Awards for WAGO

Award for Successful Personnel Department

We are not only a family-owned company, we are family-friendly, and we have the awards to prove it. Interns and trainees receive high-quality educations; engineers experience an innovative environment; and all of this pays for itself – because we have been considered one of the best employers in Germany since 2013.

Best Place to Learn

In 2016, WAGO received the label of “Best place to learn” with a designation of “excellent.” Within the scope of certification by AUBI-plus GmbH, current and former trainees and trainers anonymously answered questions about topics such as selection of applicants, career-oriented learning, trainer suitability and training results. Quality criteria that were considered include integration, educational planning, feedback, training and workplace configurations, and personal development.

Employer Certified by TÜV Rheinland

WAGO’s German locations have also been certified by TÜV Rheinland as “Excellent Employers” every year since 2015. In 2017, the company received the additional acclaim of being “Parent Friendly.”

Fair Company

WAGO is numbered among the Fair Companies, which are characterized by not replacing full-time positions with interns, volunteers, trainees, or temporary help. College graduates, who have applied for a permanent position, are not misdirected toward an internship. Interns are not lured with the vague promise of a permanent position sometime in the future. WAGO offers internships primarily for professional orientation during the training phase, and pays an adequate expense allowance.

Family-Friendly Company

WAGO is committed to the compatibility of family and career. We have received the designation Family-Friendly Company from the AUSGEZEICHNET FAMILIENFREUNDLICH Initiative. The title was awarded by a joint initiative in the Minden-Lübbecke district, which included representatives from economics, management, employees, and parent organizations.

“New Work Employer 2021” and “Best Employer for Women”

WAGO has received the “New Work Employer 2021” seal from New Work SE and the Leipzig Graduate School of Management. This award honors companies that promote individual development, value transparency, recognize achievement and take a participative, flexible approach to organization and leadership.

WAGO’s commitment to equal opportunities for women has favorably impressed the employer study panel of the women’s magazine Brigitte, who have ranked it one of the best employers for women in Germany multiple times. Find more information here.

Top Employer of Engineers in Germany

Additionally, WAGO has been certified by the “Top Employers Institute” as a “Top Employer of Engineers in Germany.” The award, which WAGO has received multiple times, recognizes companies with outstanding approach to employee relations. The international survey analyzes and certifies leading employers worldwide who offer excellent working conditions.

We have also been named a top employer by the news magazine Focus for several years.
