In 2015, too, Staufen AG has been rated amongst the best employers in Germany. At the renowned “Germany’s Best Employers” corporate contest by the Great Place to Work® Institute, the consultancy company based in Köngen near Stuttgart has been recognised as one of the 100 top companies in the 50-to-500 employee category. Staufen AG has around 200 employees and, according to a recent “brand eins” study, is one of the best consultancies in Germany.
“As Lean Management specialists, dealing with companies’ leadership cultures plays a part in almost all of our projects. Placing trust in employees, giving them responsibility and helping them to develop further is not just something that we recommend to our customers, but that we practice ourselves,” explains Wilhelm Goschy, Executive Board member of Staufen AG. “By entering the ‘Germany’s Best Employers’ contest, we wanted to be measured and assessed. The employee surveys conducted by the Great Place to Work® Institute create transparency. Thanks to the award, we now know for sure that we are on the right track.”
Staufen AG supports a number of DAX companies and leading SMEs in optimising their value creation and management processes in all areas of the company. “To that end, we require staff with lots of practical experience in production, development, logistics, procurement, sales and distribution,” Wilhelm Goschy points out. “Team spirit and a high level of identification with the company are the hallmarks of working in our company,” as shown by the survey.
In addition to an attractive work environment, the business consultancy established in 1994 offers its employees numerous deployment and consultancy opportunities both within Germany and abroad. For example, Staufen AG has four offices in China. Outside of Germany, it is represented in Brazil, Italy and Switzerland as well as in a number of Eastern European countries.
“As a fast-growing company, Staufen AG depends on outstanding employees. For that reason, we are very happy to be measured against the benchmark,” says Wilhelm Goschy. More than 600 companies of all sizes and regions and from all sectors of industry participated in the current survey on the quality and attractiveness of workplace culture. All of them submitted to an independent assessment by the Great Place to Work® Institute. The “Germany’s Best Employers” contest has been an annual event since 2002.
