The Top Employers Institute has awarded Knorr-Bremse the “Top Employer for Engineers in Germany 2014” prize. It honours the high attractiveness of the world’s leading braking systems manufacturer for the professional group of engineers with a certificate.
Knorr-Bremse is perceived as a driver of innovative, sustainable and technically sophisticated system solutions. An important prerequisite for lasting market success is dedicated, well-trained engineers who are passionate about the development of technologically excellent products. At Knorr-Bremse these engineers find an attractive work environment, which is characterised by fascinating technologies, modern workplaces and exciting careers and development opportunities.
The Top Employer Institute globally certifies employers with particularly attractive working conditions that support the personal and professional development of their employees. Only companies that meet the objective evaluation standards at a high level can qualify for the annually awarded certificate, the “Top Employer”. The evaluation criteria include not only the employer benefits but also the topics of performance-oriented work environment, modern HR strategy, opportunities for personal development as well as the innovative strength and market position of the company.
“We have placed special focus on creating the optimal framework for our engineers, so that they can develop outstanding technical products and systems. The good performance during the external certification is a confirmation of the previously implemented measures. At the same time, the process gives us valuable information about the areas in which we can further increase our attractiveness,” says Dr. Marc Pastowsky, Head of Human Resources at the Knorr-Bremse group.
