Once again Maintal Konfitüren convinced by its family friendliness. We are pleased that the Bavarian Ministry of Work and Economy awarded us as one of the most family friendly companies in Bavaria. An all-around package with lots of offers for an ideal compatibility of work and family and an equitably a harmonious work-life-balance convinced the jury.
Maintal Konfitüren already achieved the jury stage for the 7th time. As a finalist in the Großer Preis des Mittelstandes (grand prix of medium-sized companies), Maintal is one of Bavaria’s 13 most exemplary and best mid-size companies. The Großer Preis des Mittelstandes, which is awarded by the Oskar Patzelt Foundation, has been a coveted award for many years, and is regarded as Germany’s most important and renowned business prize. Only around one in every thousand companies in Germany is even nominated for it.
A seal says more than a thousand words: With the “Wirtschaftsmagnet” seal, companies can document that they excel in seven areas, from business performance or innovative force right through to social responsibility. The seal attests that Maintal Konfitüren is one of the strongest medium-sized companies and has a particularly magnetic attraction.
Three cheers for the gourmet region of Franconia in the “Franken kulinarisch” (culinary Franconia) awards. For the 15th time now, awards went to men and women from the whole of Franconia who have made an outstanding contribution to Franconia’s gourmet culture. In 2017, Maintal managing director Anne Feulner was one of the seven prize-winners and was named “Jam Connoisseur of the Year”.
Repeat award-winner: For many years, Maintal Konfitüren has devoted itself to an HR policy that takes account of both professional and personal challenges and establishes a good work-life balance. Maintal is one of the pioneers of the “Initiative Familienorientierte Personalpolitik” (initiative for family-oriented HR policy), an initiative founded in 2007 by the Schweinfurt Employment Agency and the administrative district of Schweinfurt.
Maintal has won multiple awards in the social sphere and is an attractive employer in the region when it comes to family friendliness. For two years in a row, Maintal was the winner in the category “50-250 Employees”, particularly as a result of its family-friendly and flexible work culture.
