For the first time in its company history, the owner-managed agency CUBE brand communications from Ingolstadt, founded in 2018, was awarded for its employee-oriented management. This is the result of the ranking of FOCUS-Business together with the employer evaluation platform Kununu.
Since the start of operations in January 2018, the internationally operating agency CUBE brand communications has set itself the goal of offering its employees an above-average positive working environment. Clearly defined management guidelines and attractive employee benefits are an essential part of the company strategy. "Our first agency award is something very special. The award is confirmation of the employee orientation that has been firmly anchored in our agency since day one," says Managing Director and co-owner Dr. Michael Schilhaneck, who is delighted with the award and is certain: "As an agency for brand communications, it is our task to inspire our customers. We can only achieve this if our own employees are inspired.”
The Ingolstadt-based company places particular emphasis on a joint, cross-team cooperation, mutual appreciation of managers and team members and the identification of the team with the agency's services and culture. Attractive office space in extraordinary building complexes with a professional barista coffee machine, modern workplace equipment and special flair form the basis of the working environment. Flexitime accounts, unlimited employment contracts as well as opportunities for further education complete the employee benefits at CUBE brand communications. Team events such as afterworks, visits to sporting events (including FC Ingolstadt 04, ERC Ingolstadt, DTM races) as well as an annual summer party, a Christmas party and a skiing trip have established themselves as standard in the agency culture and are to become a permanent fixture at CUBE brand communications again after the Corona pandemic.
“Against the background of our agency launch in 2018, the award as one of the top employers of medium-sized businesses in Germany is of particular importance to us. This proves that we as an employer do not have to hide from long-established medium-sized companies", Schilhaneck proudly explains. While the Corona Pandemie, which CUBE brand communications as an agency with focus on services in the event industry has hit hard, the employee-oriented company management is given an even greater importance, Schilhaneck continues. The management is putting a lot of effort into transparently presenting the rapidly changing legal regulations and their effects to colleagues in this difficult phase of the company. In spite of the current circumstances, CUBE brand communications continues to aim to consistently expand employee orientation within the framework of the agency strategy, Schilhaneck said, because the agency obviously wants to rank among the top employers in Germany in the next year again.
The ranking of the top employers (SME) was provided by FOCUS-Business in co-operation with the employer evaluation portal Kununu.
