District Administrator Eva Irrgang awards seal of approval to Humpert as a "Family-friendly company in the Soest district"
On Wednesday, 03 July 2019, District Administrator Eva Irrgang presented Wilhelm Humpert GmbH & Co. KG from Wickede (Ruhr) with the significant certification of "Family-friendly company in the Soest district".
Eleven companies from the Soest district received the seal of approval for the first time. Irrespective of industry affiliation and company size, they have all created initial opportunities which make it easier for their employees to strike a balance between work and family life.
In order to receive the prestigious certificate, Humpert first had to undergo an extensive audit and present itself to a jury of 10 experts. The expert jury had to be fully convinced of the company's sustained family friendliness.
The aim of this important certificate with the corresponding logo is to help support the company's external image as a family-friendly company, and accordingly to highlight a further positive aspect in the recruitment of new employees. At the same time, the internal presentation is also particularly important in order to actively support staff in achieving a better work/family balance.
"With the presentation of the company as particularly family-friendly, in conjunction with the positive description of our HQ in Wickede (Ruhr) and all its advantages in the regional environment, we aim to counteract the existing shortage of skilled workers and fill the exciting jobs associated with the ergotec brand" says company CEO Willi Humpert.
On the part of Humpert Maja Grothe, Assistant to the Management Board, and Martina Schäfers, Head of Human Resources and member of the Works Council, received the certificate from the District Administrator.
