Osma has the "best jobs with a future"
SME lift manufacturer Osma is according to a study of the magazine Focus Money and Professor Werner Sarges of the Institute for Management Diagnostics in Barnitz one of the leading major employers in Germany.
Only every tenth of the 5000 companies surveyed received the coveted honour "Germany's best jobs with a future." The recent business development of Osma Aufzüge Albert Schenk GmbH & Co. KG can bear comparison within Germany.
As the business magazine Focus Money already reported in July, the lift manufacturer is one of the biggest employers among German companies with the best conditions for secure jobs.
"These companies obviously cannot provide a job guarantee," Focus Money wrote, but the figures of the winning companies were highly consistent.
"We welcome the award. It confirms the sustainability of our company strategy, keeping the know-how for the development and production of our own lifts and cultivating it with an eye for the future. In this way, we can react flexibly and quickly to our individual customer requirements and grow sustainably in several business fields at once, which in turn in the end has a very positive effect on the jobs offered and their consistency," according to Osma managing director, Jens Albert Schenk, who together with his father manages the company in the fourth generation.
All criteria met
As part of its investigation, Focus Money compared the development of different business figures between 2011 and 2015. During the survey period, the number of employees could not have fallen at any point.
Moreover, the annual turnover had to have been above the associated floating average and the company’s results always have been positive. Those which met all of the strict criteria without exception like Osma, could bear the prestigious title "Germany's best jobs with a future."
