MMM has again been named "top medium-sized employer 2020" by Yourfirm.de, the leading online job exchange for medium-sized businesses in German-speaking countries. The aim of the award is to focus on the advantages of medium-sized employers for job seekers and to provide them with orientation in their search for interesting employers in SMEs.
What is special about this award is that it is not based on surveys, which often have low participation rates and therefore only a limited meaningful database. Instead, the access and reading behaviour of users at www.yourfirm.de is evaluated on more than 60,000 job advertisements within one year.
Evaluation criteria are
- the average number of users a company reaches per job advertisement and company profile,
- the percentage of users who actually read the content, i.e. spend a corresponding amount of time on the page
- as well as the proportion of readers who carry out an application-related action, e.g. by clicking on "apply now" or the company's website link.
Based on these three categories, a "popularity index" is calculated for each employer. The 1,000 best-rated companies receive the "top employer in SMEs 2020" seal of approval.
Yourfirm founder and managing director Dirk Kümmerle: "Medium-sized companies are attractive employers and need not fear comparison with supposedly overpowering large corporations. Short decision making processes, fast promotion opportunities, a family and appreciative environment as well as diverse tasks are only some of the reasons that make jobs in medium-sized companies attractive for applicants. Especially in challenging times like the ones we are currently experiencing, it is important to confidently emphasize these strengths when looking for personnel. Our seal is a helpful quality feature for attractive employers in medium-sized businesses.
