Awards attest to the company’s good reputation

RKW enjoys a good reputation – as a supplier to manufacturers around the world and as an employer.
Numerous awards for the family-run company attest to this fact.

RKW is one of Germany’s most attractive employers

The international career opportunities at RKW, combined with an informal environment and pleasant working atmosphere, attract graduates and experienced professionals alike. People who choose RKW often remain loyal to the company for a long time. The length of service is well above average and staff fluctuation within the entire group is low.

There is a good reason for this: In the study “Germany’s most attractive employers 2018,” RKW came second in the industry ranking. The 5,000 biggest German companies were surveyed by FAZ and IMWF. RKW fared particularly well under criteria such as quality, performance, success, and sustainability, but also when it came to corporate culture and values.

“This award attests to our strategy as an employer of combining the best of both worlds for our employees. We are globally active and are constantly creating opportunities for people to develop professionally. At the same time, as a company with a rich tradition and more than 60 years of experience, we secure long-term prospects,” says Harald Biederbick, CEO of the Board at the RKW Group, commenting on the award. Corporate values such as respect and mutual appreciation are also important for the company’s good reputation among the 3,000 employees around the world. “We have a family that is now working for us in the third generation. RKW enjoys a good reputation as an employer,” he adds from the German site in Petersaurach.

At RKW, employees get a sense from day one that we place great emphasis on respect and earn it every day.

Our working relationship is based on mutual appreciation. To us, reliability and excellent quality go without saying, just as much as the loyalty we show towards our employees.”

Awards from customers

There is not just an internal sense of the good working atmosphere and the commitment of the workforce. Our customers also appreciate our openness, our individual solutions, and our unique service, which is why they continue to give us awards. Procter & Gamble, for instance, has already presented us with the Excellence Award on several occasions. The US company counts us among its best global suppliers. Our commitment to sustainability has also been recognized. The customer Ontex Global honored the RKW Group with the “Excellence in Sustainability 2019” award. All of these awards are a good reason for us to continue to pursue our strategy and get even better! To do this, we constantly need innovative new employees – preferably for a lifetime …
