KBC is once again one of “Bavaria’s Best Employers 2023”
Munich, 26 April 2023. In the state competition “Bavaria’s Best Employers 2023”, we were once again named one of the best by Great Place to Work®. Patricia Morgenstern, Marketing & Employer Branding Manager at KBC, accepted the award today at the award ceremony in Munich.
Great Place to Work® Managing Director Andreas Schubert emphasised that the award stands for a workplace culture that is highly characterised by trust, pride and team spirit. An attractive corporate culture that promotes commitment is, among other things, a central key to mastering important tasks for the future. The Great Place to Work® jury gave special mention to the fact that great importance is attached to fair pay and that consideration is given to individual needs, e.g. with regard to religion, diet or physical impairments.
“We are very pleased that our employees have once again rated us so highly,” says Constanze Schöffmann, Director Human Resources at KBC. “In addition, the certification provides us with valuable impulses to continuously develop as an employer. The sincere interest in each individual person rather than in their work capacity and the recognition for good work and special commitment provides the basis for continuous personal and professional development. Passing on knowledge is not only a matter of course for us, but an integral part of our corporate culture,” Schöffmann continues.
We also received awards for the “Best Employer in Consulting 2023” and “Best Employer in Small Business 2023” competitions.
