28 May 2010
These people are proud of being honoured again as one of the best workplaces in Europe: Josef Mrozek, Director Human Resources & Labor Relations 3M Deutschland, and Rudolf Söllner, Director Human Resources at 3M ESPE
Since May 19, 2010, 3M ESPE is not only considered one of the best employers in Germany, but also in Europe. At an awards celebration in Madrid, the company from Seefeld, Germany, which specializes in dental products, attained the 4th rank. It was judged together with its parent company 3M Deutschland GmbH from Neuss, Germany in the category of large scale enterprises with more than 500 employees. At the Europe-wide competition "Great Place to Work", the most attractive workplaces are identified from an employee's perspective.
"After having been highly successful in the German competition, we lined up for the European contest as a team with our German parent company and have further improved our position as compared to rank six last year" says Christin Schack, Member of the Executive Board at 3M ESPE, joyfully. In a field with 1,300 participating companies from 18 European countries, the German 3M enterprises have been able to score again at the employer benchmark study. 94 percent of the employees at 3M ESPE gave a positive answer on the central question: "All in all, I can say that this is a great place to work."
In addition, 3M Deutschland received the exceptional price "Caring for employees in times of needs".
What is particularly important is that both companies did not only participate with their management, but the attendance also concerned the departments of Research & Development, the sales representatives, different production plants as well as one large goods distribution centre.
