The best employers of the year have been determined. A total of 97 companies were awarded the "Top Job Seal 2020" in Berlin on 28 February 2020. Remmert GmbH was able to receive the trophy from the former Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel at the recent award ceremony. Gabriel is patron of "Top Job". Every year the most attractive employers in German SMEs are honoured with this seal. The award, which is presented by the Centre for Employer Attractiveness, zeag GmbH, is given to companies that are consistently committed to a healthy and at the same time high-performance workplace culture.
Remmert GmbH was founded in 1945 as a locksmith's, plumbing and installation company and over the past 75 years has developed into one of the most successful mechanical engineering companies in Germany. Today, the two brothers Matthias and Stephan Remmert are at the helm as managing directors. With its currently over 130 employees, the manufacturer of storage and logistics systems has established itself as an innovative expert for automation and intralogistics solutions in the metal processing industry. The fact that Remmert fulfils its role as an employer in the region of Löhne in a responsible manner is confirmed to the medium-sized company by the repeated award of the Top Job Seal.
Holistic approach to the demands of the workforce
"Our employees are our most important capital", explains Managing Director Stephan Remmert. That is why he is specifically committed to a good working atmosphere. Teamwork, familiarity, appreciation and respect are core elements of the company's everyday work and management style. This is demonstrated, for example, by a strategy wall, through which long-term plans in the company are communicated transparently to everyone, and the regular employee breakfast. A programme for the individual promotion and further training of employees, a flexible working time model with part-time and home office options and benefits in the form of subsidies, for example, for the fitness studio and for retirement savings complete the mindful personnel policy at Remmert..
"We know very well that optimum working conditions are a decisive factor for everyone in the company in order to use their qualifications and fully develop their professional potential," comments Matthias Remmert, Managing Director of Remmert GmbH. "And, of course, for us as an employer, it is part of good corporate manners to show our employees the necessary appreciation for this. The fact that this has once again been recognised with the Top Job seal is an additional motivation for us to continue to ensure an employee-friendly working atmosphere in the future".
