Voith is a TOP Employer
Voith has been among Germany's TOP Employers in the target group "Junior Engineers".
We are a Top Employer
In its study "Absolventenbarometer (Graduate Barometer)", Europe's leading research institution Trendence asks 30 000 students every year about their job and career expectations, and which companies they regard as Germany's most attractive employers. Voith is among the most popular and sought-after employers among engineering students and ranked in 68th place in 2016.
The Swedish market research institute Universum also publishes an annual list of the 100 most attractive employers in Germany, based on a survey of 24 000 students at 107 German universities. In 2016, Voith occupied place 74.
Every year, Absolventa.de and Praktikum.info carry out a survey of over 5500 trainees. Here, Voith received the highest marks and is therefore one of the "stars". The basis of this accolade are the anonymous replies from the Voith trainees.
GettingHired is a social networking community and job portal for American job seekers living with disabilities. Although these individuals are qualified and capable workers, they are disproportionately under-employed or unemployed.
The new employer signet "Unterstützer des studentischen Ehrenamtes" (Supporter of Students' Honorary Offices) identifies employers, which, by supporting the project "Engagier Dich" (Get Involved), show that they have recognized the relevance of students' honorary offices and that the promotion and the support of these activities are important to them. With our corporate statement we lend a potent voice to the voluntary engagement of students and, through our participation, we help to make this project possible.
We are a Fair Company
Voith is committed to the "Fair Company" principles. The certificate „Fair Company“ is awarded to companies who speak out against the exploitation of trainees and adhere to the specified "Fair Company Rules." Voith ensures fair working conditions for first jobbers and students, for example by offering adequate remuneration and never filling full-time jobs with trainees or apprentices.
