Personnel Development

A firmly established component of our global talent management is a centrally coordinated instrument for developing managers: in cooperation with Harvard Business School – one of the world’s leading business schools – we continued our “Maximizing Leadership Impact” program in 2012. A total of 35 managers took part in two modules, both running over several days.

We also continued the program that we developed in cooperation with St. Gallen University. To prepare trainees and young talents for the tasks ahead of them, we offer an additional program dealing with personal development.

There was another extensive range of training sessions and seminars in 2012 for employees at all levels. It comprised approximately 60 interdisciplinary subjects in eight different categories, such as Communication & Cooperation and Project Management. Our After Work Academy is our new compact format, enabling participants to get to know the extensive range of training sessions in small slices. The two-hour sessions, with subjects changing every month, are held immediately following the close of the working day.

Within the framework of our efforts to attract and further young talents, our trainee programs offer promising university graduates an alternative opportunity to start a successful career with the Fresenius Group alongside the classic channel of direct job entry. The programs combine challenging on-the-job assignments with internal and external training modules.

Fresenius Kabi, for example, has launched a global trainee program with international orientation. The trainee programs at HELIOS serve to prepare university graduates for future management positions. During the two-year course, trainees spend time at several hospital locations.

The HELIOS Academy and the HELIOS Educational Centers provide all professional groups with extensive opportunities for competency-oriented training and continuing education. Future university graduates can deepen their knowledge and practical clinical skills by using the HELIOS Student Academy’s “Students at HELIOS” online platform.

In cooperation with Donau-University Krems in Austria, Fresenius Medical Care provides an extra-occupational MBA program for qualified employees without education in economic sciences. This especially allows scientists and physicians to prepare for management and executive functions.

Globally active companies like the Fresenius Group place very high importance on good collaboration among people of different nationalities and diverse cultures. That is why we promote mobility among our employees and give them the opportunity to work in a foreign country. We have a number of ways to prepare them for these jobs and to increase their awareness of, and sensitivity to, cross-cultural differences, including language courses and intercultural training sessions for employees and family members traveling with them. In the other direction, we also give support to foreign employees coming to Germany. The program “Living + Working in Germany,” for instance, offers newcomers language courses and help in dealing with formalities.
