The Mestemacher company, based in Gütersloh, has been committed to equality between women and men for 20 years. That is why we are very happy about the award from the magazine “Brigitte”, which in its employer study 2021 named Mestemacher as one of the best companies for women.

It is actually the Mestemacher company that has been honoring commitment to equality between men and women for two decades with awards such as “Manager of the Year”. The group of companies has now received an award in this area: According to the 2021 employer study by Brigitte magazine, the large-scale bakery is one of the best companies for women.

Mestemacher achieved four out of five possible stars in the overall rating. “Equality between women and men is an absolute matter close to our hearts. That is why I am particularly pleased that our commitment is seen and appreciated in our own company,” says Prof. Dr. Ulrike Detmers, managing partner and spokeswoman for the Mestemacher Group.

Mestemacher top in female power

The fourth employer study, in which 292 companies took part, focused on measures to reconcile work and family life, flexibility in work, measures to promote careers, the importance of transparency and equality, as well as “female power”. This means the proportion of women in management positions in which Mestemacher achieved the maximum possible rating of five stars.

This key figure gives an idea of ​​where a company is headed. “We have therefore deliberately given this topic more weight,” says study director Ana Fernandez-Mühl from the personnel marketing agency Territory Embrace, with whom Brigitte magazine carried out the study. “Only those who have at least 20 percent women on the two top management levels can achieve five stars in the overall rating,” she explains.

At Mestemacher, this percentage is even 50 percent. “We are proud of our career opportunities and our female power,” says Prof. Dr. Ulrike Detmers. The initiator of the Mestemacher “Manager of the Year” award, which was awarded for the 20th time this year, adds that leadership is a matter for men and women in equal parts. And the next award ceremony is already in sight.

Next Mestemacher award ceremony in March 2022

Under the motto “We celebrate together”, the Mestemacher prizes “Top Father of the Year / Mothers’ Organization 2022” and “LIVING TOGETHER” will be awarded in Berlin on March 11, 2022. The “Top Father of the Year” award was launched in 2006 and honors the family model based on partnership. The “LIFE TOGETHER” prize has been awarded since 2017, honoring models of life that focus on self-help, care and support.

In 2020, the company honored a mother’s organization for the first time. Since 2004 the Mestemacher women’s calendar has been published, which portrays the résumés of outstanding women and fathers. From 2001 to 2013 the “MESTEMACHER KITA PRICE” was also awarded. Further information on the engagements can be found at www.mestemacher.de/gleichstellungsaktivitaeten/
