apsolut is one of the best employers in Germany
In the "Great Place to Work" competition 2021, apsolut is ranked 27th in the national ranking and 24th among ICT companies.
The international research and consulting institute "Great Place to Work" has named apsolut one of the most attractive employers in Germany and in the field of information and communication technology, or ICT for short. The SAP procurement consultancy with its headquarters in Bielefeld also ranked 13th among the participants from North Rhine-Westphalia.
A total of 610 companies with at least 50 employees from all over Germany took part in the competition. The ranking is based on an anonymous and voluntary survey among employees. The survey focuses on the quality and attractiveness of the workplace culture of the participating companies.
According to HR Manager Wiebke Arning, the excellent rankings are also a result of how the company reacted to the Corona situation. "It is said that in times of crisis people's character reveals itself. I think that we have shown character as a team during this critical time and have grown even closer together. Our goal was to make the move to the home office as uncomplicated as possible for everyone and at the same time to remain in regular contact with each other. To achieve this, we not only organised a lot, but above all we talked to each other a lot. No one feels left alone at home here," says Arning.
apsolut founder and Managing Director Thomas Herbst is also very satisfied with the result and confirms the great company culture. "The entire management team at apsolut is committed to values such as trust, respect and fairness. Great Place to Work is an important indicator of how far we actually exemplify these values. I'm just happy that we never lose sight of this human component in our often stressful everyday working lives," Herbst explains and casts a glance ahead: "As soon as it's possible again, I'm looking forward to celebrating this result in a very big way at the otherwise regular all-team meetings!"
