Recognised as a “Great Place to Work” for the fifth time in a row
Vienna, Wolfurt: For the fifth time in succession, Vorarlberg’s flagship enterprise asked the independent Great Place to Work Institute to carry out an employee survey on its behalf. Over 80% of the workforce responded to the 63 questions on the quality of Haberkorn as an employer. Every year, the Great Place to Work Institute presents awards to the
best employers in Austria. The assessment criteria for the jury are fairness, credibility, respect, teamwork and pride. At the award ceremony in Vienna on 15 March, Haberkorn was presented with the internationally recognised Great Place to Work Award as one of Austria’s top employers. Haberkorn ranked in an excellent third place out of 21 participants in the category X-Large Companies with over 500 employees. “Mutual esteem is something we practise; it’s not just a concept contained in our mission statement. For us, this award is confirmation that we are on the right track,” says HR manager Christoph Winder. “We shall use the results in our ongoing efforts to increase employee satisfaction,” he adds. As well as being a reliable and secure employer, Haberkorn offers a host of advantages for its employees. Everyone benefits from the commercial success of the business through a voluntary profitsharing scheme. The company has developed a programme aimed at promoting health in the workplace, which includes aspects of both mental and physical health, and has created a platform for all further training activities with the Haberkorn Academy.
Haberkorn is not just a great place to work but also a great place to learn. The Haberkorn apprenticeship, based on an ingenious rotational training programme, combines solid technical know-how and commercial knowledge. This makes the training period doubly fascinating for Haberkorn apprentices. Whether a new recruit or an experienced employee – every member of the Haberkorn team is valued and encouraged, as borne out by another study: over 92% of employees state that “overall I have to say that this is a very good place to work”.
