Focusing on the individual

You are important to us!

We believe we have a social responsibility to offer our employees not just employment, but development opportunities too. This is because we believe that people have an internal drive to learn and become better. The success stories of employees who have worked for decades at Bründl Sports confirms our philosophy. We are proud of our career paths, for example from trainee to shop manager, or from sales person to executive management.

We place special value on the health and wellbeing of our employees. Amongst other things, they benefit from discounted gym memberships, fruit baskets, lunch allowances as well as exciting talks, workshops and further education opportunities around the theme of health & fitness. We love to laugh and celebrate: be it collective concert visits or participation in sports events – we are a team and we spend lots of time together.

Bründl Academy

Our Bründl Academy, also called the school of life, gives our employees the opportunity to constantly develop their professional and personal skills. This ranges from sales training to communication courses to personality seminars. Individual professional further training is also very welcome and we love to be able to support our employees' drive to learn.

Regionality

We rely on strong, regional partnerships

Fair partnerships and cooperation with local businesses and service providers are extremely important to Bründl Sports. In our locations we are one of the largest contributors to the local economy. It is important to us that we strengthen the regions, support the economy, secure jobs and thus increase the attractiveness of the entire region. We believe that we can only make a difference together. We are also proud of the many regional sports clubs, events and projects that we are able to support as sponsors and partners. But we support charitable organisations too, such as SOS Children's Villages.

Our environmental impact

We have solar panels on our roofs, cool our buildings with glacier water and rely on energy-saving LED lights. But that is not all: for years we have made a lot of effort to pay attention to our environmental impact - not just since sustainability has been on everyone's lips.

Thanks to our solar panels and groundwater pumps we have reduced our CO2 emissions enormously and are able to produce enough electricity ourselves to meet all our lighting needs. In addition it is important to us that we ensure all building components and materials are of the highest quality in order to ensure excellent heat insulation.

With the internal furnishing of our shops and offices, too, we are careful to use materials that have a low carbon footprint and that are recyclable or made out of renewable resources. As well as this we have access to certified products, such as wood and paper that are FSC certified, which ensures that the wood used originates from socially and environmentally sustainable forests.

We inspire people

Sport is our passion and we want to share it with lots of people. We want to inspire people. Regular exercise helps to keep the body and mind fit and healthy. Therefore we are proud partners and sponsors of many regional sports clubs and events in popular as well as top-level sports.

Thus, for example, we offer skiing insctructors or members of ski clubs selected products at special prices, we make sure that racing skiers get the best equipment and ensure that their skis are race-ready.

Besides this, through dramatic and informative product tests and active experience days, we ensure that new sport categories and products can always be tried and tested. This motivates people and makes them want more.
