More than 50,000 employees were surveyed in the comprehensive study by the business magazine Stern in cooperation with the market research institute Statista. The survey was conducted online and independently of employers and included numerous questions about the employee’s own company and others in the industry. However, the decisive factor for the ranking was whether employees would recommend their own employer. This was the case for DATAGROUP, which is ranked 8th among the top 35 employers in the IT and telecommunications industry.
IT is one of the industries that is particularly affected by the shortage of skilled workers. As a growing IT service provider with about 3,500 employees, DATAGROUP competes with employers from numerous industries. “Our employees are the heart of our company. We want to be more than an employer and, as a professional life partner, create an environment that offers everyone development opportunities and security in all phases of their lives. The ranking shows that we are on the right track in this respect,” explains Dr. Sabine Laukemann, Representative Director Human Resources. Across all industries, DATAGROUP even reaches 140th place out of a total of 650 among the listed companies.
“With eighth place among the top 35 in the IT industry, we were able to improve significantly compared to the previous year,” says Dr. Sabine Laukemann. “A recommendation to friends and acquaintances is the greatest compliment you can pay an employer. We are pleased that we perform so well across all industries and that our employees feel comfortable with us.”
