BFFT certified as Leading Engineers’ Employer
After receiving the certification award of ‘Leading National Automotive Supplier’s Employer 2014’ for the area of the ‘the middle classes and industry’ by the FOCUS Magazine in January 2014, BFFT has now also received the certification award of a ‘Leading Engineers’ Employer’. The Top Employers Institute (previously the ‘CRF Institute’) has been granting the award for 25 years now, but only to those enterprises, which show themselves worthy by reason of their over-average good handling of their workforces.
In contrast to other certification awards, the granting of the ‘Leading Employer’ signet involves no interviewing of the workforce, but results from a fact-based transparent evaluation based on a comprehensive questionnaire. Within the scope of a subsequent audit, the human resources personnel management sphere in particular, the workplace environment and the various provisions to workforce members, are evaluated. BFFT was able above all to profile itself by providing regular events, extensive training- and advanced training courses, an operational suggestions regime for works’ improvements, and last but not least, by reason of a modern employment environment in the new headquarters opened in 2012.
In the current year, apart from BFFT, only 25 other enterprises received the coveted ‘Leading Engineers’ Employer’ signet nationwide in Germany. For the presentation of the awards, the Top Employers Institute held a celebratory Certification Dinner in Düsseldorf, Germany when the Manger, Mr. Michael Mittag was able to receive the award personally on behalf of BFFT.
