protecting people wherever we work. No matter where our employees workplace is located: From the reception area to the factory halls to product development - we all work together to protect people. We show pictures and tell stories from the world of work of the entire uvex group under #protectingpeople #whereverwework.
Michael Pyrsch, Head of Corporate Network & Security, uvex Winter Holding
"My colleagues and I are constantly working to protect the large amount of data on its way to the recipient. For me, Protecting people as an in-house service provider means supporting our users in their daily work in the best possible way and providing them with a secure, flexible and high-performance working environment".
Martina Stillger, interior designer, facility management at the uvex group
"My responsibilities include the supervision of construction measures and facility tasks in the whole uvex group. For example, I am responsible for the office space, surface area and relocation planning, but also for new construction, conversion and renovation measures in all phases of the work.
As a certified interior designer, I also accompany and support furniture consulting and planning. The majority of projects are realized at the headquarters in Fürth. However, I also work on projects at our uvex locations in Germany and abroad. Of course, protecting people also applies to construction projects, to the working environment and in detail to every single piece of furniture.
Only those who meet the highest standards of quality, design and ergonomics can provide optimum protection for people at their workplace".
Claudia Hoeckle, Key Account Manager International Sales at Filtral
"I supervise a wide range of retail customers and distributors worldwide. In addition to my classic sales activities, my job is to develop customer-specific sales concepts in cooperation with the specialist departments - from packaging to eyewear selection and display. A hypermarket in Luxembourg has different requirements than a gas station in Germany or an Aldi in France.
protecting people also applies to Filtral, of course, because every pair of sunglasses is manufactured according to strict PSA specifications and naturally offers excellent UV protection, just as uvex intends. At Filtral, we are also increasingly focusing on sustainability, for example by using bio-based plastic for the frame of our sunglasses to protect not only people but also the environment."
Jens Maile, Occupational Health Sales Force, uvex safety group
"I work in the field service for the uvex safety group and I’m responsible for the marketing of individual PPE. From the sportstyle RX and prescription safety/desktop glasses to fitted hearing protection and orthopaedic insoles for safety shoes - I provide competent and individual advice on these products to our customers.
I think, protecting people concerns all of us! Regularly I get to know new people with different needs.
With our products, I can help and support them in their daily work and therefore make their professional life safer."
