The company myonic GmbH received an award as one of the best German employers in 2020 again in the Great Place to Work® competition called “Germany`s Best Employers 2020”.
On 26th February, 2020 the 100 best employers in Germany were announced in Berlin. myonic came in 9thin the category „251 - 500 employees“. Those companies were awarded which had an especially reliable, beneficial and attractive workplace culture from the point of view of the employees. Before the competition workplace criteria such as trust, identification, team spirit, professional development, remuneration, health promotion and work-life-balance were investigated by the independent Great Place to Work Institute. Basis for the evaluation was a detailed and company-wide staff survey about their experience with the workplace culture (2/3 of the assessment) as well as a management survey concerning the measurements taken in human resources (1/3 of the assessment). In total 840 German companies took part in the current benchmark survey. They subjected themselves to an independent examination by the Institute; 100 of them were awarded within the competition „Best Employer 2020 in Germany“ with the Great Place to Work® quality seal in 6 categories subject to the ranking lists. Companies such as Johnson&Johnson, Mars, Adobe, Gore and Siemens are among the best employers in Germany, too.
myonic has participated in this competition for several years in order to continually check its workplace culture and take measures resulting thereof. The efforts are worthwhile: In 2014 and 2016 myonic was among the top five employers in the regional competition “Best Employers in the Allgaeu”, 2018 even on the 1st rank. Two years ago, the company from Leutkirch managed to reach place 14 in the nationwide award.
The demographic trend in Germany and, above all, the situation of almost full employment makes it difficult for the enterprises to find skilled workers and engineers and keep them in the company. Due to this fact the company decided 8 years ago to establish the strategic project „Exceptional Employer“ to improve its attraction as an employer and to strengthen the loyalty of the employees towards the company. Programs and innovations such as preventive health management, children occupation programs, bonus regulations or leadership trainings for supervisors and managers result from this project. The competition shows myonic how it is assessed as an employer and which topics of employer branding should be dealt with in the future. It also shows how the measurements realized are evaluated in the benchmark comparison.
“The fact that we received this award again and even have improved in the ranking significantly in spite of the ambitious competition makes us very proud. It is a great confirmation of our work of the last years and at the same time an incentive to continue our way – the best results can be achieved together in a positive company culture,” says myonic President Bernhard Böck. The approval rating of the survey shows that the employees share this opinion: 90% of the participants agree that „All in all this is a fantastic place to work“.
