That is impressive! The gaming company Merkur, which belongs to the Gauselmann Group, has every reason to celebrate again in 2019. Because for the fifth time in a row, the company belonging to the “Spielbetriebe” division was able to secure a place among USA’s 1,000 best employers. This list is compiled by the Focus Business Magazine, which distinguishes the most popular employers from 22 different industries every year. For Merkur, the award remains something special, but it does not come as a surprise.
The only gaming company under USA’s top worker
Mercury is a well -known name in USA itself among those people who don’t have too much to do with casinos and casinos. Because of course, the symbol with the radiant sun knows almost everyone, even if he or she still have no experience with the versatile gambling offers from Merkur has made.
But that there is more behind Merkur – and even more than the illustrious name Gauselmann – the dazzling American company proves this year after year through a not so unimportant award. Because this year Merkur is allowed again as “Top national employer” Designation, an award that is awarded by the Focus annually.
The special thing about this award, which is already a considerable honor in itself, is the fact that no other company from the gambling industry is represented in the FOCUS list. Merkur as a company of the Gauselmann Group is the only one in USA’s most popular employers belonging to the gaming industry. Even with company founder Paul Gauselmann, joy comes up.
“It is not only the award itself that makes me so proud, but also the fact that we are the only company in the industry. The high satisfaction of the employees with ‘their ’employer Merkur Casino is clearly evident in the fifth year in a row, and I am very happy.”– Paul Gauselmann, company founder and CEO
Mercury of employees rated with “very good”
In general, many gambling companies usually enjoy a bad reputation. However, companies in the gaming industry, which sometimes generate billions in sales and act in an international market, can only be successful under professional leadership is often forgotten. In addition, Merkur is not a small employer and therefore overall Especially economically, a flagship companybut how well a company as an employer actually is, ultimately decide the people who make it possible for a company to be fictional as such as a legal person, act and act economically at all. but how well a company as an employer actually is, ultimately decide the people who make it possible for a company to be fictional as such as a legal person, act and act economically at allbut how well a company as an employer actually is, ultimately decide the people who make it possible for a company to be fictional as such as a legal person, act and act economically at all. In Mercury, employee satisfaction seems to be particularly high.
Because when putting together USA’s best employers, real Employee reviews of Merkur on the Kununu portal Considered on which employees can rate their own employer in different categories. With currently 85 “very good” ratings of 177 votes cast, this statement does not seem to be completely out of air.
Mercury more than just an ordinary employer
But how can this almost incomparable employee satisfaction be explained by such a large company like Merkur? There are probably several correct answers to this. On the one hand, the fact should certainly be called that Mercury trains himself and that the workers of tomorrow are approaching in their own home. Whether training as a machine specialist or IHK training as a specialist for casino service, At Merkur, high value is placed on qualified staff.
But the soft factors also seem attractive. In 2018, for example, Merkur organized a grill event under the name “Ahoi by Merkur” exclusively for his own employees. Merkur employees were allowed to try grilling on ships under bright sunshine together with professional chefs. Also other Events organized by the Merkur employer for employees take place again and again in the year and certainly contribute to employee satisfaction.
”In addition to good training and further education, the compatibility of family and work also takes great importance in today’s working world. At Casino Merkur-Spielothek there is therefore flexible working time models and the possibility of working part-time-offers that are particularly popular by mothers. ”– Dieter Kuhlmann, board member for the playing company division at the Gauselmann Group
The company’s own training location certainly also has quite insignificant part in the good ratings. In 2010 Gauselmann acquired that Benkhausen Castle, which is now used as an internal training center. Learning and training where others go on vacation is probably the motto, which other employees in USA can often only dream of even among larger employers. Overall, the award from Merkur seems anything but surprising.
