Money alone is not satisfied, but more satisfied
A good salary does not automatically lead to high employee satisfaction. As a study by Glassdoor Economic Research shows, it is for Company especially important to create a work environment in which the employees feel comfortable.
On the one hand, this includes a practiced positive corporate culture, transparency and general corporate morals. Equally important are factors that specifically affect the individual employee, such as an appropriate work-life balance, supervisor behavior and above all the ability to climb up the career ladder.
Pay increases only increase general employee satisfaction slightly
Money is not everything. A sense of righteousness. Therefore, the salary itself as a hygiene factor would be mistaken, would be wrong. Although the study shows that a wage increase of 10 percent only corresponds to an increase in the individual employee satisfaction rate of one percent, an elementary role is also played by the initial level when considering the remuneration.
And this has been further elucidated by Glassdoor in an up-to-date data analysis and the Top 10 of the employers in which employees in Germany earn the best. The results are based on remuneration statements made between the 1. July 2014 and the 30. June 2016 were shared on the platform. Companies were considered for which 20 or more salary claims by employees from Germany were published on glassdoor.de during the stated period.

German traditional companies offer high remuneration
The results of the earnings ranking for Germany show that employees earn particularly well with traditional companies. German industrial companies are prized worldwide for their quality and reliability, and it is no coincidence that Germany is one of the world's largest exporters.
A central cornerstone for this success is the well-trained staff, who have often worked in the company for many years and are closely connected with the company. Maintaining the competent workforce is important to continue to be successful and competitive. To achieve this, the employees have to be appropriately remunerated and at the same time new talents and potential applicants have to be recruited through appropriate remuneration.
