Our benefits for employees

Performance-related pay is a matter of course for us, as are comprehensive social benefits such as a modular company pension scheme, contributions to capital formation and regular health care campaigns.

Our awards as an employer

Extensive further training options, international networks and high quality standards have contributed to Olympus being certified as an employer by the Top Employer Institute for many years in Germany and Europe. In addition, (a portal operated by the Handelsblatt newspaper and Wirtschaftswoche news magazine) has recognized Olympus as a "Fair Company", which offers good and fair opportunities to all, including young professionals. Moreover, kununu, the largest employer assessment platform in Europe, has awarded us the exclusive "Top Company" and "Open Company" quality seals, for which only a few companies have been able to qualify.
