Since receiving the Top Employer Awards for Germany, Austria and Engineers in 2013, Sirona’s excellent human resources policy and very good working conditions have also earned it international recognition in 2014. In an award ceremony in Shanghai, Sirona China was given the “Top Employer China 2014” award in mid-January. The company’s German employees have also been successful at the Chinese site.
Sirona China was given the highest award “Top Employer China 2014” along with 40 other employers. Michael Elling, Vice President Corporate Human Resources of the Sirona Group, expressed his satisfaction: “Our employees are the heart of our company. The Top Employer Award for Sirona China is an acknowledgment of our local and global efforts to support our employees. It is part of our global growth strategy, it increases our attractiveness as employers, and it motivates our employees to work at Sirona in Germany and abroad.”
Growth and development at Sirona China
In 2006, Sirona began to develop the business in China with just 30 employees. Today, eight years later, there are more than 150 employees here – a success story, also with respect to personnel development. “Employee satisfaction is the basis of our success at Sirona China. This is why we find it important to have an excellent team, promote team spirit, and motivate continuing development among our employees. It is rewarding to see how many employees successfully climb the career ladder,” explains Henning Müller, Vice President China and South East Asia. A strong growth that is reflected in the market, Sirona China is the number one company for dental treatment chairs. Digital dentistry and CAD/CAM products have also made significant gains in the past two years.
