Working with passion
'Heart working people' - it's easy to make such a statement, but few companies can present it with such confidence, that is backed up by a strong philosophy that comes direct from the heart of each and every one of its employees. We are passionate about what we do and that makes our 'hard work' easy.
The past lives on into future
Einar Viggo Schou, who purchased the Palsgaard Estate in 1908 and later established the Palsgaard factory, could express his fundamental values in just three words: loyalty, diligence and persistence. These values still form the core of our company - we just express them slightly different as loyalty, responsibility and commitment. Every one of us at Palsgaard is committed, loyal and responsible in not only looking after our customers but each other, the environment and the people within the local community.
The spirit of our founders lives on with modern values that contribute to the success of Palsgaard and its employees. As 'heart working' staff we are loyal, meaning we act responsibly and see ourselves as a reliable and honourable business partners with confidentiality as key.
We are responsible, meaning we care about our environment for the future generations to enjoy and to show our commitment, we have set ourselves an ambitious goal of becoming CO2 neutral by 2020 and are recent and very committed members of SEDEX and RSPO.
Commitment to our customers
We share commitment, meaning we are completely dedicated in our approach to making sure that we achieve the very best results for our customers at all times and more often than not, going beyond our customers' expectations.
The heart of the matter
The philosophy of employee commitment lies at the heart of Palsgaard's success. Our remarkably low employee turnover rate is a fine testament to show how dedicated we really are and how much we love our work and enjoy working with our customers all around the globe.
In fact, Palsgaard has awarded a 25-year service medal to no fewer than 253 employees. The depth of the experience they represent is a key reason why our advice to customers is recognised as some of the best in the world.
