Make your voice heard at SPS

At SPS, we welcome those who want to contribute and make a difference. Our teams operate within environments of open communication and employees are encouraged to express ideas and share opinions. Local communication channels are supported by an independently managed confidential annual employee survey. The survey provides feedback from employees across a range of work-related category areas. This allows managers and teams to understand levels of satisfaction and identify areas of focus where satisfaction levels can be further improved through targeted action plans which are regularly reviewed to ensure progress is being made. 

In 2022 and 2023 approximately 90% of all SPS employees participated in the survey and again the results demonstrated high levels of satisfaction, confirming our employees continue to feel connected, engaged and aligned to the aims of SPS 




At SPS we believe in the power of collaboration – regardless of national borders and functional areas. However, working in international teams is not always easy – especially if we do not speak a common language.  The aim of our language learning strategy is to enable employees to function effectively across the organization and achieve key strategic priorities by being confident in English or in German. Online language learning opportunities are available to a wide range of our colleagues – those who are part of cross-cultural team or are planning to enhance their career development by opening their scope to a more international role. 

Language should not be a barrier in nurturing our talents and fostering a culture that values collaboration – that’s why hundreds of our employees are participating each year in our Language4All program.
