A Good Employer for Women

Würth Elektronik again at the top in company comparison study

Würth Elektronik eiSos is once again performing well in the Brigitte employer study. With an overall score of 4 out of a possible 5 points, the manufacturer of electronic and electromechanical components is among the leaders of the 292 companies taking part. The Germany-wide study "The best companies for women" by Brigitte magazine and the employer branding agency Territory Embrace, has evaluated how the companies perform on the following topics: work-life balance, work flexibility, career development measures, the importance of transparency and equality, and the proportion of women in management positions.

"The study helps us identify potential for further development, such as getting more women into management positions. We are proud of the good results. We were particularly pleased with the positive development in the area of 'work flexibility'. The possibility of being able to work from home and at flexible times has been available in our company for a long time, but we have all learned a lot during Corona and now implement it more actively than before," says Tanja Hochschild, Managing Director at Würth Elektronik eiSos. Hochschild is one of the initiators of the equal opportunities initiative "WoMen - WE lead together". Its guiding principle is that employees of all genders should work together at all management levels to lead Würth Elektronik successfully into the future.
