Dürr scored particularly well in the categories of remuneration system, innovation management, corporate culture and work-life balance. The MDAX-listed company achieved top marks in all four areas. In the remuneration system category, which covers, e.g., salary structure and transparency as well as pension benefits, Dürr attained the highest score of all 22 finalists. Dürr also performed very well in the other categories – career opportunities as well as training and development.
Ralf W. Dieter, CEO of Dürr AG: “This renewed recognition shows that our sustainable personnel policy is successful. As a technology company, we need highly qualified staff with an interest in innovation, entrepreneurship and customer orientation. In return, we must offer the right incentives, career prospects and scope for development. We can only defend and build on our leading market positions worldwide if we are also a top employer.”
