Karlsruhe, February 26, 2019. Gameforge AG is among the winners of this year’s Great Place to Work® competition for the Best Employers in Baden-Württemberg. The award, which is based on a survey of employees, represents a special commitment to creating a trusting and supportive culture of teamwork in the company. Gameforge impressed in particular with its strong team, fairness and additional benefits as well as its excellent working conditions.
The basis of the assessment was an anonymous survey of the employees at Gameforge on central workplace issues such as trust in the management, identification with the company, career development opportunities, remuneration, health promotion, and work-life balance. Additionally, the quality of staff and management efforts in the company were also evaluated. The participating Gameforge employees worked their way through an online catalog of 67 questions, submitting their opinions about their employer anonymously. Gameforge exceeded the market average in all five question categories.
Team cohesion and an open company culture
Gameforge scored particularly highly with its good team cohesion, the group activities, and the special and health-promoting additional benefits such as the healthy, free breakfasts and lunches. The fact that new colleagues are integrated directly into the team and that the work is fun were further positives. Additionally, employees were impressed by the accessibility of the management, the good workplace conditions, the work-life balance, and the fair and equal treatment.
“We are delighted with the result of the Great Place to Work® competition,” says Tomas Burck, Vice President of Customer Care and HR at Gameforge. “It is important to us that our colleagues feel comfortable at work and know that they can always rely on the team and the management staff. Furthermore, this direct feedback enables us to hone in on their needs even more in the future, and so to become an even better employer in Baden-Württemberg as we continue to grow.
