Frankfurt, March 12, 2014. In the nationwide Germany’s Best Employer 2014 competition, organized by the Great Place to Work® Institute, CPC was recognized for the fourth time as one of the 100 best employers in the category “Companies with 50-500 employees.”

Awards went to companies who offer their employees an especially attractive workplace culture in a trusting environment where they feel valued. This competition gives CPC a wide range of jumping-off points for focusing on highly relevant questions relating to its most important asset: its employees! Participation in this competition is both an external benchmarking instrument and an important source of metrics.

“Although this audit of our company is primarily important in terms of how our employees perceive us internally, we are very proud of coming in 21st among the top 100 companies,” says Burkhard Prumbs, Senior Manager of Human Resources.

Indeed, 95% of the CPC’s employees agree with the following statement: “All told, I can say that this is a wonderful place to work.” 96% of the respondents characterized CPC’s workplace culture as having a very strong team spirit.

The Germany’s Best Employer 2014 award was preceded by an extensive survey of CPC’s employees on key issues relating to the workplace, such as confidence in management, leadership, appreciation, identification, professional development, team spirit, work/life balance and health promotion. In addition, a “culture audit” was performed to rate the quality of the company’s human resource and management activities.

A total of 580 companies of all sizes from all industries and regions participated in the latest benchmark study on the quality and attractiveness of the workplace culture and underwent an independent audit by the Great Place to Work® Institute.

The Germany’s Best Employer competition was launched by the Great Place to Work® research and consulting institute in collaboration with Handelsblatt, personalmagazin and the ddn demographic network.
