IVW has been granted the "TOTAL E-QUALITY" award for equal opportunity. The German association annually awards this recognition for exemplary equal opportunity-oriented personnel management. It certifies a successful and sustainable commitment to equal opportunity for women and men on the job. One focus is on the promotion of women in management positions. In addition to reconciling work and family life, another focus is on recruiting and developing personnel in line with equal opportunity measures, promoting partnership behavior at work and embedding equal opportunity standards into corporate principles.
