For several years the news magazine FOCUS, together with the web portals XING and kununu, has carried out an evaluation of employers now. These surveys in combination with the evaluation of the results of the platform kununu lead to clear general and sector specific rankings.
LEONHARD WEISS also uses these various evaluation portals, derives many details about the own company by exactly analysing them and puts together a comprehensive opinion trend. The family-owned company even motivates our employees to give their honest evaluation of the family-owned company.
Satisfaction at the job - everybody knows it from his or her own experience - is good, not only for our emotional well-being. Demotivated employees, many institutes have projected this, cost the company enormous sums of money. It is thus really in the interest of LEONHARD WEISS as employer to create a working atmosphere in which our employees feel comfortable.
Is that difficult? “It is certainly not easy“, says Alexander Weiss, Managing Director for personnel and communication. “But in the year 1989 we have developed a mission statement together with our employees, describing our values and our behaviour towards each other. That makes it much easier“!
The family-owned company in Baden-Württemberg definitely does something correctly. For the eighths time in a row, LEONHARD WEISS has been ranked as one of the TOP-employers in the construction industry (rank 2). In the overall ranking, the company with its headquarters in Göppingen/Satteldorf ranks 48th across all industries in Germany in 2020.
