coordinated dedication achieving goals faster

The conditions of competition and the market are changing constantly. Within the meaning of customer retention it is important to react to this dynamically. This means for us to decide promptly and to act in a targeted manner. Prerequisite for this is a flexible matrix organization with transparent lines of communication and the reduction of bureaucratic obstacles. Thus we release energy for increased motivation and more efficiency.

We work as a team for customer-based solutions

We can describe obstacles and point out possible approaches. We are characterized by the ability and the willingness to reach consensus through communicative exchange as a team. This is how we achieve constructive solutions and outstanding results.


We embody our company and stand up for it

Mandatory trust, clear room to grow and utmost self-organization require real identification of every single employee with the assumed responsibility and the stipulated objectives.


We possess empathy

We are well prepared for different situations and changes. We observe moods and needs around us and are able to respond flexibly and adequately.

We meet one another with openness

Openness and a nonbiased attitude in every corporate sector are the basis for the building and maintaining of trust.

We think and act with a broad view of the big picture

We represent our own position self-confidently and nevertheless, always keep an eye on the big picture. We do not act on our own, but see ourselves as team players who achieve any goals together.

We decide and act decisively

We are firmly focused on our goal and work actively to reach it. If conflicts occur we embrace them and work together in finding a constructive solution in order to improve the situation.

We listen to each other carefully and we are tolerant

We have the ability to listen to one another and to be tolerant - even towards other points of view and perceptions.

We are committed to team success

Process and project teams see themselves as an entity. At all times, the team performance will be assessed and not the individual's performance.

We operate in a customer-oriented manner

A process or project team is in constant contact with adjacent interfaces, assessing and improving its own performance constantly in relation to the overall result for our customers.

We insist on a conflict-free supply chain

Hellma GmbH & Co.KG (Hellma Analytics) is committed to upholding ethical principles. Therefore, we do not want to tolerate or benefit from violations of international trade agreements, human rights violations or the execution of criminal offenses or war crimes. This also applies to a conflict-free sourcing of materials, which we want to ensure on the entire supply chain.
