- Company receives "Axia Award 2011 Rhine-Main"
- Prize for clear strategic direction and effective, flexible business management
Frankfurt/Wörrstadt - Another award for the juwi group. On Monday, the German leading renewable energy company received the "Axia Award 2011 Rhine-Main", advertised by Deloitte, a leading accounting and consulting company. juwi COO Jochen Magerfleisch, who accepted the award in Frankfurt, sees the prize as a confirmation of juwi’s chosen path: "Of course, we have a very well-structured controlling. Of course, we make sure that every project is efficient. However, we do not lead our employees according to these financial ratios. We practice a value-oriented and consensus-oriented management system. The focus is on people."
The jury, chaired by Peter Steiner, praised the juwi group as a role model for the economy: "The juwi Holding AG provided a convincing and consistent set of measures across all areas. Based on an ideal strategic orientation, all respective actions such as a comprehensive controlling up to a supportive staff management are realized successoriented. juwi has also positioned itself as a role model for the economy on another level - as the company plans to offer renewable electricity with production costs way below the selling prices of the big energy companies. The juwi Holding AG demonstrates in an impressive way that it is "Fit for Tomorrow", and is therefore a worthy laureate."
With its prize, Deloitte awards medium-sized companies that sustainably succeed on the market with their outstanding achievements on the basis of sustained excellence. The juwi group was awarded for its clear strategic orientation, an efficient and flexible controlling and staff management. Other laureates were the STI Group, Fissler and HMG Hotel Management and Service mbH & Co. KG.
