Weidmüller receives Top Employer award again

Top Employer Engineers 2020 – the family-owned company receives the award from the Top Employers Institute for the twelfth time

Detmold, 7 February 2020. Committed human resources management, excellent employee conditions and a harmonious work environment: The Top Employers Institute presented the Detmold-based electrical engineering firm Weidmüller with the ‘Top Employer Engineers 2020’ award for the twelfth time.

Employees are at the heart of business operations

“We're delighted to have been presented with the ‘Top Employer Engineers 2020’ award for the twelfth time,” says Andreas Grieger, Executive Vice President Global Human Resources at Weidmüller. After all, the award demonstrates that the family-owned company puts its employees at the heart of its business operations and continues to create an employee-friendly working environment. “We can only achieve our business goals if our employees are satisfied and motivated in the workplace,” adds Grieger.

Human resources planning and leadership development

Weidmüller won over the independent jury this year in particular in the areas of human resources planning and leadership development. What's more, the group company had grown in various areas compared with the previous year, especially in terms of its talent strategy. “The award confirms that at Weidmüller the combination of growth, challenges in digitalisation and new workplace design is always shaped in a way that is focused upon the employees,” continues Grieger.

Employee needs are a priority

A guiding principle applies at Weidmüller: Understand the employees' needs and create good working conditions. To grow employees' skills, the Weidmüller Academy offers many further and advanced training opportunities. What's more, employees also enjoy a range of health management initiatives: with various opportunities for sport, health and work-life balance.

“For a better world of work”

To be recognised as a Top Employer, as part of a multi-stage evaluation process, a company must prove that the implementation of its human resources strategy enriches the working lives of its employees. Weidmüller convinced the objective and independent jury of its attractiveness to engineers. “Certified companies are a great example of committed human resources management, ongoing improvement and the promise: ‘For a better world of work’,” emphasises David Plink, CEO of the Top Employers Institute.
