In June 2018, REMONDIS Assets & Services was presented with a silver medal in recognition of the quality of its apprenticeship courses – an honour it may now hold for twelve months. This award came from the German Great Place to Work Institute following a two-phase survey which involved the institute reviewing the company’s culture and questioning its apprentices. The overall result took the findings of these two stages into account with both carrying equal weight.
This certificate will help set the company apart from its competitors as businesses battle to attract young talent to their firms – especially with the impending skills shortage. The company’s own apprentices had a decisive role to play here as they were asked a series of questions about their job covering subjects such as credibility, respect, fairness, pride and team spirit. According to this survey, REMONDIS’ apprentices in its A&S division particularly appreciate the expertise and support of their trainers, the great variety of tasks they can carry out at the company and the fair way the colleagues treat each other. “The feedback from our apprentices was really positive. 90% of them would recommend REMONDIS A&S as a place to do an apprenticeship,” commented Kristina Rehahn, apprenticeship manager at A&S, who was clearly pleased with the results. The second part of the survey involved a so-called culture review. Those in positions of responsibility at the company presented some facts about the firm and its business operations as well as about its apprenticeship concept. This information was then assessed by the institute. “We were actually presented with the gold medal for their culture review. We will be looking at our apprentices’ assessments in detail and then using this information to further improve our apprenticeship concept,” Kristina Rehahn continued.
A company’s credibility increases consider-ably when potential candidates see employees being allowed to assess their own workplace. In addition, each certified company can present their business on greatplacetowork.de which helps to attract suitable applicants and has a positive impact on the whole recruitment process. Something that is especially important at REMONDIS as the wide range of professions and the many different fields of business pose a particular challenge for the HR officers responsible for recruitment.
