Sustainability Report 2017

Value-based Corporate Culture

At 50Hertz, we are successful because our employees are. Helping them to develop, promoting their commitment and health, involving them in decisions and guaranteeing equal opportunities for all, is an essential part of our corporate responsibility.

We have adopted the maintenance and further development of our value-based corporate culture as one of the top objectives for the company and made this the strategic basis for all personnel-related decisions. Responsibility for questions pertaining to human resource strategy in the extended Board of Management lies with Chief Human Resources Ofiicer Dr. Katharina Herrmann.

A business plan that is updated annually, based respectively on a fiveyear period, provides the framework for qualitative and quantitative personnel planning. Beyond collective agreements and works agreements, 50Hertz has committed itself to internationally established policies, to the core labour standards of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and the workers’ rights of the UN Global Compact.

Our workforce consisted of 226 female employees and 817 male employees on 31 December 2017. The average age of our employees is 43.2.

91 percent



of employees participated in our
third employee survey in 2017.

In 2017, we invited our employees to participate in a broad-based employee survey for the third time. 91 percent participated. Issues such as cooperation, cross-divisional processes and leadership behaviour were assessed. They were discussed openly from the Board of Management to the employees. The detailed results were discussed in workshops with the workforce in the first quarter of 2018. We will derive specific, company-wide fields of action and measures for the individual teams from the results.
