The Top Employers Institute has been auditing companies worldwide for more than 30 years with regard to their employee conditions and awards the best of them. This year, for the first time, Gerlach locations in no less than six countries were honored.
In detail, the following six countries can be pleased about this great success:
Reliability in unsteady times
The major changes in the customs sector, such as those caused by Brexit, but also the crises of recent years have proven how important it is to be able to rely on a committed team with a great sense of cohesion. Only in this way is it possible to defy all challenges and ensure the well-known service quality of Gerlach Customs now and in the future. That is why Gerlach’s top priority is to actively promote the well-being of its own employees.
Ultimately, this is the only way to be able to demonstrate top performance in day-to-day business. And: If you want to win over talented people today, you have to respond to their needs and offer them a working environment in which they can develop.
Against this background, it is no surprise that Thomas Weins, VP Customs & CEO Gerlach Germany is particularly pleased about the award: “For the first time, Gerlach Customs can be pleased about the award as Top Employer in 6 countries. This shows us that we are on the right track as a company – because I am sure that if our employees are satisfied, our work is all the better.”
