KHS retains its popularity in Germany

Rolf StaabIt is the second year KHS GmbH (KHS) has been voted one of the most popular machine and systems manufacturers in Germany. This is according to a ‘best employers special’ survey published in a German-based publication, Focus magazine. The survey names the most attractive employers among medium-sized and large companies.

In the machine construction and engineering sector, KHS is named the ‘best’ company in the North Rhine-Westphalia area.

KHS also gained third place among the industry’s big corporations. The company was among the top five in the overall ranking of all German machine and systems manufacturers over the last year.

Together with its cooperative partners Statista and Kununu, Focus pinpointed German companies where employees were especially satisfied with their job in 2016.

Among other factors, the rating is based on assessments with personnel inside and outside the company.

Rolf Staab, head of the central human resources division at KHS, considers the renewed accolade to be proof of a constantly high level of employee satisfaction.

‘We’re continuing to work towards creating the best possible working conditions. The basic tools we apply in this respect include our multidisciplinary trainee programs and extremely extensive range of courses of basic and further training,’ he concludes.
