DFS ranks among the best employers in Germany for the third consecutive year

10.04.2017.- DFS has once again ranked highly in the FOCUS Employer Ranking (2017). DFS retained its third place in the Transport & Logistics category, ranking among the 100 best employers in Germany for the third year in a row.

The ranking is based on the assessments of the company's own employees. The study is conducted each year by the rate-my-employer site Kununu, the market research institute Statista and the German newsweekly FOCUS. Two thousand companies with more than 500 employees are included in the study.

The study is broken down into different assessment categories, including working climate, potential for professional advancement, leadership style and working conditions. The compensation, benefits and family-friendly policies offered by the companies are also surveyed. Employees assess their own employer anonymously regardless of hierarchy level and age.

Dr Michael Hann, Managing Director Human Resources at DFS, sees the excellent result both as a confirmation of work done and as a motivation to do even better. He added: "The people who work at DFS are the key to the continued success of the company."
