Method Park certified twice by Great Place to Work®
For the second time after 2009, Method Park receives the coveted "Great Place to Work®" seal 2021. Method Park takes the 28th place in the category "Best Employer in ICT" among 100 winning companies. In the category "Bavaria's best Employers", Method Park made it to rank 15. A total of 1,034 medium-sized organizations took part in the competition.
"The excellent results in the anonymous employee survey make us highly optimistic," said Prof. Dr. Bernd Hindel, CEO of the Method Park Group, on Wednesday afternoon after receiving the award, whose presentation took place as an online award event. "Especially in exceptional situations like the Covid-19 pandemic, it is important to pull together - combined with continuous development. That's why this certification is particularly valuable to Method Park."
Respect, trust, and team spirit
"Good employers have one thing in common," says Sebastian Diefenbach, Head of Client Consulting at Great Place to Work®, "they are committed to credible, fair leadership and the active development of employees. Respect, trust, and team spirit are part of the corporate culture to a large extent."
The Method Park guiding principle is primarily characterized by its corporate structure: Flat hierarchies and short decision-making structures are part of the workplace culture; all employees are on a first-name basis with each other. A family atmosphere is just as important here as a good work-life balance. A wide range of further training opportunities is also provided.
Withstanding the shortage of skilled workers
According to a survey by Bitkom e. V., around 86,000 positions in the IT labor market remained unfilled at the end of last year - 31 percent fewer than the historic high of 124,000 from the previous year. The Covid-19 pandemic has slightly dampened the problem of the shortage of skilled workers, but the figures are still high. That's why certifications are an important component in increasing a company's attractiveness and standing out from the crowd.
The award from the worldwide operating Great Place to Work® Institute was based on an anonymous and representative survey among Method Park employees. Topics included credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and team spirit. In the second part, the culture audit, the most important facts, figures, and data were determined.
