With this meeting, we would like to thank them for all they have done for our company’, says Roland Kühl, Managing Director of Raffinerie Heide.
The Works Council is also very pleased that so many former colleagues came to Stadttheater Heide to catch up with their old company, but also find out about the entire industry. ‘With this event, we express our appreciation for our former colleagues, which is something very close to our hearts as a Works Council,’ explains Kai Bergmann, Chairman of the Works Council of Raffinerie Heide. Norbert Weber, Head of HR at Raffinerie Heide, adds: ‘The Pensioners’ Meeting has become something very special for us over all these years and I am glad that so many employees remain loyal to us and joined us even after their active service.’
