International development and management programs

The object of our international development and leadership programs is for high potentials and high achievers to gain a foothold in the Group, to keep them loyal to the company and to position them in suitable jobs. These programs focus on development of the upcoming leader generation and on support in coping with the challenges they face now and in the future. At the same time, the programs aim to enhance their sense of belonging, increase knowledge exchange and promote personal responsibility.

The number of participants in Global Talent Pool and the replacement for the Talent Space program increased in 2018.

2018 saw the continuation of successful formats, ongoing improvements based on participant feedback, and the redesign of individual offerings. One example is the levelUP! executive program introduced in 2017. Overall, more than 1,400 executives took part in this program in 2017 and 2018. There has been a trend toward participants from Germany, who make up the bulk of executives within the Group. The program focuses on emphasizing the innovation culture and technology-based leadership.
