All executives abide by their shared leadership principles as expressed in practical behavioural terms in the HAWE model of competence. This also forms the basis for our employees' various options for professional and personal advancement.
Case-by-case advice from colleagues
Our executives form small groups to help each other resolve specific challenges. The regularity of these meetings and the feedback on the solutions' effectiveness generate a constant increase in competence.
All employees discuss their performance with their supervisor once a year in a structured meeting. One of the key topics in these meetings is the employee's professional development.
To gain ideas for their own professional development, executives can get detailed feedback from their employees, colleagues and superiors.
All executive positions are filled by means of a potentials analysis process. The process includes an individual development plan to assist in taking on the new job.
For subjects that require professional, individual support, a pool of external coaches is available.
An intranet portal provides all employees with a broad variety of training offers. Many of these are held by in-house experts, thus creating active knowledge transfer.
