Hennef, February 22, 2019. CONET values and strives for a high level of employee satisfaction. And current successes prove the Hennef-based company right. The IT system and consulting providers emerged this year as the nationwide winner of the "Top Job" employer competition in its category and received the corresponding seal from the hands of the former Federal Minister of Economics Wolfgang Clement on 22 February in Berlin. The "Top Job" mentor honored CONET especially for its strategic focus on securing skilled labor and the continuous development of its qualities as an employer. For CONET it is already the fourth award as a top employer in the SME sector.

With the "Top Job" quality seal, the Center for Employer Attractiveness zeag GmbH recognizes companies that make a remarkable contribution to a healthy workplace culture. This is reflected in the quality of leadership and the associated high job satisfaction within the workforce.

In the nationwide employer comparison "Top Job", which has been conducted since 2002, CONET has been particularly convincing in the areas of leadership, trust and communication. The IT service provider also leaves a strong impression in the area of work-life balance. Individually agreed working time models, for example, make it easier to reconcile work and family life; flexible working hours, home office or time off work create space for individual lifestyles. The health management system, which has been successfully established for five years, also proves that the focus of CONET is on people.

"We are very pleased with being repeatedly honored with the 'Top Job' seal, and especially that we made it to the top this year," says CONET CEO Anke Höfer. "This was and is a great confirmation of our human resources work, but above all of our corporate culture and our cooperation, because ultimately the award is based on the honest feedback of our employees." With the help of the "Top Job" analysis and the extensive feedback of the employees CONET wants to further expand its employer qualities. Only with enthusiastic and dedicated employees, the company can continue to win the race for the best minds and remain entrepreneurially successful. "Our growth will challenge us to further develop and adapt our organizational structures and human resources management so that we maintain what we value most in the face of increasing employee numbers and distributed company locations: our common, strong culture - our CONET LIFE," emphasizes Höfer.

The "Top Job" award stands for a sustainable workplace culture that is equally healthy and performance-oriented. With inspiring leadership, trusting cooperation and good working conditions, CONET creates a fertile climate for innovation and performance. "In rewarding the seal and in the suggestions that we give our participants, we pay particular attention to the preservation of a healthy workplace culture characterized by motivation and dynamism. This balance is a key factor of sustainable success and a social mission, especially against the background of increasing acceleration in business,"comments Silke Masurat, Managing Director of zeag GmbH, which organizes the employer competition.
