TGE IMS is applicable to the operating units Bonn including the office in Manchester and the operating unit Shanghai. It is also fully applicable on construction sites where TGE is in charge of erection. The product and services covered by the scope of the TGE IMS are defined by the type of service and contract and by the purpose of the delivered hardware.
In view of subcontracted works the scope of the TGE IMS is limited by TGE´s actual ability to exercise control and influence. This may depend on the project specific situation.
Regardless of where TGE’s employees live and work, they are the key to TGE’s future growth and success. Recognizing the value that each employee brings to the company, we build on a corporate culture in which work-life balance, employee health, and professional development and training are central. Our goal is to ensure that each and every individual feels accepted and valued in the company – regardless of their position, gender or cultural background.
