Endress+Hauser - a top employer
Manufacturer of measuring devices distinguished as one of Switzerland’s best employers
“Great Place to Work,” an international research and consulting institute, has presented awards to Switzerland’s best employers – including Endress+Hauser Flowtec AG in Reinach (BL), one of the world’s foremost manufacturers of flowmeters for the process industry.
"This award confirms that our corporate and workplace culture are on the right path and that our employees enjoy working here," says Marcel Ziltener, Director of Human Resources at Endress+Hauser Flowtec AG, expressing the firm’s pleasure at being selected. A total of 95 companies took part in the benchmark study in 2014, with 28 being selected as “Best Swiss Employers 2015.” Endress+Hauser Flowtec AG took the 5 place in the category for "Large Companies" with over 250 employees.
The gala awards ceremony was held in Zürich on April 15th. The basis for the companies’ distinction as attractive employers was a detailed survey of employees about central topics such as confidence in management, leadership skills, personal recognition, identification with the company, professional development, team spirit, work-life balance and health promotion.
A "culture audit" carried out by "Great Place to Work" also measured the quality of human resources and management work in each company. Ziltener explains: "We consciously and voluntarily underwent this audit from an independent global institution. We can be proud of the results – and we want to learn from them to become even more attractive as an employer.
