“It is clearly stated in the ifm Vision and Philosophy Book that the most important asset of a company is its employees. As an ifm leader, these words are a guiding principle for me. In order to earn the loyalty of our customers, we first have to earn the loyalty of our employees. There cannot be a disconnect between these two concepts. Receiving the Top Employer distinction recognizes our dedication to our employees and the exceptional service they provide to our customers every day,” said Roger Varma, CEO of ifm efector and ifm prover.
