Telekom Deutschland GmbH has implemented holistic staff restructuring and transfer management system since 2017. Its aim is to win employees over to the idea of a career change early on. In cases where tasks are being eliminated in the near or medium term, or different skills are required, the affected employees will be given advice proactively regarding opportunities for a professional reorientation. Managers are also actively involved in the change process. Together with them, internal and external employment alternatives are considered and personal labor market profiles developed. In addition, assistance is provided for individual application processes and – where necessary – training offered. Since 2018, around 1,000 employees nationwide received advice in the Germany segment . Approximately two thirds of them were able to find new options through these measures.
