UMSATZSCHMIEDE is a certified consultancy in order to  officially confirm what customers have valued for years.

Why does certification make sense? The idea of certification is that customers can receive an independent and neutral assessment of the product or service of the certified company.

In order to be certified, the effectiveness of the existing quality management system is proven and is extented  on the basis of a constructive evaluation of an external expert.

UMSATZSCHMIEDE Marketing & Sales Consultancy was successfully certified as TOP-Consultant with a gold seal.


With approximately 100,000 individual consultants in Germany, the market is confusing - especially for small and medium-sized companies.

The certification is therefore a good orientation for more transparency in the selection of the appropriate management consulting. Internal and external stable processes and a comprehensible quality management have been a very important basis for the consulting work since the foundation of the Hamburg based consultancy in 2014.

Now is has been officially confirmed: ServiceValue and the Hamburg Consulting Club have awarded UMSATZSCHMIEDE as a top consultant.

Together with the renowned Hamburg Consulting Forum (HCF) demanding quality standards were defined and used to carefully and comprehensively test UMSATZSCHMIEDE.


The examination covers following areas: Company, Collaboration and Competence.

UMSATZSCHMIEDE was awarded the Hamburg Family Seal. This certification is awarded to companies that offer their employees an appropriate work-life balance through their family-friendly corporate policy.


UMSATZSCHMIEDE has implemented sustainable steps to improve the compatibility of work and family life, which are reasonable in terms of type and size of the company. The employees can work from home and working hours can be flexibly planned.

Especially for a conscious employer marketing it can make sense to deal with these criteria of a family-friendly company:

  • The company offers a sufficient number of options for structuring the length and location of working hours.

  • Employees have low-threshold access to relevant information, e.g. parental leave arrangements, company agreements, etc.

  • It is possible to leave the workplace in family emergencies; in unexpected cases before start of work, the start can be postponed or the day can be taken off.

  • 'Compatibility' has a place and significance in corporate principles.

  • All employees, full-time and part-time are equally considered and supported within the scope of personnel development.

  • During family-related absences (parental leave, etc.), the company maintains in active contact with its employees.

  • The interests of employees with families are taken into account in work planning, in particular holidays.

The Hamburg Family Seal is awarded by the Hamburg Alliance for Families - a joint initiative of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, represented by the Department of Labor, Social Affairs, Family and Integration (BASFI), the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce & Industry and the Hamburg Chamber of Crafts.

UMSATZSCHMIEDE will be happy to support you in analyzing which aspects have already been implemented in your company and which areas require change.

The implementation and execution of the criteria listed above can make a major contribution to improved employer marketing. Nowadays, the work-life balance plays an increasingly important role for junior staff and should be supported by a social and successful company.
