Since the world first started turning, it has been in a state of change. And digitalization has made things spin even faster. Products and services are changing and new business models are being created – around the clock, across borders. We want to be part of this process. Because we know the importance of leveraging – and driving – the opportunities opened up by these developments. To meet this goal, we need a change in mentality, more openness, and the courage to strike out along new paths. Our Future Work initiative gives us the roadmap we need to take us there. It consists of the following four areas: Diversity: Employees with a wide range of skills, experience, and perspectives join forces to forge new ideas, solutions, and innovations. Leadership: We unite creative interdisciplinary work, flat hierarchies, positive feedback, and a culture that tolerates mistakes to create an inspiring working environment. Flexibility: Mobile working, part-time and flexi-time hours, and sabbaticals allow us to offer flexible working conditions to our employees around the world. Learning: Comprehensive, tailored professional development and talent management programs prepare our employees for digitalization and its rapid innovation cycles.
