SCHURTER receives the “Great Place to Start” award
SCHURTER AG is honoured with the “Great Place to Start” award as one of the best training companies in Switzerland in 2018.
The award recognizes companies with an exemplary workplace culture for apprentices. Companies of all industries and sizes participate in the benchmark survey on the quality and attractiveness of workplace culture and undergo an independent examination by the Great Place to Work® Institute.
The evaluation was based on an anonymous survey of SCHURTER AG apprentices. The report from Great Place to Work® concluded that learners at SCHURTER feel a high degree of trust, pride and pleasure in their work. In addition to the variety of measures, the originality and creativity of the design of apprenticeship training were also taken into account.
