The cruise company AIDA Cruises
has been named a "Top Employer 2017" and has taken first place in the Tourism
category, making AIDA Cruises the industry's most popular employer.
Placement at the top of the employer ranking is based on a
survey conducted by the independent market research and consultancy firm,
trendence. 18,000 young professionals with academic qualifications and up to
ten years of professional experience were asked about their preferred employers
and career plans, and evaluated AIDA Cruises as a top employer.
"We are delighted
with the positive reputation of our employer brand. As an
internationally-oriented, young company, it is particularly important for us to
get young professionals interested in AIDA Cruises and to promote junior
personnel. To this end, we have put customized Junior Development programs in
place that accompany young professionals on their career path," explains Dörte
Raasch, Director Development & Experience, Human
Resources Management at AIDA Cruises.
The results of the survey serve
employers and employees as orientation and a benchmark.
