Hager Group makes Germany’s “Best Employer 2021” rankings for the eighth consecutive year

Who carried out the study?
Focus-Business magazine in cooperation with Kununu, the employer assessment platform.

What were the selection criteria?
In order to be selected, a company had to have:

  • an overall average score on Kununu of at least 3.0 points (on a scale of 1 to 5)
  • a total of at least 50 opinions, 10 of them since 2019
  • an operation in Germany and at least 500 employees
  • a recommendation rate of at least 60%
More than 950,000 companies and over four million assessments by employees on the Kununu web platform were analysed to identify the 1,300 companies that met the selection criteria and to give recognition to 1,000 of them.

You can see all the ratings of the 1,000 best employers in Germany in the 20 February 2021 issue of Focus-Business magazine.

What set the Hager Group apart?
81% of our employees in Germany recommended Hager Group and we obtained an overall score of 4.1/5. The four criteria used to determine the choice were:

- careers and remuneration
- corporate culture
- working conditions/our Corporate Social Responsibility policy
- diversity
We gained at least 4/5 for each of these criteria. The most highly appreciated cultural factors were our contribution to long-term success, community spirit and customer orientation.

Crisis management achieved an even higher score (85%), with particular mention being made of good decisions taken to ensure the health and well-being of our staff.

Why are these awards so important?
Attracting new talent is a challenge, and employer assessment portals like Kununu are a valuable aid in overcoming this. Applicants use them to gain a first impression of the company, then hopefully join us!

Your support will enable us to retain our title of “Best Employer”, and attract and inspire new employees.
