Based on national surveys conducted by audimax Medien, students and graduates in the fields of mathematics, information technology, natural sciences and technology ("MINT" – the German equivalent of STEM subjects) have nominated SEW EURODRIVE as a "MINT Minded Company" for the sixth time in a row this year, following 2018. This means that in 2023, we are once again among the German companies that respondents feel show exemplary commitment to young STEM employees.

With this campaign, audimax Medien aims to counteract the trend that more and more STEM positions remain vacant every year. The initiative is supported by the "MINT Zukunft schaffen" ("Create a STEM future") employer association, of which German Chancellor Angela Merkel is the patron.

Award-winning learning culture

E-Learning Award 2017
SEW-EURODRIVE receives the E-Learning Award 2017

We have received the E-Learning Award 2017 in the "Personal Learning Environment" category for our "Learn learning" e-learning project. Our pioneering e-learning scenario beat numerous other projects to win the eLearning Journal's prestigious award.

"Learn learning" is primarily about communicating as equals. With the help pf 36 practical questions, users determine their own personal learning type. The four categories of learning type are characteristic of different learning styles. "Explorer" learners are particularly good at learning from experiences and observations. Other learning types are the "Practitioner", the "Thinker" and the "Decision-maker". Employees can thus receive a learning program tailored to their individual personality.

This learning-focused, interactive design promotes users' intrinsic motivation and opens up new learning options, furthering individual personal development and a stronger learning exchange. True to our motto "It's people who make the difference", it makes a valuable contribution our corporate culture and values .

The vital360° health management program was already awarded the seal of excellence in the 2015 Corporate Health Awards. In 2017, an official one-day audit was carried out where we were able to improve our results once again. We were particularly pleased to hear that we were able to score as one of the finalists in the mechanical engineering / heavy industry category. This means that we can continue to count ourselves among the healthiest companies in Germany! Among other things, the mandatory "Healthy Leadership" training series, the inclusion of health scouts to spread the word as well as our variety of sports and health activities contributed to this excellent result. These measures support our employees not only in their careers, but also in maintaining their health and having fun. The auditors were particularly impressed by the health concept worked out by our employees which provides orientation for all employees and encourages them to take action for themselves and their health.
