Strengthening Workplace Culture

“Our partners at Dale Carnegie helped turn our vision into a
reality through THE VEKA WAY programme, taking our key
priorities and developing this bespoke programme based around the Dale Carnegie principles

Client Story

The VEKA UK Group is a world leading manufacturer of PVC-U window profile systems used for the refurbishment, construction & home improvement industries. They employ approximately 400 people in the UK and have investment in people at the forefront of the company’s vision. The VEKA UK Group is based on family traditions and values, with all VEKA Group subsidiaries being the daughter companies of VEKA AG in Germany. The same family is at the helm of the VEKA Group as it has been since day one in 1964.

VEKA UK Group has a strong vision for the future and clear company values which they aim for all employees, customers and suppliers to subscribe to. They have held Investors in People status for over 20 years. VEKA is
known for having “clarity of purpose and clear aspiration to achieve excellence in terms of vision, values and objectives.”

The Challenge

VEKA is committed to a culture that everyone can identify with and belong to – one that strongly reflects the values and standards of the company. This led to the creation of ‘THE VEKA WAY’ to ensure consistency of operations across the business and in how their leaders lead.

How we did it

Dale Carnegie is VEKA’s long term development partner. Together they created the VEKA WAY. Working with multiple groups across the organisation they deliver practical solutions that enable people to take ownership and responsibility for living and breathing THE VEKA WAY.
