We achieve this goal with the following measures:
Local country management and therefore an international management team
An international workforce at the Group headquarters
A complementary composition of management and other teams (internationality, expertise, experience, age, sexual orientation, etc.)
Women in management positions reflecting the proportion of women in the total workforce in Germany
Our goal is to attract and advance highly qualified and committed employees around the world who can bring various social and professional skills to our company and thus contribute to our business success.
