myonic received an award as one of the best employers in Germany 2018 in the famous Great Place to Work® competition “Germany`s Best Employers 2018”!

In the middle of March 2018 the 100 best employers in Germany were announced in the Berlin event location Kosmos; myonic came in 14th in the category „251 - 500 employees“.
Those companies were awarded which had an especially reliable, beneficial and attractive workplace culture from the point of view of the employees. Before the competition workplace criteria such as trust, identification, team spirit, professional development, remuneration, health promotion and work-life-balance were investigated by the independent Great Place to Work ® Institute. Basis for the evaluation was a detailed and company-wide staff survey about their experience with the workplace culture (2/3 of the assessment) as well as a management survey concerning the measurements taken in human resources (1/3 of the assessment).

In total 740 German companies took part in the current benchmark survey. They subjected themselves to an independent examination by the Institute; 100 of them were awarded within the competition „Best Employer 2018 in Germany“ with the Great Place to Work ® quality seal in 6 categories subject to the ranking lists.

myonic has participated in this competition for several years in order to continually check its workplace culture and take measures resulting thereof. The efforts are worthwhile: In 2014 and 2016 myonic was among the top five employers in the regional competition “Best Employers in the Allgaeu”. Two years ago, the company from Leutkirch managed for the first time to reach place 54 in the nationwide award.

“The fact that we received this award again and even have improved in the ranking significantly in spite of the ambitious competition makes us very proud. It is a great confirmation of our work of the last years and at the same time an incentive to continue our way – the best results can be achieved together in a positive company culture,” says myonic President Bernhard Böck.

The approval rating of the survey shows that the employees share this opinion: 91% of the participants agree that „All in all this is a fantastic place to work“.

Christmas Card Painting Activity

The debut: This year the Christmas cards to our customers and partners will be decorated with pictures painted by the children of our employees. 19 kids between 4 and 13 painted their most beautiful winter and Christmas motives for us at the end of August despite the late summer heat. The jury had the agony of choice - but finally 3 pictures for the folded card were chosen. The picture of a "Christmas winter wonderland" by Sarah Schlindwein was awarded first prize and decorates the front page, the creative pictures of the 4-year old Charlotte Riedle and the 8-year old Ronja Gegenbauer decorate the rear page.

On the occasion of the myonic Kids Day on 3 November 2017 the small artists were awarded. The 3 winners got super vouchers for leisure activities and all other participants who took part in the painting activity could take home a small game as a consolation prize.
