An independent study conducted by Koblenz University of Applied Sciences for Human Resources and Education in cooperation with the Vienna-based communications agency GPK shows how good our recruiting is. ALTANA finished in first place in the rating of chemical companies and was rated as one of the top ten employers in Germany. We are particularly proud of this award, as the tests and analyses for the study were carried out anonymously and without our prior knowledge. In their summary, the authors of the Career’s Best Recruiters study extolled the swift and efficient application process at ALTANA as well as the company’s appreciative, fair, and open dealings with applicants.
For the study, the scientists not only examine the company’s online job ads and online presence, including its career pages and activities in the social web. They also test the employers’ online recruiting: How do they react to unsolicited applications and what is the personal contact with the applicants like? The test applicants are expressly asked to provide feedback with their impressions of the contact with the employer.
