Human Resources Management

Highly skilled and motivated employees are the foundation for sustained growth. The challenge for human resources management at Fresenius is to meet this requirement when conditions are constantly changing. These changes are the result of increasingly important factors such as demographics, the transformation toward a service economy, skill shortages, and the compatibility of job and family.

We are constantly adapting our human resources tools to future needs. For instance, we established an internal Mentor Network for women at HELIOS and we expanded our collaboration with a mentor network for women in science and technology at universities in the state of Hesse in 2012. This network is viewed throughout Europe as a best-practice model for the efficient promotion of women at universities. It aims to promote the professional and personal development of aspiring female academics in the fields of mathematics, IT, science, and technology, and to open their eyes to potential career paths.

To find qualified employees and secure their loyalty, we consider it essential for them to be able to combine their professional career at Fresenius with their personal family life. That is why HELIOS, for instance, has increased the number of child daycare places it provides.

In Germany, we partly provide life work time accounts. Employees are able to save parts of their compensation or certain hours worked for a leave of absence at a later point in time. This leave can be flexibly used for further personal education purposes, for nursing leave to look after family members, or for phased early retirement.
