In recent years we have been awarded several prizes for our human resources policy. To us, that has been an incentive and an obligation to continue and optimize our successful concepts.
Fraport has been awarded the "Fair Company" quality seal for many years. With this initiative, the jobs and business magazine "Karriere" honors companies that speak out against the exploitation of the so-called internship generation (generation of perpetual trainees) and act accordingly. The company loses the seal if it violates on oft he five guidelines defined.
In 2013, Fraport signed the Hessian Charter on Compatibility of Career and Caregiving Activities.
Demographic changes are characteristic for the employment situation in Germany. More and more people have to provide care for relatives alongside their job commitments. Signatories of this charter aim at supporting their workforce when assuming responsibility for family members in need of special care.
In early December 2013 Fraport AG was awarded the “Star Enterprise” title by the “Praktikantenspiegel” survey.
The “Praktikantenspiegel” ("Interns Mirror") determines the attractiveness of individual companies as employers and provides an overall impression of the two aspects “employer attractiveness” and “brand image”.
On the one hand, employer attractiveness is evaluated on the basis of the experiences the interns have had with the enterprises. On the other hand, brand image relates to how an enterprise is perceived from outside.
Only interns are interviewed in this survey making sure that the indicators of the companies under scrutiny are authentic and relevant.
The study has been conducted since 2010 as an annual online survey with more than 7,000 participating interns. It was co-founded by CLEVIS, a leading human resource consulting company in the German-speaking area, and by the online job resource ABSOLVENTA. As shown by the study, the high employer attractiveness experienced by the interns confirms the positive brand image of a Star classification.
Fraport AG was recognized on May 29, 2008 at the awards ceremony of the business competition "Erfolgsfaktor Familie 2008" ("Success Factor Family 2008") as overall winner in the "large-scale enterprise" category in Berlin. The former German Federal Minister of Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth, Ursula von der Leyen, recognized Fraport for corporate policies with an exemplary family orientation.
"The winners are trendsetters in modern human resources policy and are setting new standards for the whole German business sector", emphasized von der Leyen. "With this competition, we are making its success stories public and create role models according to which other enterprises in Germany should orientate themselves."
Fraport AG's trainee program was awarded the "2016 Trainee Program Quality Seal" by Absolventa GmbH in 2016. This makes Fraport AG one of the companies that have proved to offer career-enhancing and fair trainee programs.
