The evaluation was based on an extensive anonymous survey of employees conducted by Great Place To Work®. The internationally active organisation has been analysing and evaluating the workplace culture in various companies for over 30 years. The focus was on key workplace issues, which are categorised into the following five dimensions: Credibility, Respect, Fairness, Team Spirit and Pride.
"We are very pleased to have received certification as a Great Place To Work® the first time we participated," says Marco Feusi, CEO of HIAG. "The good result of the survey makes us proud and spurs us on to continue on our chosen path of retaining and promoting our employees," he continues.
3 questions for David Hübler, Head of HR at HIAG
Why did HIAG conduct an employee survey with Great Place To Work®?
HIAG aspires to be an attractive employer. In order to fulfil this claim, the company must be open to its employees and also face critical questions. Participation in the Great Place To Work® survey provides an ideal framework for this.
As Head of HR, what are you particularly pleased about the award?
Of course, I am very pleased that HIAG has received the Great Place To Work® certification for the first time. The high participation rate of almost 90% is also worth mentioning. The large amount of open feedback enables us to introduce targeted improvement measures to become even better. The internal analyses of the results are already in full swing. I am convinced that these will form an excellent basis for the further development of our workplace culture.
What does the award mean for HIAG?
The certification is not only an important stocktaking, but also an incentive to push ahead with positive developments. During the implementation of the survey, the topic of "workplace culture" was in the spotlight for a fortnight. Many valuable discussions also took place during the coffee breaks. This is very important for the company. Ultimately, all individual employee contributions contribute to the overall work culture.
