Great recognition for HEROSE: In the "Hamburg's Best Employers 2015" competition, the Bad Oldesloe-based company was commended for outstanding contributions in the field of work-life balance.
Randomly selected employees at HEROSE had received a questionnaire and completed this anonymously. Their good evaluation led to the award that was handed over to HEROSE managing director, Dirk Zschalich, in Hamburg at the beginning of February.

The answers from the employees showed broad agreement with the claim that the flexible handling of the work-life balance has always been practiced at HEROSE. Whether it's because an employee's child suddenly becomes ill, or because a prolonged break from the job is requested. "There are no glossy brochures on the subject at HEROSE. We embody the idea in the form of individual solutions. And that has always been the case," says managing director Zschalich. And authorized signatory Markus Schröder adds, "Of course the work in hand always has to be done, but we are flexible when it comes to the timing."

The competition

The competition for well-qualified staff is increasing noticeably. In this competitive situation, it is becoming more and more important for companies to present themselves as attractive employers. In the light of this, Prof. Werner Sarges from the Helmut Schmidt University Hamburg, the IMWF Institute for Management and Economic Research, alster radio 106!8 and the Hamburger Abendblatt newspaper launched the annual "Hamburg's best employers" competition in 2009.
