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
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.
