Towards the end of 2023, garden equipment manufacturer STIHL Tirol from Langkampfen was pleased to receive special accolades for its role as an employer. In the BEST RECRUITERS study 2023/24, the STIHL Group received the “silver seal” and was ranked fourth in Austria in the Industry category.
This prestigious study, which is the largest German-language study of its kind, scrutinises more than 1,200 of the largest employers in Austria, Germany and Switzerland every year. Areas analysed include response to applications, career websites and online job advertisements. Heike Scheumann, Head of Human Resources Management at STIHL Tirol, is pleased with the result: “The award means a lot to us and is confirmation that we are on the right track with our recruitment strategy. Our aim is to ensure that all our applicants – regardless of the outcome of their application – have a positive memory of STIHL Tirol.”
Service Value GmbH, an analysis institute based in Cologne, also conducted large-scale opinion surveys shortly before to determine the attractiveness of companies in Austria as perceived by the general population. The study evaluated 735 companies in terms of their image and determined “Austria’s Best Employers 2023”. STIHL Tirol was awarded a very good result and was proud to rank fifth in the overall Austrian standings. This is further confirmation that STIHL Tirol is attractive not only thanks to its products, but also as an employer.
