GEZE honoured as a “Top Employer” for the sixth time
GEZE, the Leonberg-based specialist for door, window and safety technology, has this year again been named one of Germany's top employers. The company has received the ‘Top Employer’ seal of approval for the sixth time. The Top Employers Institute is the leading global certification organisation that recognises excellence in employee conditions. Founded over 28 years ago, the Institute this year identified and awarded over 1600 Top Employers in 119 countries and regions on five continents.
From apprentices to managers: GEZE focuses on continued training
Providing continuous and further training to employees is a key factor in granting the ‘Top Employer’ award.
Continuous and further training for employees, and the environment a company creates to enable these employees to develop their full professional and personal potential, are key factors in awarding ‘Top Employer’ accolade. Sinem Turan, GEZE HR Manager Germany, says: “GEZE's employees work in a wide range of professional fields – from traditional technical professions to software and app development, sales, and commercial areas. That’s why we don’t have a single standard solution for talent scouting and employee development at GEZE. We develop individual plans and define common goals for continuous and further training.” This is an effective approach that’s reflected not only in GEZE’s low staff attrition rate. Many of GEZE's experts and managers began their careers with the company, joining it through an internship or dual study programme. Flat hierarchies, the opportunity to take on responsibility, short decision-making paths and the company’s international focus ensure the perfect conditions for this.
