Tegonal becomes a cooperative: Everything remains different
We have converted Tegonal GmbH into a cooperative with retroactive effect from the beginning of January 2022.
For our customers and partners nothing will change. There are,
however, some reasons that promote the conversion.
Since our founding in 2004, we have structured the GmbH in a form in which all shareholders have equal shares and
rights and long-term committed and motivated employees can participate in the GmbH. In the legal form of the
cooperative, these and other of our principles can now be much better integrated.
Tegonal's purpose is to be a good and flexible employer, with fair working conditions, interesting work and fair pay.
Maximizing profit or shareholder value has never been part of our strategy. Instead, we place a strong emphasis on
participation, self-determined definition of workloads and flexible work locations. Tegonal consists of the sum of its
employees. The new structure strengthens the bond between the employees and the company. Our customers appreciate
working with motivated employees who are involved in projects on a long-term basis, and we want to maintain this
situation in the long term.
At Tegonal, we plan projects and internal tasks in an agile manner and with the involvement of all stakeholders. We
also live this form of organization at the strategic level. The goals are flat structures and a company without
hierarchies, living corporate democracy. The statutes of the cooperative now stipulate the possibility of employee
participation. This participation is much easier to implement in a cooperative than in a GmbH. Silent partners are no
longer possible. Employees who leave Tegonal also cease to be cooperative members.
We are pleased that our customers can continue to rely on a long-term committed and motivated team, with a large
backpack of know-how and innovative spirit.
Software development stays our skill!
