Gameforge Again Certified as ‘Attractive Employer’

Karlsruhe game publisher recognized as a Great Place To Work® / Excellent work-life balance with hybrid working model / Outstanding team spirit

KARLSRUHE, Germany, Aug. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gameforge AG has once again been certified as an ‘attractive employer’ by Great Place to Work®. The award signifies the company’s trustworthy and even-handed leadership, as well as how it actively fosters and encourages its employees. Supporting a good work-life balance, excellent team spirit, and a diverse working environment count among Gameforge’s strengths.

The basis of the assessment was an anonymous survey of Gameforge’s employees on central workplace issues, such as trust in the management, identification with the company, career development opportunities, remuneration, health promotion, and work-life balance. Participating employees worked their way through an online catalogue of 65 questions, submitting their opinions about their employer anonymously. Additionally, the quality of staff and management efforts in the company were also evaluated. The results of the two internationally proven survey methods (Great Place To Work® employee survey and culture audit) showed Gameforge having an above-average rating in comparison to other companies.

Hybrid Working Model for an Excellent Work-Life Balance

Gameforge scored particularly highly in promoting a good work-life balance, having a strong sense of cooperation in the team, celebrating results together, and providing measures for promoting good health. “We’re extremely pleased that our employees rated us so highly in this anonymous survey,” said Tom Burck, Chief Officer Customers & HR. “In particular, the level of satisfaction in terms of work-life balance and team spirit show that our transformation to a hybrid company has been a success, and that our employees still feel they’re part of a team even though they no longer come into the office every day.”

Gameforge is a software company with a hybrid working model. Employees can be flexible in deciding which days they work from home, and which days they work from the company’s headquarters in Karlsruhe’s Technologiepark, simply by talking to their managers.

An International Environment with a Welcoming Culture

Another area where the company scored particularly highly in the survey was how new colleagues immediately feel themselves at home, irrespective of their gender, age, sexual orientation or ethnic background. “Our workforce come from over 35 countries. We’re extremely proud of that diversity, and how everyone is welcome and feels at home,” says Anett Graf, Head of Human Resources. “With our company accommodation, a relocation agency, language courses, and a comprehensive onboarding program, we do everything we can to help new colleagues settle in. And the number of events we organize ensures that it’s easy for people to get to know other members of the team beyond their own departments and hierarchies.”
