Focus Business: um* is top employer mid-sized sector


The unbelievable Machine Company (*um) has been recognized by Focus Business magazine as a top employer 2018. This makes us one of the best employers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland – from the employees' point of view.

In cooperation with the employer evaluation platform Kununu and the market researchers of Media Market Insights, the Focus Business editorial team has selected the top employers within the mid-sized sector (11 to 500 employees). The award is based on approximately 13,000 records with more than 324,000 German, Austrian and Swiss Kununu ratings. 

*um clearly above average 

A total of 1,300 companies made it onto the ranking list of the most popular mid-sized companies from an employee's point of view. Prerequisites for the final selection included a Kununu score of at least 4.12 of the possible five points and a minimum number of current Kununu ratings. The evaluation average, the number of evaluations and the number of employees resulted in a score for the final ranking, which can be found completely in the current Focus Business edition (available in German).

Due to the consistently best ratings (in German), *um stands out from the average in every respect.
