People & Society

We value people and treat them with respect. We enable and empower our employees and we ensure safe working conditions. Beyond that, we take responsibility to contribute to a better quality of life for everyone.

The neighborhood around our sites plays an important role in our success. We can conduct our business successfully only if we have the trust and the support of our neighbors. For this reason, we take our role as a reliable partner and an attractive employer seriously and implement diverse social responsibility projects in our communities.

Empowering the next generation of refinish painters

The refinish business would not exist without refinish painters, so we work to show off the refinish business and attract new people to the refinish industry. We also support high, sustainable refinish standards in our core of diverse training and development programs. Whether it’s STAMPP, the R-M Best Painter Contest or the global WorldSkills competition, we empower the next generation of refinish painters and enhance their skills on the global stage that benefits local markets.

Building bridges into skilled work

Without training, you can’t get a job. Without a job, the range of prospects might get slim. To broaden the individual range of prospects for job opportunities, BASF Coatings not only offers a wide variety of vocational trainings, but is also involved in projects with regional partners to build bridges between schools and professional training sites early in a person’s career.
