Employer ranking

Good grades for your boss

BEUMER Group in Beckum has been ranked one of the best employers in Germany. This is the result of a survey carried out by the news magazine FOCUS through the social internet platforms XING and kununu. FOCUS conducted an extensive study and questioned more than 70,000 employees from different hierarchy and age levels. 806 companies with more than 500 employees were evaluated from 22 industries.

"Would you recommend working for your company to your friends and to people you know?" and: "How satisfied are you with the managerial skills of your superior?" These are two of many questions that FOCUS asked the German employees. Many BEUMER employees answered "yes" to the first question. The family-run company ranked third place in this category, in comparison with medium-sized companies with up to 2,000 employees. The intralogistics specialist achieved eighth place in the industry comparison of "machine and plant design" and came 85th amongst all 800 companies. This makes the engineering company one of the best employers in Germany. "We are on the right track", Chairman and CEO of BEUMER Group Dr. Christoph Beumer was pleased during the award ceremony. "Our goal is not the short term profit, but long term success, and this is only possible with motivated and highly-skilled colleagues." For the family-owned enterprise, their employees are not considered as a mere cost-factor. "We can only achieve customer satisfaction and successfully meet the challenges of our competition, if we integrate the entire team sustainably into our company", explained Dr. Christoph Beumer.

This evaluation by FOCUS shows which companies offer the best working conditions and who stands out the most in their industry. BEUMER has also earned the FOCUS seal "Best Employer 2015", because of the high number of employees that would recommend BEUMER to others. The comprehensive results of the survey will appear in the current FOCUS Special entitled "Germany's Best Employers".
