»I want to continue to develop and in so doing learn to undertake new tasks«

René Kuhn is Team Leader Logistics for the NOOS 1 and 2 departments at s.Oliver. His tasks include dealing with handling volumes, stocks, unit costs and process documentation, as well as outlining optimisation requirements and implementing inventories. René began as an apprentice at s.Oliver around 15 years ago, initially training as a warehouse management specialist. He then progressed from Deputy Floor Manager to Floor Manager, finally becoming Team Leader. »I learn new things every day at s.Oliver, and I am able to keep on developing.« Another reason René enjoys working at s.Oliver is the colleagues in his team. »It’s fun to work with them and to achieve the objectives we are given,« he says. No two days are alike for the logistics expert, after all, »Logistics is a very demanding and wide-ranging field; each day we have to move hundreds of thousands of items, and that requires a lot of organisational skills and planning,« he explains.

René Kuhn feels very much at home in the Würzburg area. The Old Main Bridge, the Marienberg Fortress and the baroque Residence all contribute to a good quality of life in the beautiful town in Lower Franconia. René recharges his batteries for work by taking part in sports: »I like to push myself to my physical limits, and that enables me to cope with the pressures of my everyday work tasks.« The flexible working hours at s.Oliver make it easier for René to keep important private appointments. Overall, s.Oliver does a lot for its employees. This includes support for employees who need extra help due to illness, an important factor for René. »I see that as a valuable, very family-oriented benefit.« True to the motto of »give and take«, the employer’s commitment is returned by the employee: employees like René give their personal best, because the company’s goals can only be achieved by working together. s.Oliver is a family-owned company. The family members are actively involved in corporate governance. »As a result, you can feel a special passion in the company,« says René. He has come to know s.Oliver as a familial, competent, forward-thinking and innovative employer. And when it comes to fashion, René – whose favourite line is s.Oliver DENIM Men – can also identify with s.Oliver.
