Overview

Enablers for our Ways of Working

The enablers for our Ways of Working

The guiding principles

Since 1996, our values have remained the same. Responsible, Team-oriented, Entrepreneurial: These guiding principles are the basis of everything we do, and everything we achieve.

Leading into the future

Our leadership practices shape what leadership looks like at Viessmann Climate Solutions. They offer the guidance necessary to create a supportive workplace at all levels.

Respecting differences, whatever they may be

We understand that the way we work is influenced by a number of factors ranging from the nature of our work to the needs of an individual as well as their team. We offer different Work Types to respect these differences, and provide a framework for success.

Spaces that reflect our culture

Workspaces reflect our company culture: If we talk about co-creation, we must offer space for co-creation as well.

Necessary measures for sustainable success

As our teams grow more flexible and distributed, the support necessary for sustainable success has grown as well. Viessmann Climate Solutions offers a health and vitality program to ensure our Viessmann Climate Solutions employeess have the opportunity to focus on their physical and mental health.

Better meetings, wherever they may be

Meetings should stimulate discussion, strengthen teams and drive projects forward. Communication is key, and finding the right channel is just as important as sharing your message. Our basic principle: We schedule as few meetings as possible, and as many as necessary.

Cross-functional teamwork creates value

Whether for tech or sales, or on administrative project teams: In every aspect of our work, we work on cross-functional teams to co-create living spaces to come.

Work Types

Our Work Types

At Viessmann Climate Solutions, we defined three Work Types that include on-site, remote, or hybrid models fitting with the type of work as well as needs of our employees. Independently from our Work Types we value and place emphasis on meeting in person to co-create the future.

Workplace Enthusiast

The Workplace Enthusiast returns to a fixed workstation every day. They have a specified desk or space allocated to their work, and they are on-site most days.

Hybrid Pro

The Hybrid Professional (the Hybrid Pro in short) is an expert in working both on-site and off-site. Hybrid Pros understand the benefits and limitations of hybrid work, which is why they responsibly weigh up when it makes sense to work on-site and when they should work remotely.

Digital Nomad

Digital Nomads work within their role and the company’s infrastructure to ensure a mobile workplace whenever possible. They do not have a fixed workplace reserved for them on-site. Nevertheless, they meet in-person with the team at least once per month. This work type is especially common amongst Viessmann Climate Solutions members who work “on the road”, or on-site with our partners and customers.

Healthy Routines

Necessary measures for sustainable success

At Viessmann Climate Solutions, ViEnergise is our in-house health and vitality program. We strive to provide a comprehensive range of support and tools to ensure all employees have the opportunity to care for their physical and mental health. Our holistic approach focuses on four areas: Physical health, mental health, balanced nutrition and social/emotional well-being.

#ViMoveforClimate

In addition to ViEnergise, we are particularly proud to offer ViMove. The idea is simple: You exercise, and we reward your activity by planting trees – now in our own forests. Every kilometer covered and every minute spent working out, counts towards a greater goal: Reforestation, and caring for our climate.

Co-Creation

Cross-functional teamwork creates value

At Viessmann Climate Solutions, you'll hear the phrases "co-creation" and "cross-functional teamwork" a lot. While you might call these workflows an "agile way of working", we call it "co-creation" as we believe that this is the ultimate goal of working together. Within cross-functional teams, our colleagues can bundle their expertise and knowledge while working together across their differing backgrounds to find smart solutions.
