Our People & Culture department, next to routine administrative or payroll tasks, therefore has three core duties to achieve sustainability targets within People & Culture.
1. WIN: recruiting new employees
2. KEEP: retaining new employees
3. DEVELOP: provide professional training and development of employees
Naturally, professionals want to be guided. And this is a skill to be acquired.
People & Culture is the responsible division for staff and company culture and focuses on strategic, conceptual and overarching Group-wide tasks while co-ordinating an exchange of knowledge and best practices.
Conceptualisation of new models on flexible working hours
Workplace design (e.g., ergonomic workplace)
Mental Health in Health Management as a focus topic
Events (e.g., Fail Forward Session)
Flexibility of working hours
Each colleague has their own strengths which should be encouraged within the meaning of sustainability. The development opportunities are diverse. Be it through the experience gained on the job, networking, on-the-job coaching, or formal learning. Moreover, we provide digital and in-person learning options to all colleagues.
Additionally, we offer tailored programmes to selected junior recruits, experienced professionals, managers and executives. If we consider a person to have marked potential, we offer personalised continued professional development opportunities to this person to fill advancing in-house positions.
Mandatory compliance training
Lean management qualification
Outcome: A strong employer brand and the relevant contribution towards the company’s goals.
„Everyone has the right to effective leadership!“
We routinely offer three CPD programmes (FIEGE Junior Programme, FIEGE Professional Programme, and FIEGE International Team) for junior staff and seasoned executives to promote talent where we spot it.
On the one hand, we wish to anchor an understanding of what leadership means on all of our managerial levels while on the other increase the company’s performance efficiency. For this reason, we have further expanded the Leadership@FIEGE programme at the level of branch and department heads.
To further expand the skills of managers and support personnel when assuming responsibility: For this, over 1,320 executives are scheduled to be trained in leadership skills in 2023.
Wherever these staff are deployed, it will be possible to learn and practice together through needs-focused learning nuggets anytime, and anywhere.
Branch locations and central areas may launch a Lead-O-Meter, a digital leadership feedback tool, which helps to further develop their leadership skills.
And even special departmental topics are increasingly included (e.g., qualification to become an Energy Scout).
The language academy and the international CPD formats will be developed further.
Managers of all levels may, at no cost, book in-house moderated workshops with their teams to develop their leadership and working together – together.
To us, diversity and inclusion are an opportunity and commitment at the same time, as our society has never been this diverse. We all benefit from these achievements, experiences, and points of view. They offer potential to us as a family business to grow and position ourselves in a new way. FIEGE is colourful. And we show that with pride.
What is the long-term impact from work on one’s physical and mental health? How can we improve the safety of employees, thus preventing absence?
