Your labs. Your service.

Focus and Focus-Money, accompanied by Prof. Dr. Werner Sarges, are electing “Germany’s best future-oriented jobs” for the second time. AGROLAB is one of the test winners and has yet again proven the good economic situation of the company and the related secure and future-proof jobs.

Over the last few years, the currently good economic situation has led to a shortage of specialist and management personnel in the German employment market which every company has sure to have felt. Many people say that Germany is close to full employment. The prosperity of society is based precisely on this scenario and this is why it is not surprising that the safety of workplaces is the focus for many employees.

In collaboration with DEUTSCHLAND TEST and FOCUS-MONEY, the issue of companies with secure and future-proof workplaces in Germany was pursued for the second time. All companies in Germany with at least 400 employees were used, which corresponds to a total of 10,000 companies. The key figures used were revenue, earnings and employee development over a retrospective period of 5 years (2012-2016).

  1. The employee numbers were not supposed to be reduced in any year.
  2. The annual revenue had to be higher than the moving average for each year.
  3. The earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) had to be consistently positive.

On this basis, 751 companies in 105 sectors across Germany were awarded. AGROLAB is one of these companies, and may now bear the title “Germany’s best future-oriented jobs”.
