A CULTURAL INITIATIVE THAT INSPIRES
ABOUT THE ACTIONS
Sport activities, painting actions, competitions, concert and exhibition visits, reading aloud evenings and much more are combined in the multifaceted cultural programme, KIRCHHOFF Culture Life. KIRCHHOFF Culture Life is intended to shape the corporate culture at KIRCHHOFF Automotive in the best sense of the word. The aim is to strengthen the cohesion of all employees in the family-run company and to create an atmosphere of well-being. And it succeeds.
KIRCHHOFF Culture Life Thrills
The two opening events of the cultural initiative – a visit to the documenta in Kassel and a concert by the hip-hop band “Die Fantastischen Vier” with VIP access – have already spread smiles on many happy faces. All employees who travelled with us were completely enthusiastic. This impressive start was followed by cooking and reading aloud evenings, sports activities such as Taekwondo and business yoga. KIRCHHOFF Culture Life continues to develop and is now part of the daily operations of the locations in Germany, Poland, Hungary and Portugal. Throughout the year, KIRCHHOFF Automotive offers up to five campaigns per plant, each with a different theme.
Participation is Written in Capital Letters
During our painting activities, employees work together to create large-format abstract pictures, which we then hang up in the workplace. The results so far are absolutely amazing and garner great popularity with employees. In 2021, various KIRCHHOFF Group sites collaborated to design a photo calendar as a Christmas gift for all employees. The photos have been taken by our very own employees. A professional photographer accompanied the workshops and provided helpful tips. The result is four large-format photo calendars with impressive images.
A Unique Major Event
Every two to three years at various company locations, KIRCHHOFF Culture Life organises a cultural afternoon called “Culture Attack” that includes a colourful mix of music, literature and interactive activities. Many extraordinary musicians perform here in a wide variety of styles from classical to pop and world music. Invited are the KIRCHHOFF Automotive staff as well as family members and friends. Up to 500 people experience fireworks of the senses and rousing live-participation activities at these major events.
