Hochland is one of the top employers in Germany
Hochland is one of the top employers in Germany. This is the result of a study that Focus Business has created together with the professional network Xing and the employer review portal Kununu. Hochland Deutschland GmbH with locations in Heimenkirch (Allgäu) and Schongau (Upper Bavaria) is among the 1,000 most popular national employers. In its category, the cheese manufacturer is ranked 13th and 166th in the overall ranking.
To identify the top 1,000 employers, Statista evaluated more than 127,000 employer reviews collected in an independent online survey and published in a survey of Xing members and current Kununu data. The decisive factor was whether the employees recommend their own employer. Data from the previous year have also been integrated in the evaluation. The employers in the top list are presented by Focus as "Top National Employers 2018".
For the first time, Statista has also evaluated the top 50 companies in extra categories, i.e. "Internationality", "Digital Workplace", "Working Atmosphere", "Career", "Initiative", "Further Education & Development", "Leadership Culture" and "Healthy & Fit".
Here, too, Hochland can be proud of the result: In the category "Further Education & Development", the Allgäu-based family business made it to 42th place among all the companies participating in the evaluation.
The company ranking "The Best Employers 2018" was presented in a Focus Business Special Issue, which was published on January 30th, 2018.
