Hamburg, 02/27/2017 | Story | Careers Olympus was certified as Top Employer 2017
Time to celebrate: Olympus was certified as Top Employer Europe & Germany, as well as one of Hamburgs Top Employers of 2017.
We received the Top Employer Europe & Germany certification!
Each year, the Top Employer Europe Institute certifies companies fulfilling numerous standards in human resource management and also offering employees optimal conditions for ongoing personal and professional development. At Olympus, we can now proudly call ourselves Top Employer Europe and Germany, for the third time running.
To receive a certification, subsidiaries from at least five countries must fulfil all Top Employer standards and each be among the Top Employers of their own country. This year, Olympus organizations in France, Italy, UK, Spain and Germany participated and received a certification.
The certification process involved several steps: first, a questionnaire was used to assess various areas of personnel management such as strategy, application of policies, communication of working conditions and employee development. Next, a Top Employer representative then validated the provided information on site. Finally, a further independent institute verified the processes and systems of the Top Employer Institute.
Among Hamburg's best employers
In recent weeks, Olympus were also honored to be one of Hamburg's best employers in 2017. The "Hamburg's Best Employers" competition is based on a survey for employees and executives to view the company as a personality. In this way concrete recommendations for our future personnel development are made visible that help us to continuously learn and develop.
