At GRS, over 440 staff members with diverse backgrounds play an active role in the protection of humankind and the environment. Our interdisciplinary team is composed primarily of specialists in the fields of physics, engineering, geology, chemistry, meteorology, biology, IT and law. Alongside exciting technical subject matter, there are also many other great reasons to work at GRS.
Lifelong learning: Training and Development
New staff members at GRS undergo preparation for their role via internal training modules in what is known as the GRS Academy. It is a permanent fixture within GRS that is exclusively responsible for the organisation of continuing education seminars. Alongside the internal offers, the GRS Academy organises regular additional training with other providers, such as the Simulator Centre in Essen.
Balance between Career and Family
GRS is a family-friendly organisation that supports their personnel to create a balance between career and family. To that end, GRS cooperates with various day-care centres and subsidises the monthly caretaking costs. If the original childcare option is suddenly absent or unavailable, GRS can gain access to nationwide emergency care. The costs for this service are covered by GRS. At three locations (Cologne, Braunschweig and Garching), there is also a parent-child room available.
Sport and Fitness: Team spirit beyond the office
GRS motivates their staff members with a variety of sporting options. There is lunch-break fitness and yoga on the premises. There are also cycling teams, and the chance to take part in volleyball and football games. The promotion of sport and fitness culminates annually, in an exciting, company-wide football tournament. The results speak for themselves: 30 percent of the workforce in 2017 took part in the Cologne Corporate Run, which earned them a place on the winner’s podium. Health is an important topic at GRS, and is promoted yearly with a Health Day at every location. Included among the various services are blood tests, vision tests as well as flu vaccinations.
