Baden-Baden, June 21, 2023: Well-deserved recognition for excellent working conditions: GRENKE AG, global financing partner for small and medium-sized enterprises, has been certified and awarded the "Top Employer 2023" seal by The Top Employers Institute for the first time. Companies that are certified as "Top Employer" place their employees at the core of their business activities and offer them an outstanding working and development environment.

"This seal makes it publicly visible that GRENKE focuses on its employees. They make us what we are, namely a successful and future-oriented company that people enjoy working for, and for good reason," says CEO Dr Sebastian Hirsch. The "Top Employer" certificate is "an award for all of us".

The Top Employers Institute examines companies based on their statements in the HR Best Practices Questionnaire. It comprises six overarching HR dimensions and 20 HR areas such as People Strategy, Work Environment, Talent Acquisition, Learning, Wellbeing and Diversity & Inclusion.

Following certification, GRENKE can now call itself "Top Employer Germany" - as proof of outstanding work in the area of Human Resources.

The Top Employers Institute is the global institution for the certification of outstanding employee conditions. The certification programme enables companies to evaluate and improve their employee conditions. Founded 30 years ago, the Top Employers Institute has awarded more than 2,050 "Top Employers" in 121 countries and regions on five continents this year.

With the "Top Employer" seal, GRENKE in Germany stands alongside Volkswagen AG, Deutsche Post AG, Audi AG, Mercedes-Benz Consulting GmbH, Puma, Rewe Group, Lidl, SAP, American Express and Metro AG.
