For the first time, IWC has obtained the ‘Great PlacetoWork’ certification. The organization is active in more than 50 countries and regions around the world and understands the happiness index of its employees through anonymous structured online surveys.
In a survey conducted in the summer of 2019, employees were able to rate employers in the following categories: credibility, respect, fairness, teamwork, and pride. 86% of participants believe that they have an excellent workplace at IWC as a whole. IWC has performed particularly well in evaluating employees’ pride in the company, with 90% saying they are proud to work at IWC. Staff surveys and individual assessments of the company’s culture have also spawned new improvements, which IWC is currently implementing.
Christoph Grainger-Herr, CEO of IWC, said: ‘I’m glad that IWC’s qualifications as an employer have been confirmed. What really sets us apart is this unique group of employees who are full of love for engineering and work The enthusiasm of ‘Dare to Think and Do’, plus a little sense of humor, has shaped our company culture. ‘
IWC’s ‘Workplace Excellence Institute’ certification is the result of years of continuous investment in a progressive workplace culture. In 2018, IWC released an industry-leading sustainability report, which clearly emphasized the entrepreneur’s way of thinking, a diverse workforce, flexible working time models, and good training and development opportunities. ‘Our talent development strategy focuses on how to attract, train and retain outstanding employees from around the world to ensure that IWC has the talent and skills needed for the future,’ explains René Behr, head of the Human Resources and Sustainable Development Committee.
IWC also places great emphasis on health and well-being in the workplace. For example, the new Manufakturzentrum watchmaking center provides a good working environment for employees. The job has plenty of natural light and a special ergonomic design. Dishes in Schaffhausen’s two cafeterias include many regional and seasonal products, and fruit is also provided free of charge. Many IWC employees also volunteer to participate in environmental and social projects. (Photo / text watch home Xu Chaoyang)
