ETO MAGNETIC is one of Germany’s Most Attractive Employers 2021 among automotive suppliers. This seal of approval signals the high standards lived at ETO to customers and employees. In times of a shortage of skilled workers and changing values, this is particularly important for the recruiting process. For qualified and committed employees, soft criteria such as working climate, working conditions and a good work-life balance are particularly important, in addition to appropriate pay and optimal career opportunities. These are all factors that the renowned F.A.Z. Institute took a closer look at and rated as positive at ETO.
