The Schmersal Group is the winner of the “Best Managed Companies Award 2023”. This award is presented by the consulting and auditing company Deloitte Private, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung and the BDI (Federal Association of German Industry). Excellently managed medium-sized companies are awarded, which are convincing in four management areas: strategy, productivity & innovation, culture & commitment as well as governance & finance.

For the Schmersal Group, this award is cause for great joy, but also confirmation of the continuous further development of the company’s internal processes. Managing Director Philip Schmersal: “Based on our corporate values, we continually adapt the management processes to growth. In doing so, we follow the goal of proceeding very systematically in all management decisions and including as many facts as possible, while maintaining a high degree of agility. In this way, we can make decisions very quickly and at the same time well-founded, with a clear head, even in the face of ever increasing speed of change and in the event of unforeseen events. In addition, we plan for the long term and in line with our corporate governance, which also includes the impact of our activities on society and the environment.”
It is the same principles that qualify companies for this award. “A Best Managed Company like Schmersal is characterized by a forward-looking strategy, high productivity and a pronounced innovation culture as well as value-oriented corporate management,” explains Dr. Christine Wolter, Partner and Head of Deloitte Private.

Markus Seiz, Best Managed Company Program Manager and Director at Deloitte Private, adds: “Best Managed Companies are a strong and supporting pillar of our economy. They are the drivers of innovation and at the same time ‘keepers of the flame’ in the sense of sustainable corporate management. Such strong companies think in generations, not quarters, which is why they deserve an award.”

Schmersal is also pleased about the award, which was presented in Düsseldorf on May 25, 2023, because it increases the visibility of the employer brand. Philip Schmersal: “We are growing continuously and are therefore always on the lookout for employees who share our values ​​and would like to get involved with us in an innovative company for the safety of man and machine. When we are recognized by a world-renowned consulting firm for exemplary management culture and good corporate governance, it increases our reputation in the competition for good employees.”
