KBC again receives Great Place to Work® award “Best Employers in Consulting 2023”
With fifth place, we are once again among the best in this year’s Great Place to Work® competition “Best Employers in Consulting 2023”. According to Great Place to Work®, good employers have one thing in common: they are committed to credible, fair leadership and the active promotion of employees. Respect, trust and team spirit are part of the corporate culture to a large extent.
In this year’s survey, the Great Place to Work® jury particularly emphasised the regular mentoring talks and the team rounds that take place every fortnight and thus promote a regular exchange within the team.
“Our special corporate culture thrives on trust and appreciation. We attach particular importance to working together as a team and dealing with each other in a friendly manner. As managers, we set a good example here. Our team spirit is characterised by helpfulness and cohesion,” summarises Stefan Kemény, Managing Director and Senior Partner of KBC. This was confirmed by the recent survey among the employees in the context of the team workshop on the “Continuous Improvement Process” (CIP), which takes place twice a year.
We were also awarded ninth place for the “Best Employer in Small Medium-Sized Businesses 2023” competition. The placement for the “Bavaria’s Best Employers 2023” award will be announced at the awards ceremony on 26 April.
