CPC AG: Great Place to work 2015

Frankfurt am Main, March 4, 2015. In the nationwide Germany’s Best Employer 2015 competition, organized by the Great Place to Work® Institute, CPC was recognized for the fifth 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. As in years past, the competition offers a wide range of jumping-off points for intensive examination of issues relevant to our employees.

“We are very pleased with this fifth ‘best employer’ award because it underscores the importance of our human resources work,” explains Senior HR Manager Oliver Kleinknecht at the awards ceremony in Berlin.

Fairness is a value that is truly practiced at CPC, evidenced by the fact that between 93 and 100 percent of employees answered the various questions on fair treatment (regardless of age, gender or nationality) in the employee survey affirmatively. Burkhard Prumbs is convinced that the high degree of perceived fairness goes back to the corporate culture. “For example, our salaries for the same position are equal, regardless of gender. It’s always been that way at CPC,” adds Oliver Kleinknecht.

Before CPC was honored with the “Germany’s Best Employer 2015” award, CPC employees completed a comprehensive survey on central workplace issues related to credibility, respect, fairness, pride and team spirit. In addition, a “culture audit” was performed to rate the quality of the company’s human resource and management activities.

A total of approximately 600 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 the ddn demographic network, Handelsblatt, personalmagazin, and the StepStone job board.
