kothes as an employer
What makes working for us special?
We provide comprehensive advice to our customers and offer them an entire range of services relating to the smart information life cycle. Our employees manage individual projects completely and independently, working efficiently within a team and coordinating closely with the customer, from initial meetings and on-site research to the creation of high-quality documents containing text and images and to punctual delivery.
These varied and exciting tasks are developed in a professional working environment, with the latest tools and methods. The large pool of knowledge and active team spirit at our company provide vital support. We always agree to open-ended work contracts. Thanks to low employee fluctuation, our team is getting bigger and stronger all the time. Depending on suitability and inclination, our employees are deployed in a variety of service areas and for different customer groups. Temporary moves to other branch offices are sometimes necessary because of order conditions, so flexibility is an important requirement for anyone wanting to work for us successfully.
We are an award-winning business. In 2009 and 2015, former Federal Minister for Economics, Wolfgang Clement, awarded us the “Top Job” seal as one of the 100 best employees among mid-sized companies in Germany, recognising our performance in the fields of “leadership and vision”, “family orientation and demographics”, “motivation and dynamics”, “employee development and perspective”, “culture and communication” as well as “internal entrepreneurship”.
In 2014, kothes was recognised by Kreis Viersen and IHK Mittlerer Niederrhein as a particularly “family-friendly firm”, partly for our flexible working models and because we are open to part-time employees taking on leadership roles.
In addition, kothes is among the top 114 consultants among German mid-size enterprises, as proven by the “Top Consultant” award. We received this award in 2013 from former Federal Minister of Finance Hans Eichel and Professor Dietmar Fink from Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg as part of a Germany-wide cross-industry comparison between companies. And in the past few years we have regularly won the tekom documentation award, which is handed out by the German Association for Technical Communication.
How would we describe our company culture?
Treating each other in a respectful and supportive manner is a matter of course. Good ideas are heard, supported, and implemented. An unhindered transfer of knowledge and open communications are our top priority. Only then can individuals learn from the knowledge of others, which in turn benefits the entire team. Our flat hierarchies make for short distances and fast decisions.
We want to delight our customers with our results. For us as a full-service provider, that means offering creating ideas, innovative concepts, technical expertise, punctual implementation, and measurable results. Optimal quality is very important to us. We achieve all this, thanks to our creative and competent employees, our modern tools and processes, and our outstanding working atmosphere.
