As part of our health management, we offer our employees a wide range of activities, including yoga, back exercises, football and running groups. Koelnmesse also regularly supports participation in running contests such as the B2Run Cologne and the Cologne Marathon. In addition to the sports activities on offer, we also promote healthy lifestyles with campaigns focused on nutrition and other aspects.
Special services and benefits
Our events generate enthusiasm for products, brands and industries. As an employer, we want to inspire you. It is our steadfast conviction that employees can only work well if they are satisfied.
To this end, we create an attractive working environment characterised not only by challenging and exciting positions but also by our collegial corporate culture and various benefits.
We offer working time models that give you flexibility in organising your work and leisure time. Using a flexitime model, mothers, fathers or caregivers can flexibly adapt their working hours to family needs.
In addition to their salaries, our employees benefit from an individually calculated amount that is paid into the pension fund of the City of Cologne and which, as a company pension scheme, supports them beyond the legally stipulated amounts.
They also benefit from special payments such as Christmas and holiday bonuses, long-service anniversary bonuses and childbirth benefits.
Each of our employees is provided a Microsoft Surface device. In combination with a modern IT infrastructure, this enables flexible and mobile work in the high-rise trade fair office building, on the exhibition grounds, on business trips and, when needed, from their home office.
For most of our events in Cologne (e.g. gamescom, CCXP Cologne, Anuga, INTERMOT COLOGNE, imm cologne and many more), all employees receive free tickets which can also be passed on to family or friends.
We want our employees to be able to get to work easily by train, bicycle or car. A parking space in the multi-storey car park at the high-rise trade fair office building is available free of charge to colleagues arriving by car. We promote CO2-neutral mobility by offering bicycle leasing, which our employees can use to lease bicycles and pedelecs at favourable conditions.
Koelnmesse places particular emphasis on the individual and practical training opportunities available to its employees. The range of further training offers extends from IT workshops and intercultural training, presentation and sales seminars to special management workshops related to current or future job activities.
