In order to address the impact of demographic change, we create conditions which help to maintain the employability of our personnel at all stages of life and secure the availability of qualified employees. We support our employees and leaders with workshops, health and sports programs, age-appropriate shaping of the workplace and demographic analyses. In 2013, for example, we included the topic “leadership in times of demographic change” in our basic skill enhancement for new leaders.
