Due to the increasing challenges in our market environment and changes in the working world, we are constantly adjusting the range of duties covered by Compliance. We also keep Compliance employees up to date in terms of knowledge and skills. For example, 20 employees from Deutsche Telekom’s German and international Compliance departments had the opportunity to take part in a wide-ranging compliance training course (“Certified Compliance Manager”). Due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was held exclusively online for the first time this year.
To prepare our Compliance organization for increasingly digital and agile ways of working, we launched the “Compliance Next Level” transformation initiative in 2020. The initiative included a virtual workshop to identify future requirements, tools and skills for the Compliance organization, and the compilation of compliance requirements from employees already working in agile structures.
The measures are designed and supervised by Group Compliance Management.
