Henkel confirmed as a family-friendly company 

Once again, Henkel’s family-aware personnel policy has been validated with the award of a “Career and Family Audit” certificate issued by the German charitable foundation Hertie-Stiftung. The review, conducted under the auspices of Federal Minister for Family Affairs Dr. Ursula von der Leyen, is a management instrument introduced to encourage the continuous improvement and promotion of a family-aligned corporate policy. Since its inception, it has developed into a “seal of quality” for an empathetic HR management approach. For many years now, Henkel has been offering its employees various ways and means for reconciling their work, career and family obligations, and the company has already received a number of additional awards for its commitment in this regard.

Henkel anticipates run on casein-free adhesives 

Numerous breweries and mineral water bottlers are indirectly affected by higher world market prices for dairy products. Traditionally used labeling adhesives contain casein obtained from cow’s milk. The price of casein has recently risen dramatically and, in the opinion of raw materials experts, is unlikely to decrease shortly. As an alternative, Henkel supplies innovative casein-free adhesives that perform equally well.
