Attractive for Engineers and College Graduates

K+S Receives Award for Outstanding Career Opportunities

The German magazines Focus and Focus Money have awarded K+S two Deutschlandtest seals of approval for outstanding career opportunities for college graduates and engineers.

“Being awarded these titles once again shows that our Company is an attractive employer especially for college graduates and engineers that offers positive prospects for the future,” said Dr. Thomas Nöcker, Board Member with responsibility for personnel affairs at K+S Aktiengesellschaft.

Deutschlandtest conducted two large-scale studies into which companies offer college graduates and engineers the best career opportunities in Germany. What emerged from them was that for most of the people polled, salary levels are no longer the key criterion in choosing an employer nowadays. People look for companies offering attractive career development opportunities, jobs that are family-friendly, fair prospects for women and job security. These were the very expectations that K+S scored well on, making it a winner in its sector.

The two studies, which focused on the 5,000 companies in Germany with the largest numbers of employees, were conducted with the support of Prof. Werner Sarges, PhD, of the Institute of Management Diagnostics at Barnitz near Hamburg.
