Excellent result in study
The Muenster-based producer of adhesives and sealants Weicon belongs to Germany’s top employers among medium-sized companies. That was the result of a study carried out by the business magazine Focus-Business.
Weicon was ranked number 367 among the 2,800 most popular medium-sized companies in Germany, having achieved 156.8 points and even first place in the ranking of the best medium-sized chemicals and pharmaceutical companies.
In order to determine the top employers among medium-sized companies, the editors of Focus-Business along with the employer review platform Kununu evaluated 750,000 company profiles with approximately 3 million employer reviews.
Criteria for the ranking
To get into the final selection of the best companies, several criteria had to be met.
To be included, companies needed to have at least eleven and a maximum of 500 employees. The average rating on Kununu had to be at least 3.5 stars (on a scale from 1 to 5). Companies needed to have a certain minimum number of current ratings by employees and their headquarters needed to be located in Germany.
“We are very proud of having achieved such an excellent placement in the Focus-Business ranking. The award for belonging to the top employers in Germany has a strong signal effect inside as well as outside the company. For our employees, it is a positive message and motivation and for future applicants, it provides some insight of what working for our company looks like.
The award shows that our teams are pleased with us as their employer and that they like working for our company. Our employees are an essential part of our sucess. They deserve a special thank you for their performance and their great commitment.“ says Ralph Weidling, managing director of Weicon.
In times of skills shortage, companies need to be especially active and creative in order to recruit and keep qualified employees. Factors like work atmosphere, design of the workplace and benefits offered to the employees are a huge advantage for winning over new talents. Weicon offers its approximately 260 employees remarkable working conditions and was now awarded top employer among medium-sized companies for its dedication.
The complete list of top employers was published on November 28th, 2018 in the special edition of Focus-Business.
