We are proud that AIDA Cruises was awarded for several times as one of the best employers in Germany. Find out more about what kind of awards we have got:

AIDA is a Top Employer in 2022

AIDA Cruises has been recognized as one of the best employers in Germany by the Top Employers Institute in 2022. The international institute is renowned worldwide for its certification of outstanding people practices and, in an extensive study, annually selects the country’s Top Employers. Assessed company areas included e.g. talent strategy, training & development, career and succession planning, compensation & benefits, and the corporate culture.

AIDA is one of the most attractive employers for young professionals and graduates

Top career prospects for graduates and young professionals at AIDA – for this, we were again awarded this year with the seal “Most Attractive Tourism Employer” by trendence Institute. The independent market research and consulting company surveyed 18,000 graduates and young professionals about employers they would like to work for and their career plans.
AIDA continues to rank at the top of the industry and, in comparison to competitors, offers best prospects for a successful, professional future.

Fair treatments of interns

We are a member of the initiative “Fair Company” established by karriere.de, the shared portal of Handelsblatt and Wirtschaftswoche, and have committed ourselves to fair treatment of interns, students, and university graduates. In addition to adequate payment, the initiative promotes, for example, only offering internships to students – and not graduates. Since 2010, we have held the quality seal “Fair Company.”

TOP Training company 2020

AIDA adheres to the highest standards in training as well. This commitment was honored for the third time in a row with the title of Top Training Company 2020 by the Rostock Chamber of Industry and Commerce. This title was given to the AIDA Customer Center.

In the fall of 2007, the general assembly of the Rostock Chamber of Industry and Commerce established the award “TOP Training Company” in recognition of company training that goes beyond what is required by law and demonstrates commitment in the areas of career orientation, professional training, and specialist training.
