Heel’s Benefit Programs for Employees are among the Best of German Companies

"Capital" wanted to analyze in depth, which services companies offer their employees in addition to their salary, to position themselves as an attractive employer. The study did not make any differences between big DAX-listed companies or medium-sized enterprises. Overall, 1,000 companies have been asked by Kienbaum to particpate in the study.

In the ranking of Capital and Kienbaum, the employee benefits of the companies have been evaluated in overall five different categories. The innovative, individually by the company offered benefits, had the biggest influence on the overall result. At Heel, these individual benefits are the company bikes, as well as the free counseling when family members are in need of care and a dry-cleaning service.

As a forerunner of innovative ideas, Heel already opened the corporate child care facility “Heel Kids” in 2011 and was also a pioneer in Germany when it came to the topic of company bikes. That the programs are made use of so actively by the Heel employees, is also due to the fact that they are communicated in a very structure way by the company, which was also positively evaluated by Capital’s study. Heel uses many different channels for internal communications - only recently their own employee app was launched.
