What makes us special as an employer
Our WTS culture

We are a young, dynamic company and have a personal and appreciative corporate culture. Working independently and entrepreneurship are the key to our success. We work in a flexible manner and have the confidence to give our employees a great deal of responsibility.

We apply our open and trusting communication culture across all of the hierarchy levels. The exchange between employees and management staff takes place on equal terms. Our flat hierarchies support this trusting relationship and already enable young employees to quickly work together with the Director and Partner level.

The employees are regularly provided with up-to-date information about strategy, corporate and business development. For this, we use the entire bandwidth of possibilities, which are available to state-of-the-art internal communication.

Differences of opinion are addressed and discussed openly. This openness is a significant key to our success.


Good leadership is important to us

We know that professional leadership is crucial for our employees, in order for them to feel at ease and fully develop their performance potential. We promote our development-oriented leadership culture at various levels. In doing so, we let ourselves be guided by our leadership principles: Our management staff should be role models and develop trust, motivate with targets and promote employees individually. Appreciation, fair communication and constructive conflict management are an essential part of this.

Management staff are also human - that is why our management team takes advantage of training courses and coaching on a regular basis, so as to further develop their leadership know-how. In the sense of a pit stop, here they can reflect on current challenges and obtain new ideas - whether it relates to change, innovation, value orientation or team-building.

We want our employees to think entrepreneurially - our managers support this by giving free scope and delegating responsibility. They trust their employees.

Our annual target-setting meetings also involve understanding how employees can realistically achieve their targets and which individual development measures can support them with this. This is where our WTS Academy also comes into play.


WTS is a top employer

For us, a trusting and collegial working atmosphere is a precondition for constructive collaboration. We keep up the team concept - and this has influenced our culture. This way, we succeed again and again in providing outstanding performance together.

But we don’t just talk about our culture - we also set ourselves a critical benchmark. That is why we participated in the TOP JOB employee survey - and received an award as Top Employer. We also achieved a similarly good result in the azur survey on Top Employers.

azur 100

The WTS Group is one of the azur100 Top Employers 2017. In tax law, WTS is impressive in a market comparison in the “Training for Lawyers”, “Promotion Opportunities” and “Career and Family”, “Work-Life Balance” and “Internationality” categories. The company’s own advanced training programme (WTS Academy), receives special mention, with offers for professional workshops and IT and soft skill training courses (more about Top Employer legal fields).

The selection of the azur100 Top Employers is made by the azur editors on the basis of several questionnaires and surveys. The opinion of 1,620 applicants (azur Applicant Survey), information from 300 employers and 2,100 professional young lawyers (azur Associate Survey) are taken into consideration in the rating (more about azur surveys).


WTS was awarded with the TOP JOB seal for its extraordinary workplace culture, and therefore ranks among Germany’s best employers.


“The awarding of the TOP JOB seal underlines the very positive development of WTS in the past years”, Fritz Esterer, Director of WTS, assesses the award. “WTS has grown rapidly since it was founded in 2000. In the last calendar year alone, we generated Group sales revenue in excess of EUR 100 million. We always aim to provide an excellent working environment for our employees, and they are an important component in our success."


The independent scientific rating in the categories “Leadership & Vision”, “Motivation & Dynamics”, “Culture & Communication”, “Employee Development & Employee Perspective”, “Family Orientation & Demographics” and “Internal Entrepreneurialship” were established using an employee survey and an HR questionnaire.
