No Fuzzing On Ethics And Service For Global Top Table

ISS Germany has been awarded Best Service Provider for Medium-Sized Companies 2018; and JLL has been voted one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies. 

 

Prominent German business magazine WirtschaftsWoche has recognised ISS as the 'Best Service Provider for Medium-Sized Companies 2018' within property and facility services. This is the second year in a row that ISS has taken the title.

The award was based on a survey of medium sized companies that assessed service providers on consulting and support, cost-performance ratio, service quality, and employee competence.

The survey considered 267 service providers from 28 industries, and 6,709 decision makers, buyers and users of German services participated.

Alexander Granderath, Country Manager of ISS Germany, said:  “My thanks go to our employees, who deliver high-quality services with the power of the human touch and, in combination with the latest technologies, lead our strategy to success.”

ISS was also recently ranked as ‘Top Employer’ by German news magazine Focus-Business based on an online survey of the social media networks Xing and kununu.com. In addition, ISS Germany’s new headquarters were rated 75.2 on the Leesman Index for workplace effectiveness, making the offices the highest-ranked in Germany and placing them in the top 6% of the global benchmarking system.
