Team spirit characterizes our daily work
Production expertise plays an extremely important role at Murtfeldt. However, a healthy corporate culture is just as important. That means: In addition to performance-oriented wages and salaries, advanced training and instruction, Murtfeldt promotes team spirit with joint activities. Whether it's the weekly fitness sessions, the annual corporate chase challenge, sailing regattas, or bike trips, team spirit adds the right touch - particularly for daily work.
Activism in the name of a good cause
Murtfeldt employees do not just work up a sweat to do themselves good - frequently they engage themselves to help a good cause. CEO Detlev Höhner makes a contribution to a charitable project for each kilometre run or cycled by our employees.
Our social engagement has another aspect: We support schools, as for example, with the city dance project "schoolmotions". In addition, we have supported art and school projects in Zimbabwe and the development of a solar car at the University of Bochum, thus encouraging developments that aim to protect the world's climate.

What will be on offer? "Where a harsh word holds you, where real life prevails, where one does not succumb to illusions, because only reality is important. Where people don't beat about the bush and call a spade a spade. From clear, open nature, reliable, sunny, wilful, easy oath: Come to the Ruhr area." (sung by Herbert Grönemeyer at the official opening ceremony of RUHR.2010, Zollverein coal mine).
