The USIQ certify companies in the United States as Top Employers

We are certify companies in the United States as Top Employers. Present your company as a TOP EMPLOYER.

The TOP EMPLOYER (USIQ) employer seal is awarded after a comprehensive assessment. This includes an anonymous employee survey as well as an HR interview. Our TOP EMPLOYER seal meets the highest standards and is ideally suited for building your employer brand.

As part of the survey, we conduct an anonymous questionnaire among employees. Among other things, employees are asked about their overall satisfaction and willingness to recommend your company as an employer. All company employees must have the opportunity to participate in the anonymous survey.

We also evaluate the area of employer benefits. This can include salary, fringe benefits, company cars or other employee offers and benefits. We also look into the availability of further training, a fair salary level, sustainable corporate management and career opportunities for employees. The questionnaire collects objective data on relevant areas of HR policy and practice.

There must be a fair balance between the needs of employees and the opportunities and offers of the employer.
