Wirtschaftswoche: Future Champions 2018
The uvex group is one of the future global market leaders in Germany. In cooperation with the business magazine Wirtschaftswoche, the University of St. Gallen has identified the German "Future Champions 2018". The companies had to meet strict criteria in order to be included on the list of future world market leaders. The uvex group receives the seal with 53 other companies. The following criteria had to be met: Companies must have the highest or second highest market share in their segment, annual sales must be between 5 and 50 million euros and at least 40 percent of sales must be generated abroad. Future Champions must also be active on at least three continents.
TOP National Employer
For the fifth time in a row, the uvex group is one of the best employers in Germany. In cooperation with the employer review portal kununu, every year the news magazine FOCUS determines the 1,000 best employers in Germany. These companies can then use the "Top National Employer" seal. As a manufacturer of products for the protection of people from head to toe at work, during sport or for leisure pursuits, the uvex group is particularly proud of this distinction. The company sees this as confirmation of its corporate and leadership values.
Bavarians Top 20: Successful. Family-friendly
In 2018, the uvex group was honoured with the award “Erfolgreich.Familienfreundlich” (Successful. Family-friendly), in recognition of it being among the 20 most family-friendly companies in Bavaria.
The approximately 250 working time models available at the uvex group support the individual phases of life and thus a good work-life balance. Managers are also exemplary in their compatibility, for example through part-time management. Employees with children accept the childcare offers very well during the holidays and on the day of repentance and bed. The company is preparing itself for the increasing care obligations of its employees with trained care pilots. Employees receive financial support in the form of a tax-free childcare allowance and marriage allowances, among other things. Employees on parental leave maintain regular contact with the company through a sponsorship system. Family friendliness is thus a central component of the uvex group. The very low fluctuation rate of 1.04 percent underlines this impressively.
