UMSATZSCHMIEDE has also been certified as a management consultancy in order to officially do what customers have valued for years.

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


In order to be certified, the effectiveness of the quality management system is demonstrated and is also expanded for the future based on the 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.

Christine Witthöft - entrepreneur with experience as a role model : certified by the initiative "FRAUEN unternehmen"

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 whose family-friendly corporate policy offers their employees an appropriate work-life balance.


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

  • are happier and more motivated,

  • report sick less often,

  • return earlier from parental leave and

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

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

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

  • The company offers sufficient opportunities to design the length and location of working hours (during the day, during the year).

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

  • Leaving the workplace in family emergencies is possible; in the event of unexpected cases before the start of work, the start can be postponed / the day can be taken.

  • The work can be relocated home / to other places on a case-by-case basis.

  • The topic of “compatibility” has a place and importance in the company principles.

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

  • The company actively maintains contact with employees during family-related absences (parental leave, etc.).

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

The implementation and execution of the criteria listed above can largely contribute to improved employer marketing. In today's world, the "work-life balance" plays an increasingly important role for junior staff and should not only be supported by a social and successful company for this reason.
