SBK distinguished as a ‘company with a future’

SBK receives the highest honour in the ‘Germany’s companies with a future’ survey by Stern magazine.

In light of the changing economy and the challenges brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, digitisation is of particular importance for the sustainability of companies, as determined by Stern in its 38/2021 issue. SBK is among the award winners in the category for SMEs with up to 2,500 employees, garnering the top score of five stars. The survey was created in cooperation with Territory Embrace and considers digital structures in key areas the most important criteria.


A total of 156 companies filled in the 16-page survey with 60 questions that gathered facts as well as self-assessments. The investigation was broken down into three areas:

•           Strategy and significance

•           Processes and products

•           Innovations and qualification

All three areas were weighted equally with 33 per cent each, and the results were converted to a scale of one to five for each dimension. The overall result was calculated using the average of the three areas.
