Great people make a great place to work

adesso is once again the best employer in germany

A double again! After the double victory in the cross-industry competition of Great Place to Work ® and the industry ranking ICT in 2020, we can defend the title also in our renewed participation. This year, adesso is once again at the top of the winner's podium, taking first place in both the "ICT" industry ranking and the cross-industry competition. adesso is Germany's best employer in our size category (over 5,000 employees).

96 % confirm that they can "be themselves" at adesso

95 % appreciate that all adessi are pulling in the same direction

100 % of the adessi feel they are treated fairly regardless of nationality or ethnic origin

In the industry ranking of information and telecommunication technology (ICT), which is important for us, adesso took first place for the fourth time in 2023 and can celebrate the top position in the largest ICT size category (over 2,000 employees). A total of 1,146 companies took part in the competition organised by the independent institute Great Place to Work ®, 274 of which are included in the ITC sector ranking.

Since our last participation in the competition in 2020, we have been able to further improve our already very good scores in the anonymous employee survey in the categories of trust, respect, fairness, pride and team spirit. We are very pleased with this result, because it shows that we are creating a long-term working environment in which our employees feel comfortable.

Iron shirts yourself? Not at adesso!
