Awarded: KNAUER among the top one percent of employers in Germany

In the study "Leading Employers Germany 2019", the Berlin-based manufacturer of high-tech laboratory measuring instruments KNAUER was ranked as one of the best employers for the second time.

This makes KNAUER one of the companies with the best ratings in an independent meta-study conducted by Düsseldorf-based

According to the publishers of the study, it is based on the currently most comprehensive employer evaluation system in Germany, which has evaluated the data of more than 70,000 companies. Criteria included previous and current, independent employer certifications, rankings and awards, employee satisfaction ratings, student surveys, as well as activities in the areas of CSR, diversity and family friendliness.

“We are very pleased to have made it among the top one percent of employers this year. This award confirms that we are on the right track with respect to our human resources strategy and our activities for sustainability and social responsibility," says Alexandra Knauer.

Last year, the KNAUER CEO bought a holiday apartment in a newly-built holiday complex in a prime location in Ahlbeck on Usedom island (Baltic Sea). The employees can book this beach residence at low prices and spend relaxing days there. The employees are thrilled. If employees want to buy a new bicycle (a so-called business bike), KNAUER provides financial support. In addition, there are a number of health-promoting activities on a regular basis, such as salad days, cycling courses and morning yoga. Employees have been participating in the company's profits for years.
