Friedhelm Loh Group: “Top German Employer” for eleven years
2019-05-24. The Friedhelm Loh Group has again been named one of Germany’s leading employers. The Top Employers Institute has awarded this accolade to the family-owned and -operated business for now the eleventh time in a row.
The Friedhelm Loh Group has especially based its evolution as an innovation driver and global player on the skills of its employees and their further development. These efforts have again reaped rewards: for the eleventh year in a row, the Top Employers Institute has named the Group one of Germany’s best employers.
“We are proud to have been named a top employer again”, said Andreas Huck, Managing Director Controlling, Finance, IT and HR in the Friedhelm Loh Group: “We have no intention of stopping here. All executives are still required to optimise the framework for top performance, in which space will be created, in which employees can develop at both a professional and personal level.”
Since 1991, the Top Employers Institute has been honouring exemplary employers worldwide who continuously work to improve the employee environment.
A focus on continued development
With its own training facility, the Loh Academy, the Group is investing in further training and ongoing skills development projects. For example, it is accompanying the digital transformation of working processes in the manufacturing environment. Employees learn there how people, machines and digital processes are integrated in accordance with Industry 4.0.
The Loh Academy is also focused on developing the next generation of workers. It is supervising both young people undergoing apprenticeships within the Group and students on the StudiumPlus programme offered jointly by the Friedhelm Loh Group and the Central Hesse University of Applied Sciences (THM).
Given increasing connectivity within the working world, ongoing development will remain a key task in the years ahead. “Decisions are always also taken with a view to the long-term future in family-owned and -operated business like the Friedhelm Loh Group. Innovation, investment and ongoing employee training will help us consolidate our technological lead”, said Huck.
