The Hotel Prinzregent near the trade fair is Top Employer 2014
For our family-run private hotel this is the first award as a top employer. The Institute for Leadership and Human Resources Management at the University of St. Gallen had previously conducted a survey of employees and personnel management. The focus was on employee satisfaction and leadership quality.
In the 'Top Job' company comparison, which has been organized since 2002, the Prinzregent Hotel was particularly convincing in the categories of motivation and dynamism. No wonder, as the hotel with a total of 50 employees scores points with its lived values, trust and security. This includes open communication and the ability to accept criticism so that improvements can be implemented quickly. The members of a core group, which today has 22 members from all departments, act as advertising ambassadors and pilots in everyday life. Hotel director Elisabeth Petermaier confirms: "Most of them have been with the hotel for many years, are multipliers for employee motivation and see themselves as entrepreneurs within the company". The familiar atmosphere with in-house values motivates especially the trainees from day one. In addition, there is a bonus system for the next generation of employees which is highly regarded within the industry. Petermaier emphasizes: "Anyone who excels with good performance in the company, at vocational school and in examinations receives attractive bonuses".
The award of the 'Top Job' seal provides additional motivation for employees in particular, as Managing Director Christian Biermann reports: "We are very enthusiastic about the success of 'Top Job', because everyone has contributed to it. We are delighted about this team effort".
In addition, the company will use the findings from the benchmarking to further develop its attractiveness as an employer. Christian Biermann: "The results of the 'Top Job' analysis are very informative for us, especially the comparison with companies in our size class. The evaluation helps us to become even better in individual areas".
