Marc O'Polo has established itself as a top employer in the German fashion industry, taking second place in the influential Working in Fashion study by TextilWirtschaft.
After an excellent fifth place in 2020, we move up to a top position in the premium segment this year. We are the only medium-sized company in the top five.
“This is a great result for our entire Marc O’Polo team," says CFO/CHRO Markus Staude. “We are particularly proud that we, as a medium-sized family business, were able to position ourselves in second place among the large international corporations. This excellent ranking confirms that we have been able to communicate clearly, both externally and internally, what we stand for and which path we want to take in the future. On our path of expansion and growth, this is a strong signal, especially for new colleagues.”
The Working in Fashion survey is conducted once a year by industry magazine TextilWirtschaft. Different categories are surveyed to show what is important to employees at work today and what makes a good employer. We succeeded in positioning ourselves in the top ranks across all areas in the current study. We achieved the absolute top value, and thus first place, in the category “Social Responsibility/Sustainable Business”. It also scored particularly well in the areas of “working atmosphere”, “good work-life balance” and “attractiveness of products”, followed by “job security” and “future potential”.
Around 4,400 graduates, young professionals and established professionals took part in the study this year. We are one of 40 companies that were surveyed.
