A German web publisher and employment platform has rated press maker Koenig & Bauer in top 30 'best employers' in the country.
Focus magazine Focus and the Kununu employer assessment platform name their top 1000 employers of the year, this year placing Koenig & Bauer - which has plants in Bavaria, Saxony and Baden-Württemberg - at number 27.
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 Xing career network Xing and Kununu.
The most influential factor was whether or not employees would recommend their employer to others.
Flexible working hours, on-site canteens, child day care, company pensions, barrier-free accessibility, health promotion measures and further training opportunities are among the benefits for Koenig & Bauer 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.
President and chief executive Claus Bolza-Schünemann says the pioneering spirit of the group's founders has driven a commitment to further development of the print industry for 200 years. "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," he says.
Koenig & Bauer's in-house training school will celebrate its 150th anniversary this year, making it one of the oldest in Germany.
