ALTANA’s recruitment achieved an outstanding result in the Germany-wide Career’s Best Recruiters employer study.
We not only finished in first place in the chemical industry, but also in the employer ranking, receiving 89 out of 100 points.

In the study, Koblenz University of Applied Sciences for Human Resources and Education examined the recruitment qualities of 500 renowned employers in Germany. Among other things, scientists analyzed the companies’ job ads as well as the online activities on the website and in the social media. In addition, they evaluated the feedback the applicants received with the help of test applications.

In the annual study conducted by the market research company Potentialpark, we improved considerably. In the Potentialpark OTaC ranking in 2015, ALTANA finished in 16th place (previous year: 27th place). In this ranking, more than a thousand students and university graduates in Germany evaluated the online activities of their employer.

In the U.S., our company ELANTAS PDG was voted the top employer in the St. Louis area for the third time. Every year, the daily newspaper St. Louis Post-Dispatch invites employees of the region’s 100 largest companies to take part in the competition. A key evaluation criterion, apart from career possibilities and the performance of the company as an employer, is the businesses’ social commitment in the region.
