Our conviction and experience shows that internal communication & information in the company and its results contribute significantly to the economic success of every company and at the same time turn people into involved and motivated employees. We aim at HEART-WORK - not HARD-WORK.

"Show me, and I will remember" - is our motto. Our statements are credible and always tested and field-tested at the Schindlerhof. That is why the basis of our Academy is primarily the Schindlerhof - the Centre for Business Excellence.
