Tübingen – For many staff members of CHT R. Beitlich GmbH it has been evident for a long time that their employer is among the best in Germany. It is not without reason that the identification with the company and the staff loyalty at the chemical specialty company in Tübingen are very high. Now, the qualities of CHT as an employer were awarded with the "Top Job" label. Mr. Wolfgang Clement, the "Top Job" mentor, awarded the Swabian company at the German summit of medium-sized companies on 26th June in Essen. Before this awarding the Human Resources management of CHT R. Beitlich GmbH had been thoroughly checked by Prof. Dr. Heike Bruch and her team from the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland.
They interviewed staff and HR managers at all the German sites of CHT. The competition and interviews of the Institute for Management and Human Resources management of the University of St. Gallen focused on the methods and instruments of personal management applied in Tübingen.
On the whole, CHT R. Beitlich GmbH could achieve very positive results in all the fields.
Mr. Jan Siebert, Commercial Director at CHT R. Beitlich GmbH, admits "We are of course especially pleased to be awarded this honour because the award confirms our value-orientated company policy and long-term staff policy. However, the vast analysis gives us the opportunity for a further optimisation of our quality as employer. To us, committed, qualified and motivated employees are a guarantee for our success."
The vast analysis is now being evaluated at the headquarters in Tübingen and then implemented into measurements. "We need staff who identify with the company, its policy as well as its targets. Therefore, we want to expand our strengths and deal with topics where we see further development potential", says Mr. Peter Hepper, Head of Human Resources at CHT R. Beitlich GmbH. "In the future, we aim at convincing highly qualified applicants to join our company."
The works council at CHT was also highly delighted by the award. "A permanent success can only be achieved by a good and motivated staff." states Mr. Michael Wellhäußer, Head of the CHT works council, "The right decisions must be made but it is equally important to repeatedly check intermediate steps and results. The awarding with the Top Job label shows that we are on the right track. The analysis provides approaches for further optimization."
General pictures of the prize awarding will be available as of 27th June in the press area of www.topjob.de.
