“Because of the pandemic, 2020 has been a challenging year for us all, so it is great to see that our strategy to put our employees first has been once again recognized in this way. We will continue to look for ways to improve, so we can retain this prestigious title”, commented Dietmar Knoess, Global Director of People and Organization at Puma.
