ModuleWorks receives national award “Best IT employers 2014“Tuesday February 11th, 2014
It’s official, ModuleWorks, the leading supplier of software components to the CAD/CAM industry has been confirmed as one of the best places to work! In a nationwide survey of IT employers across all of Germany, ModuleWorks has been recognized as one of the 50 best employers in the IT industry.
ModuleWorks is a world leading developer of CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) plug-in software components with headquarters in Aachen, Germany and three international subsidiaries. It licenses its components to other CAD/CAM software companies and academic institutions around the globe. A close analogy to the ModuleWorks business model would be the automotive industry where several different car brands may share the same engine or gearbox – ModuleWorks provides the software ‘engine’ for many different CAD/CAM software packages.
The 2nd annual survey to find “Best IT Employers 2014” was organized by Great Place To Work® in co-operation with their media partner, Computerwoche. Great Place to Work is a global research, consulting and training organization that helps businesses develop great workplaces. Its “Best Employers” series of surveys was originally commissioned by the EU Commission in 2002 and has now been running for more than a decade across different business categories in some 15 European countries.
A total of 132 companies from the IT sector in 5 different company size-related sectors participated in this benchmark study to measure quality and attractiveness of the prevailing work culture by the Great Place to Work institute.
The independent survey involved anonymous employee evaluation by ModuleWorks employees taking in major topics such as trust, identification, team spirit, career development, salary, promotion of health and work-life-balance. In addition, the quality of human resources work and management work was also evaluated.
The award reflects extraordinary performance in the fields of trusted work relationships and the creation of attractive work conditions for employees. On 10th March there will be a ceremony at CeBIT trade show Hannover where the 50 best employers will be honored and the exact ranking will also be unveiled.
“Our participation in the Great Place to Work benchmark study and the associated competition is very meaningful for us because it has provided an independent view of our company and work culture for the first time” comments Jens Beissel, Marketing Manager at ModuleWorks. “We are very happy that the respectful and appreciating nature of our work culture has been recognized by the experts at Great Place to Work and that we now carry the label “Great Place to Work”.”
