Management consultancy certifications


UMSATZ SCHMIEDE has also been certified as a management consultancy in order to make official what customers have valued for years.

Why does certification make sense?


The idea of certification is that the customer can receive an independent and neutral assessment of the product or service of the certified company.

UMSATZSCHMIEDE Marketing and Sales Consultancy was successfully certified as a TOP management consultant with a gold seal.

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


The certification is therefore a good orientation for more transparency in the selection of the right management consultancy.


Internal and external stable processes and comprehensible quality management have been a very important basis of the consulting activity since UMSATZSCHMIEDE was founded in 2014 and have now been officially sealed:


UMSATZSCHMIEDE is a consultant member of the Hamburger Consulting Forum eV (HCF), in which management consultants, consulting customers and institutional partners have been committed to quality and transparency in the consulting industry since 2004. A prerequisite for membership as a consultant is a written commitment to comply with the criteria developed by the Hamburg Consulting Forum for good consulting practice in the areas of company, collaboration and competence.


The HCF offers its consultant members a three-stage Qualified Personal Audit (QPA) and regular repeat audits. UMSATZSCHMIEDE has been certified since 2019 and has been awarded the “Certified Consultant” seal by the Hamburg Consulting Forum.

Christine Witthöft - entrepreneur with experience as a role model: Notarized by the initiative "WOMEN enter into"


The "FRAUEN unternehmen" initiative was launched by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy in order to encourage women to set up their own business models and to inspire girls to become entrepreneurs. Because although more and more women in Germany decide to be their own boss, the desire to become an entrepreneur is not yet a matter of course for many. Only every third company is run by a woman.

The self-employment rate for women - the percentage of self-employed in all employed persons - is only half as high as for men at 7.6 percent.

As an example of female entrepreneurship, Christine Witthöft is now passing on her inspiration and passion and is looking forward to encouraging girls and women to believe in their own strengths.


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 company policy.

Hamburger Familiensiegel Zertifizierung

Small and medium-sized companies in particular know that family-friendliness pays off! Research confirms that employees work in family-friendly companies


  • are more satisfied and motivated,

  • to call in sick less often,

  • return earlier from parental leave and

  • Remain loyal to the company and thus retain their valuable knowledge for longer.


UMSATZSCHMIEDE has implemented sustainable measures to improve the compatibility of work and family, which are reasonable in terms of type and scope, taking into account the purpose and size of the company. At UMSATZSCHMIEDE, you can work from the home office and plan your working hours flexibly.


For a conscious employer marketing in particular, it can make sense to deal with these criteria of a family-friendly company:


  • The company offers ample opportunities to shape the length and location of working hours (during the day, over the course of the year).

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

  • The work can be moved home / to other locations on a case-by-case basis or in a fixed manner.

  • The topic of “compatibility” has a place and value in the corporate principles.

  • As part of personnel development, employees who are or were on part-time or parental leave are equally taken into account and promoted.

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

  • When planning work, especially vacation, the concerns of employees with families are taken into account.



The Hamburg family seal is awarded by the Hamburg Alliance for Families. The alliance is a joint initiative of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, represented by the Authority for Labor, Social Affairs, Family and Integration (BASFI), the Chamber of Commerce
Hamburg and the Hamburg Chamber of Crafts.
