h2 The German Institute for Quality Standards and Testing e.V.

The German Institute for Quality Standards and Testing e.V. (DIQP) is a non-profit institute that specializes in the quality assessment of companies and educational institutions.

What is the Top Employer quality seal?

The Top Employer seal is awarded to companies and organizations that are distinguished by outstanding performance and exemplary practices in personnel management, employee development and employee satisfaction. The Top Employer Seal signals to potential applicants and the public that the company is an attractive employer that cares about the well-being of its employees and offers a positive working environment. Companies that receive the employer seal can use this as a certificate of quality and a competitive advantage to attract talent and strengthen their company's image.

Criteria for the Top Employer Seal

The company is assessed in 2 steps: an employee survey and an HR interview. The results of both areas are calculated equally for the overall grade. The following areas are taken into account:

  • Employee satisfaction
  • Employee motivation
  • Recommendation
  • Work organization
  • Attractiveness as an employer
  • Personnel support
  • Personnel development

The employee survey

As part of the audit, the DIQP carries out a “representative survey among employees” which is representative and determines employee satisfaction and the willingness to recommend the company. This survey is conducted online or offline and includes all employees working in the company, including trainees.

Participation in the survey is voluntary and if the company tries to influence the employees' response behavior, the entire test is considered failed.

The questionnaire also contains questions that are irrelevant to the assessment and can be tailored to the company. They serve as feedback for the employer in order to get a clear picture of the satisfaction of its employees.

The HR interview

The HR interview for the Top Employer Award focuses primarily on employer performance. Various aspects such as work processes, personnel development, employee management and family orientation are assessed and account for 50% of the overall assessment.

This includes an interview with a representative of the HR department to understand their view of the employer's performance. The assessment is based on points, with a total of 100 points being possible. The information is verified by the certification company SQC-QualityCert through internet research and document review to ensure that the information is correct.
