UNIBERG Receives the TOP 100 Award for Innovation Excellence  

Eschborn, March 5, 2024 – UNIBERG is thrilled to announce that we have been honored with the TOP 100 Award for Innovation Excellence for the year 2024. This prestigious award is given to medium-sized enterprises in Germany that demonstrate exceptional innovation, and we are proud to be among this select group. 

On behalf of compamedia, the competition’s organizer, a team at the Vienna University of Economics and Business examined the innovative strength of all participants based on more than 100 criteria from five categories: Innovation-promoting top management, innovation climate, innovative processes and organization, external orientation/open innovation, and innovation success. 

For UNIBERG, this recognition is not just an achievement but a testament to the unwavering commitment and dedication of our entire team to innovation. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to every member of the UNIBERG team for their invaluable contributions and for being the backbone of UNIBERG’s innovation journey. 

“I am really inspired by the innovative mindset within our team. To create an environment in which innovation can flourish, we are committed to fostering an open dialogue across technical teams, departments, and levels of hierarchy,” states Martin Ulbricht, CEO of UNIBERG. “We are proud to see a strong identification of our team with the solutions they develop, leading to high employee retention rates and a turnover rate of less than 2%. Our innovative culture is further enhanced through various platforms such as our Lunch & Learn series, as well as team participation in trade fairs and conferences, along with our support for master’s and bachelor’s thesis projects.” 

UNIBERG’s innovative approach is not only about embracing new technologies but also about deeply understanding our customers’ use cases to address future needs with the innovation. Our engagement in research projects, for example, with the state of Schleswig-Holstein and the EConoM funding project with companies from the construction industry we aim to develop solutions for, are examples of these efforts. 

We are looking forward to the future and will continue to push the boundaries and develop innovative solutions in collaboration with our customers and partners. 

The official award ceremony for the TOP 100 companies will take place on June 28th in Weimar.
