Having being crowned with the title of Reliable Employer 2018-2019, WTS Klient Hungary has now been awarded the title of Reliable Employer 2020-2021 by the German-Hungarian Chamber of Industry and Commerce. Eighteen of the roughly 900 members of the chamber received the title for these two years.
Given the state of emergency declared on 11 March 2020 in Hungary, this year the German-Hungarian Chamber of Industry and Commerce announced the companies winning the Reliable Employer title at an online Member’s Meeting. The title is awarded by the jury to companies that are exemplary in looking after their employees’ working and living conditions., i.e. those which comply with the conditions set forth by a professional committee for working and social conditions.
Applicants for the title must detail their corporate practices and the underlying guidelines in seven areas: remuneration, social and welfare benefits, health and working conditions, training and further education, and development opportunities. Tamás Steványik, spokesperson of the jury and HR director of ELMŰ-Émász Nyrt., stressed at the Members’ Meeting that receiving this title requires continuous care and attention from companies since the honour is only valid for two years, and companies need to prove themselves again thereafter. The list of this years’ awardees comprised several companies – including WTS Klient Hungary – who successfully applied for the title for a second time.
Members of the German-Hungarian Chamber of Industry and Commerce with registered offices in Hungary have been able to apply for the title of “Reliable Employer” on a continuous basis since 2017.
