Once again part of the top 50 in "Germany's best employers" in 2022
According to the study, the Troisdorf-based family business is ranked 33rd overall, ahead of well-known companies such as ENBW and Daimler. In the category "mechanical and plant engineering", Reifenhäuser is the third best employer.
High approval of the employees"We are very pleased with the result, which is possible thanks to the encouragement of our employees. The best machines are of no use to us if we do not have the best and most satisfied team," says Bernd Reifenhäuser, CEO Reifenhäuser Group.
The Stern article on the publication of the study focuses on the topic of family businesses. Here, the focus is on the question of what actually constitutes them. As a representative example, the employee family Frings has its say about Reifenhäuser: "Our grandfather was already here," says Bianca Frings. When the world needed masks in the spring of 2020, Reifenhäuser converted its own test facilities to 24-hour operation. All the employees went along with it: "This has created a strong bond between us in an incredible manner," Bianca Frings continues.
Reifenhäuser employees recommend their own employerThe evaluation basis for the overall score of the study includes the two criteria of willingness to recommend one's own employer and other employers in one's own industry. The satisfaction of the respondents with the Reifenhäuser company is mainly determined by the very good performance in the topics "workload and balance", "pay" as well as "image and growth".
Behind these topics are evaluations of concrete statements such as: "I can organise my work by myself"; "Family is taken into consideration"; "Social benefits are offered (pension scheme, insurance, ...)" or "The company management is firm and loyal to the employees".
A total of over 50 000 employees took part in the survey and rated their own company as well as other companies in the sector. The catalogue of criteria includes image and growth, cooperation and supervisor behaviour, further development and perspectives, pay, conditions and equipment, sustainability as well as workload and balance. The survey took place in June and August 2021.www.reifenhauser.com
