Women in the group.

Within the scope of introducing a quota for women's positions, we were able to increase the number of women holding positions at the top and middle management levels in Germany as well as internationally (not including Germany) in 2012. Between December 2012 and December 2011, the figure underwent a slight 0.7% drop owing to reorganization (including the sale of parts of the company) at T‐Mobile USA. In all other segments the figure continued to rise, as in previous years.

By the end of 2015, 30 percent of upper and middle management positions are to be filled by women. This rule applies to all of Telekom's international subsidiaries.

Reporting against standards.
By reporting data on the percentage of women holding positions in middle and top management, we partially cover the LA 13 (Composition of governance bodies and breakdown of employees per employee category) GRI performance indicator and the S10-01 (Percentage of female employees in relation to total employees) EFFAS indicator and fully cover the S10-02 (Percentage of female FTEs in senior positions) EFFAS indicator. This data is also relevant for criterion 15 (Diversity and health) of the German Sustainability Code. It is also used for reporting on the Global Compact  principle 6 (Elimination of discrimination).

Part-time employees.

The share of part‐time employees came to around 12 percent in 2012, approximately one percentage point more compared to the previous year.

Employees with disabilities.

Supporting and integrating people with disabilities is important to us. At 6.4 percent, the share of disabled employees in Germany put us well over the statutory quota of 5 percent. This value has been steadily increasing since 2009.

Age structure.

The age structure at Telekom in Germany remained unchanged for the most part in 2012 compared to the previous year. The majority of our employees are between the ages of 46 and 55. We experienced a clear decrease in the age group between the ages of 36 and 45 in the three‐year trend. The percentage of employees in this age group decreased from 34 to 31 and then, finally, to 28 percent. The share of employees between the ages of 56 and 65 increased from 7 to 9 percent compared to the previous year.

Company pension.

The increase in fund assets can be attributed to the payments of the increasing number of plan participants (as was the case in previous years). Because the majority of participants in the 2001 pension plan are still active, i.e., still paying into their retirement plans, this increase will remain steady over the next few years.
