Our team

We are Kala

We are proud that the principles of tradition and modernity are also reflected in our workforce.

Committed and qualified employees are crucial for the success of our company. In addition to flat hierarchies and a casual corporate culture at all levels, we ensure that our organization maintains a familiar, relaxed atmosphere and look forward to our annual team events and celebrations.

We work a 37.5-hour week, which can be flexibly implemented in the office. For us, mobile administrative work during the week is just as much a part of this as modern office equipment. In the commercial area, we work 24 hours a day and 5 days a week according to fixed shift times, which change in weekly rhythms.

In addition to high-quality coffee, water and fruit are available to our employees at all times. A daily changing lunch menu is available in our own subsidized canteen.

Our employees can also take advantage of other benefits such as the JobRad, HVV ProfiTicket, their own parking space, 30 vacation days, language courses, weekly in-house training courses, company pension plan, asset management and other social benefits. Benefits and other social benefits are available to our employees.

Through our ideology of promoting young talent, accompanied by our moral compass (Code of Conduct), we see ourselves as a “Kala family”!
