Career with Children program started for a third time

Our Career with Children mentoring program started up again in April 2017. Potential junior employees for technical and managerial positions from various Group business units in Germany are coached before, during, and after their parental leave by an experienced manager in their role as mentor. They amass new technical and methodological competencies "in tandem" and benefit from participating in the program's network. The third round of the Career with Children program saw the training of 31 tandems. The program was also supplemented by web-based learning modules on various topics. More than 90 percent of participating junior employees and two-thirds of the managers are female. The program lasts 22 months and ends in January 2019.
