EDAG Engineering GmbH has once again received an award for its outstanding HR management. The independent jury of the Top Employers Institute testified to the outstanding working conditions offered by the world's largest independent engineering service provider in the mobility industry and technology developer for industrial solutions, and recognized its high level of employee orientation.
Cosimo De Carlo, director and CEO of the EDAG Group, is delighted at this latest award: "In our company, it is the people that matter most. The keen problem-solving skills and the high motivation of our employees are our added value on the market, and this certification shows that we can hold our own in a challenging and competitive environment with high demands."
The independent institute puts companies through an extensive validation process, taking numerous strategic and operative matters into account. Corporate strategy, HR development, sustainability, diversity, gender equality: this is just a small sample of the various fields that were subjected to the close scrutiny of the auditors during the certification process. The focus of validation is on internal processes – including talent strategy, apprenticeships, training, development, and onboarding.
Throughout, EDAG Engineering GmbH was compared with numerous other companies from the same industrial sector. Worldwide, a large number of well-known companies took part in this year's Top Employer competition – including 150 in the category “Automobile”. The results achieved are evaluated according to an international standard.
"This award shows that we offer an outstanding working and development environment, while at the same time giving us the opportunity to uncover further potential," says Wolfgang Fries, Head of Global Recruiting & HR Business Partner. "The renewed certification is no reason for us to sit back and do nothing: it substantiates our commitment to constant improvement, so that we can successfully take on the challenges of the changing world of work and ensure our employees a superlative environment not just now, but also in the future."
Holger Merz, CFO of the EDAG Group, underlines this idea: "We are constantly investing in HR development and in new working environments. These subjects are extremely important to us, to ensure that we maintain a consistently high level of attractiveness as an employer. We offer an environment of encouragement and development for potential applicants, but also especially for our employees."
