Investing in the future

Whether in the context of the Hoffrogge Academy or through outside professionals, we see our commitment to training and further education as a worthwhile investment in the future and to achieve satisfaction of our employees. That this concept is the right way forward is also confirmed by the Chamber of Industry and Commerce, which has already honoured our company five times for "special achievements in vocational training".

Our new company building with well-lit, actively ventilated and air-conditioned rooms in a modern building with high-level information technology also contributes to high employee satisfaction. Various conference rooms and communication corners promote exchange between new and experienced colleagues at a personal level. This creates a space for creative ideas and their implementation. Our company is based in an attractive environment with the possibility of using various sports facilities. There are good connections to Bremen and Oldenburg.

Great Place to Work®

The impression that all employees are satisfied is one thing. It is another thing to have this checked independently, and that is exactly what we did at the end of 2018.

An anonymous employee survey and analysis of our corporate culture by Great Place to Work® delivered excellent results. We are very pleased about our successful participation and the great feedback from our team.

96 percent of the employees agree that they not only have a good, but a very good job. Overall, the results confirmed that employee satisfaction is well above average. In addition, the analysis provides us with valuable impulses for continuing to develop as an attractive employer
