Personnel Development

A firmly established component of Fresenius’ talent management is a centrally coordinated personnel development module, which is used for the top management executives throughout the world. In cooperation with the Harvard Business School, one of the leading business schools in the world, we have restructured the content offered to this group of employees. With the program “Maximizing Leadership Impact”, we focus even more on the leadership issue.

Another central component is the training of personnel in middle and lower management. Here, we have systematically developed the target-group-specific support for the various management levels. For the middle management, we have for example implemented an executive development program with the university of St. Gallen. Furthermore, we established a new program for trainees and young talents including aspects on personnel development as preparation on further tasks. We want to expand the content once again in 2012.

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.

A new global trainee program was implemented at Fresenius Kabi in 2011. It has an international orientation and focuses on finance, innovation and development, as well as compounding. The HELIOS trainee programs serve to prepare university graduates for future management positions within the HELIOS Kliniken Group so as also to meet the demand for management resources created by the Group’s ongoing growth. The trainees spend their two-year training at different hospital locations.

The HELIOS Academy and the HELIOS Educational Centers represent a comprehensive, competency-oriented training, and continuing education portfolio for all professional groups. The HELIOS Student Academy also provide students through its internet platform “Students at HELIOS” specific offers to deepen their know-how and their practical and clinical skills. Over 400 medical students annually complete at least one trimester of their Practical Year at one of the HELIOS academic teaching hospitals.

In cooperation with the Donau-University Krems in Austria, Fresenius Medial Care provides an extra-occupational MBA-program for qualified employees without education in economic sciences. This way, especially scientists and physicians will be prepared for management and executive functions.

In a global company like Fresenius, the close interaction among employees of different nationalities and with different cultures plays an important role. We therefore advance the mobility of our employees and offer them the opportunity to work in a foreign country. We support our employees and their family members who travel with them in developing awareness and sensitivity towards cultural differences by a wide range of preparatory measures such as intercultural training programs and respective language courses. The same applies for employees who come to Germany from our international locations. The program “Living + Working in Germany”, for instance, offers language courses and help with handling formalities.
