Which family companies attract job applicants from a career perspective? The analytics institute ServiceValue, in cooperation with DUP, a German language entrepreneur magazine for digitalization and sustainability, sought to find out which companies are especially recommended to job seekers. The RECARO Group made it into the top 10 companies that enjoy the most positive image.
The ranking of “Germany’s Best Companies for Careers” is based on an independent survey with no involvement of the companies being ranked. In May 2021, ServiceValue and DUP magazine obtained and evaluated a total of 148,000 opinions on 500 family companies from 59 industries, including well-known brands such as Bosch, BMW, and Continental.
Based on their own experience and/or information from relatives and acquaintances, survey participants were asked whether they would recommend the companies as good places to pursue a career. They were specifically requested to consider the career prospects of young talents, job changers, and lateral entry employment seekers, as well as those of highly skilled workers and senior managers. An unweighted mean value was calculated for each company based on all the ratings, which used a four-point response scale. This resulted in a very positive outcome for the RECARO Group, with the Group placing ninth in the ranking and receiving a “very high recommendation.”
“We firmly believe that a brand is only as strong as the people behind it. That is why we offer our employees a positive framework as well as the necessary latitude to contribute to the company’s success. The career opportunities at RECARO are also as wide-ranging as our products,” explains Martin Putsch, Chief Executive Officer and Shareholder of the RECARO Group. “This ranking confirms the quality of our corporate culture as well as the values we live by. We are extremely pleased that outsiders perceive RECARO as an attractive employer brand, as this validates our commitment to continuing on our chosen path.”
