GEZE is one of Germany's best employers

GEZE has been awarded the Top Employer seal of approval for the fifth time. The award means the specialist in door, window and safety technology is one of Germany's best employers. This seal of approval recognises companies that demonstrate exceptional personnel management and provide outstanding services for their staff.

Employees come first

The results of the detailed study confirm that GEZE has an outstanding employee environment. Its staff enjoy taking on responsible tasks and interesting perspectives in an innovative, internationally characterised environment - combined with the advantages of a medium-sized family business. This includes flat hierarchies and short decision paths, development possibilities, an above-average performance-related compensation and company pension scheme, employment security, a good work/life balance as well as an open company culture.

We focus on the employee. We place great emphasis on training and further developing our staff, including fostering individual skills. It was only with our employees' ideas and commitment that we were successfully able to enter the building automation market in past years. We continue to drive digital networking in building management systems further forward – with one goal: the development of buildings worth living in.

Individual support

GEZE provides even its junior staff with various forms of support. For example, one big benefit are the periods spent abroad for "International Business" students. Tim Ramsayer is completing a dual study programme in industrial engineering with GEZE, and has carried out a competitor analysis for electric strikes in the Spanish market.

I did my preparation here in Leonberg within the specialist department, and got in touch with colleagues in Barcelona who were really accommodating. Everyone at GEZE Iberia speaks English. During my benchmarking project, I had access to everyone, received full support whatever questions I had, and gained insights into how the Spanish work.
