35,000 students about to take their exams took part in the Graduate Barometer carried out by trendence every year. The study focuses on students’ expectations about starting a career, careers in general, and the most attractive employers. This means that the study is the most significant employer ranking in Germany.
The Schaeffler Group is one of the most popular employers among engineering and business students.
The trendence quality audit is part of the certification „Fair Graduate Program“. This initiative campaigns for separating high-quality graduate programs from »black sheep«. The members of the initiative prove the added value of their programs with the Graduate Program Award, which is only granted after a successful certification process.
Schaeffler as an attractive employer recieves the „TOP-Company“ Sign of the valuation platform Kununu. Employees are able to vote here for topics like leadership, colleagues, equality, communication and image.
In the 2018 CLEVIS survey about internships Schaeffler has won a Star Award with above average values in employer quality and brand image. The CLEVIS survey is Germany's largest study on employer quality and brand image through internships. 5,000 interns have reported their experiences in 2018.
Also the Student Survey from Universum reveals how students perceive organizations as employers in Germany. The respective ranking from 2020 is based on the answers of about 45,000 students from 200 German universities.
As part of the MINT Minded Company Initiative, students as an academic target group propose companies that make a special effort to promote the MINT idea. Schaeffler is highly committed to the promotion of MINT talents.
