Our Corporate Culture
iwis is and will remain a family company, so the Group is inseparable from the founding Winklhofer family. Our value-oriented corporate culture and philosophy guarantee a strong sense of belonging and cohesion, open and
honest relations between management and employees, and mutual trust between the company and its partners and customers.
In 1895, company founder Johann Baptist Winklhofer (1859-1949) formulated his “Ten Commandments for people striding ahead”, at the same time laying the foundations for a philosophy that still motivates us today: we aim to keep moving, to expand and develop, and to stride ahead! The words of our founder are still true today and form the basis of our philosophy and our mission statements.
„Tradition – to know where you’re going, you must know where you come from.“
Our company mission statement describes what drives us, what makes us what we are and what is important to us: our motivation, our goals, and the principles that determine our actions.
iwis encourages and empowers its employees to take responsibility for their own performance. This empowerment of our employees and recognition of their abilities and performance have made iwis what it is today.
Our corporate philosophy describes our drive, the factors which define us, what is important to us: our motivation, our goals and the principles on which our actions are based.
The day-to-day working relationships at iwis is defined by the management and staff philosophy. These set our standards, our attitude and the framework for our daily cooperation.
The staff philosophy describes the rules of cooperation and the company's claim to health and ethics of the individual.
