apollon is in the top league of the best ITC employers in Germany
Great Place to Work®: apollon receives additional award "Best employer in ITC 2020
apollon, leading software provider for marketing automation and product data communication, can be doubly pleased. After the Pforzheim-based software company was named one of the “Best Employers in Baden-Württemberg 2020” by Great Place to Work® on 12.03.2020, another nationwide award was added on 24.03.2020: “Best Employers in ITC 2020”. The ITC Award is aimed specifically at companies in the information and communication technology (ITC) sector and recognises good and attractive working conditions. This means that apollon can book two awards in its first participation in the competition.
Norbert Weckerle, CEO of apollon: “The ITC industry is one of the highly innovative sectors and the central driver of digitization. Although the effects of the corona virus can also be felt in the ITC, the industry will continue to grow. ITC is a pioneer and is already making new, digitized jobs possible from virtually anywhere. All the more so, and in view of the shortage of skilled workers, it is essential to have an attractive work culture – both for current and future employees. We, as a software company, are therefore very proud of this industry-specific award and feel strengthened a second time as an attractive employer. At this point I would like to take the opportunity to thank my colleagues once again!
For the eighth time, Great Place to Work® and its partners have organized the competition “Best Employers in ICT”. Partners of the Great Place to Work® industry initiative and the competition, which was launched in 2013, are the digital association Bitkom, the trade magazine “Computerwoche” and the IT portal “ChannelPartner”.
