San Francisco, CA. March 2014– Meltwater, the leading provider of online intelligence solutions delivering big data insights, is pleased to announce it has earned a place amongst Germany’s top employers with its inclusion on the Great Place to Work listing.
After reviewing more than 580 companies from all sizes, industries and locations across Germany, and taking feedback from thousands of employees, the Great Place To Work, Germany announced the 2014 winners at a special award ceremony in Berlin on Tuesday, 11th March. Meltwater successfully won in all three categories was ranked at 36 on the ultimate list of Germany’s top 100 employers.
“The award represents a workplace culture, which is shaped in a special way by trust, pride and team spirit, said Frank Hauser, Managing Director of the Great Place to Work Institute Germany.
In addition to a number of characteristics key to making the 2014 list, Meltwater was selected based on its admired corporate values held through the company’s 57 offices globally. The Meltwater working culture is best known for investing in individual talent, nurturing employee growth, developing people into senior executives and building teams that are often mistaken for a group of friends, not just colleagues.
“Meltwater was founded based on a core belief in people and their potential,” comments Jorn Lyseggen, CEO and Founder of Meltwater. “People drive all that we do; without great people, our business wouldn’t be what it is today and we would not have won this amazing award. Our employees made this award a reality.”
Meltwater is proud to offer its employees a friendly, collaborative working environment, the outstanding opportunity to grow through diverse career development, the chance to work abroad and the opportunity to work with market-leading technology and innovation.
