“Our participation in the competitions for ‘Germany’s Best Workplaces’ and ‘Best Workplaces in Baden-Württemberg’ not only makes us more transparent to the outside world, it also defines our position within the company. The results of the employee surveys conducted by the Great Place to Work® Institute show us that we continue to follow the right path,” declares Wilhelm Goschy, COO of Staufen AG. “As specialists in lean management, we deal with company leadership culture on a daily basis, helping companies optimize their value creation and management processes across all departments. And we practice what we recommend to our customers. It is important to trust employees, to transfer responsibility to them and to help them surpass their abilities.”
The consultancy, founded in 1994, supports numerous DAX companies as well as leading mid-sized companies to design more efficient processes and thereby lay the foundation for making an entry onto the digital stage. “Our most important capital lies in our outstanding employees. They fully identify with our company and contribute their many years of experience in the fields of production, development, purchasing, logistics and distribution,” Staufen executive Goschy proudly says of his team.
The awards they have won for work culture quality attest to the fact that the lean management consultancy employees, in addition to identifying strongly with their company, also have a strong sense of team spirit. “As a growing company, that strong we-feeling is particularly important. After all, we have increased our employee count by almost 15 percent in the past year alone,” Goschy points out.
In addition to appealing work conditions, we also offer the opportunity to work in a large variety of fields, both within and outside of Germany. Staufen AG recently opened an office in Mexico, and also has branch offices in Brazil, China, Switzerland, Italy and several eastern European countries. According to Staufen COO Goschy, “As an award-winning employer, will like to be compared to other companies.” More than 600 different-sized companies, across all sectors and regions, took part in the current study to determine the winners of “Germany’s Best Workplaces 2017”. The Great Place to Work® Institute has been carrying out this independent competition annually since 2002.
