Employees assess their employers. This is the principle of the Swiss Arbeitgeber Award. 80 Swiss companies with more than 100 employees, among them Garaventa, took part. Within the bounds of the study more than 31,000 employees were questioned about their satisfaction in the company. The best 30 companies were published and awarded in the Zürich Marriott Hotel on September 5, 2013.


In comparison to other companies from the same industry, Garaventa took an honourable fourth place. In comparison to all other contributing companies, Garaventa came 10th. The three categories 'Overall satisfaction with the working situation', 'Commitment towards the employer' and 'The working atmosphere' received high numbers of points by the Garaventa employees. They did even better than the Swiss average. The number of points in the category of commitment must be given special emphasis. No other company received such good grades. Teamwork and cooperation are also very important at Garaventa. In these two categories, the ropeway company takes the first place.


The Swiss Arbeitgeber Award is kind of special as it covers a broad national range of industries and the companies are assessed by their own employees. Garaventa can be proud of this result, as satisfied employees who identify themselves with the employer and are highly committed are the locomotive of any successful company.
