Great Place To Work and Kununu Certifications

Munich-based Electronic Engineering Solutions Company CELUS Claims Great Place to Work and Kununu Certifications

The news comes as the deep tech startup increases its multinational headcount to over 60 employees and expands its partnerships in the UK, Europe, and beyond

MUNICH, GERMANY, JANUARY 2023: CELUS (www.celus.io), a leading provider of cloud-based electronics engineering automation software, has received employer certifications from Great Place to Work Deutschland and kununu, two of Germany’s most well-respected platforms in the HR sector.

Great Place to Work certifies the workplace cultures of companies based on anonymous employee surveys and through analysis of personnel measures. The institute identifies trust-oriented and high-performance cultures that ensure the motivation, loyalty and happiness of employees that in turn solidify the success of the business.

CELUS’ certification comes as the company celebrates its ever-growing workforce of over sixty employers, hailing from twenty-eight different countries. The business has a number of core principles centred on curiosity, diversity, open communication, flexibility and integrity in which all workers’ ideas and contributions are highly valued. 

Coupled with self-development opportunities, including a yearly ‘learning budget’, flexible working hours, and generous health and fitness benefits, CELUS has established a culture fit for modern working routines and stresses. Employees from all over the world with a passion for technology and electronics are prized at the Munich-based startup. 

Another of Germany’s company evaluation platforms, kununu, has also awarded CELUS a Top Company 2023 badge, further confirming its positive working culture. Kununu draws its certifications from review submitted by employees themselves, converting employer ratings into real improvement measures.

CELUS CEO Tobias Pohl said: “We’re unbelievably proud of the culture of this company and the pleasure that our employees get from their work here. We have put collaboration, expertise, diversity and proactivity at the heart of how CELUS operates and to be certified as such by Great Place to Work and kununu gives tangible recognition to these efforts.”
