Heinz Flatnitzer, Director of Executive Board for Operations & HR at ERBER Group commented, "We are very pleased about this award. It shows the commitment of our colleagues and strong corporate culture that support our continued success and growth. An effective recruiting process is important for us, since we look to hire more than 300 staff worldwide."

In Austria, 521 companies across 34 industries were examined in what is the largest independent, scientific study in the DACH region on corporate recruiting quality.

The results point to a positive trend: the quality of recruiting has generally increased steadily over the years, although more criteria are being reviewed each year. A total of 243 individual criteria were evaluated in the Opens external link in new window2019/20 assessment.

Companies’ response to applicants is the main focus of the study. BEST RECRUITERS sends four applications to each participating firm and analyzes the speed and content of the replies.


BEST RECRUITERS was launched in Austria in 2010, in Germany in 2011, and in Switzerland in 2013. Currently  over 1,300 companies are audited annually. The 400 to 500 companies with the highest turnover and employees in each country are automatically part of the sample examined. Other employers have the option of voluntarily taking part in the study by means of an inquiry.
