Workforce.

Workforce development worldwide.

The number of employees decreased in 2011 compared to the previous year. The reason for personnel reductions was high competitive pressure as well as the negative effects of the financial crisis on international subsidiaries, for example in Greece. As a responsible employer, we placed emphasis on conducting staff restructuring measures in a socially acceptable way. You will find more information in our Human Resources Report.

Tools for socially acceptable staff restructuring.

We continued our efforts to engage in socially acceptable staff restructuring at Telekom companies in 2011. We use internationally proven tools giving employees the option to voluntarily leave the company as part of this process. In Germany some of the most notable examples include early retirement for civil servants and the new provisions, issued in the fall of 2011, on phased retirement for older employees, employees outside collective agreements and senior executives whose responsibilities clearly extend beyond legal standards (Source: 2011 Human Resources Report, p. 32).
