Our guiding values

Like all Berner Group companies, we are committed to six core values.
They form our Group-wide corporate culture and provide the framework for the actions and decisions of all our employees.

b.brave

We have the courage to leave well-trodden and comfortable paths in order to dare something new. If mistakes happen, we face them, learn from them and win together.

b.hungry

We are driven by an unconditional will to perform and are convinced that extra effort pays off. We set ourselves big goals and pursue them with full commitment.

b.connected

Knowledge means a head start in the market. We network to the maximum in order to share and bundle our know-how and experience. In this way, we jointly develop the best possible solutions for our customers.

b.responsible

We bear the consequences for our actions. Therefore, we have a high sense of responsibility, think sustainably and act responsibly.

b.real

We are authentic, say what we think and do what we say. Commitment, honesty and humanity win.

b.proud

We do not believe in false modesty and are convinced that anyone who achieves top performance every day can be proud of it. We celebrate our successes and draw energy from them for future top performances. Our employees are proud to be part of a strong team – and we are proud of our employees.

Experience values – every day anew!

As CEO of the Berner Group I am proud to be able to say: 8,500 employees in three divisions at 55 locations are jointly directing the group of companies towards the future.

My father and company founder Albert Berner already shaped the Berner Group through the values underlying his actions and thus made it successful.

This success story and the underlying values will continue to shape us in the future and form one part of the values. Another part sets the stage for mastering the global challenges of the 21st century with courage and agility.

I am committed to these values and to ensuring that they are lived out in the Berner Group – every day anew!

be Berner Group!

Christian A. W. Berner
CEO Berner Group

Berner Group Value Award 2017

Let actions speak, experience values!

Corporate values only make a difference if they are practiced daily and by all employees. They shape how we appear, how we communicate with customers, with partners and with each other; how we act and make decisions. At some point they become part of “our DNA”.

Many employees are already demonstrating what the values mean in practice. We have therefore set out on a Group-wide search, across all locations and departments, for colleagues who stand for our values with their personal stories – in line with the motto “Let actions speak, experience values”.

Winning story b.brave
Markus Bode

This literally “worthwhile” story is about Markus Bode and his courage as a student and intern to approach Mr. Berner at our values kick-off event and point out ways to improve logistics.

See for yourself – our winning story for b.brave

Winning story b.hungry
Sergej Miller

b.hungry – what does that mean in concrete terms? Not letting setbacks get you down, not losing your ambition, believing in yourself.

Sergej Miller, field sales representative at Berner Germany, shows us how much this value pays off in our everyday working life.

Winning story b.connected
Alexander Tenner

In the fast-paced, digitalised business world, the most successful companies are those that are able to network to the maximum. Exchanging information and knowledge, learning from each other, implementing quickly – that’s how we get ahead. This is what our important driver value b.connected stands for.

Alexander Tenner, sales consultant at BTI, impressively shows how this can look in practice

Winning Story Special Award
Andrew Firth

Our shared values make our group of companies and each individual employee something very special. Not only do they provide support and orientation, they also lead us to success when lived out on a daily basis.

What our six values achieve can be seen impressively in what Andrew Firth has achieved together with the KENT team in Italy.
