Corporate social responsibility

The happier your employees are, therefore, more suitable are your services for your customer. PIA is one of the employers committed to ensuring that their staffs receive top-quality training, from entry into the working life to pensions. The excellent development of our company is flanked by social and corporate measures according to social responsibility.
One of the core issues of PIA is to fulfil our social responsibilities. In co-operation with the RWTH Aachen University and the Aachen University of Applied Sciences, PIA offers students the opportunity of performing student research projects or doing diploma and master theses. The matter of course for us is to positively support the first step for young people on the career ladder.
To identify and disseminate good practices and encourage mutual learning is for each of us a matter of course. Also we are a family-friendly company with an adapted environment for retaining female employees and older workers.
By lasting improvement of the work conditions and well-being for all employees and costumers – including support social institute – PIA can see big returns in the form of a happy and productive workforce. In this spirit, our strong team of engineers, scientists, craftsmen and administrative staff is overjoyed to have a powerful and supporting cooperation with the Kanthari institute for many years.
