With their abilities, ideas, and enthusiasm for our company and products, our employees are the rock on which our success is built. We seek to offer them the best-possible working conditions, which means they play a key role in how we conduct ourselves as a company. We treat each other with fairness and respect, promoting equal opportunity and individual diversity. We aim to further strengthen our performance-oriented corporate culture by focusing on talent development and performance management. But we also want our employees to stay healthy and able to work for a long time to come – even among the aging societies found in Germany, several other EU countries, the United States, and Japan.
