The annual analysis is based on more than 127,000 employer assessments collected through an independent online survey, as well as survey data from the career network Xing and from Kununu. The most influential factor was whether or not employees would recommend their employer to others.
Employees are increasingly critical of the extent to which a company matches their personal expectations. At Koenig & Bauer, flexible working hours, on-site canteens, child day care, company pensions, barrier-free accessibility, health promotion measures and further training opportunities are just a few of the many benefits for employees. Xing members were especially appreciative of the solidarity among colleagues, the interesting work tasks and the work atmosphere. There was also positive mention of an ideal working environment, which in turn leads to a maximum of job satisfaction.
“The pioneering spirit of our founders has been driving our commitment to further development of the print industry for 200 years,” said Claus Bolza-Schünemann, president and CEO. “In the social sphere, too, we have assumed a spearhead role. Already before the introduction of state social security legislation, for example, Koenig & Bauer established the precursor of a company health insurance fund in 1855.”
