Detmold, 10.02.2015. In 2015, the medium-sized company Weidmüller has once more been counted among the German firms leading the way in terms of human resources policies and management. The Top Employers Institute from Düsseldorf has certified the Detmold-based family-owned company as a “Top Employer for Engineers” for the seventh year in a row as part of its annual international assessment. The “Top” certificate is awarded to companies with a high level of employee orientation and above-average employer benefits. In this regard, Weidmüller cut a convincing figure this year, offering a wide range of creative initiatives, fringe benefits and a talent management system that is coordinated with the corporate culture.
With our in-house academy based in Detmold and Shanghai, we can score especially in the aspects of developing opportunities for our employees.
Personalised total package has to fit to the employees
“Even for us as a medium-sized company, it is important to have a strong employer brand,” explains Dr. Jürgen Ober, Weidmüller’s Chief Human Resources Officer. “We are competing with a whole host of larger companies and hidden champions not only in the region of East Westphalia-Lippe, but also worldwide. We are doing everything we can to win potential talent. The only way we can do this is by offering a personalised total package. Since we are a family-owned company operating in the international arena we have the advantage of flat hierarchies as well as short decision-making channels. Employees also benefit from the attractive career development opportunities we offer.”
