These include childcare and support for caring relatives. In recognition of this, the company was awarded the "Excellent Family Friendly" seal.

At ORNAMIN, we see our task in making it as easy as possible for our employees to reconcile the various challenges.

Apprentice Company

The apprenticeship at ORNAMIN has a very special quality. In addition to the regular training of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce, the apprentices are organised in an independent apprentice company. Whether it is customer service in the factory outlet, preparation of trade fairs or online projects: here ORNAMIN apprentices learn to take responsibility, make decisions on their own, organise their own company, manage budgets and thus get to know the daily business even better. They report directly to the managing director.
