    We rely on the knowledge of our employees – and the share and transfer of this knowledge among them. If one of the employees gets a new job or retires, it is important to keep the expertise in the team. Nevertheless, the professional experience gained over many years cannot be squeezed into a Word file. It takes several steps to ensure a sustainable knowledge transfer. In this direction, we have built up a moderated process by which our employees can pass on their expertise, called the “Leaving Expert Debriefing” (LED). The method is a decisive step on the way to making the individually acquired treasure trove of knowledge and experience available to successors within the company. Learn from the testimonial carousel below how different colleagues experience this process:

    To embed diversity even further into our company culture, to cherish multiple perspectives in our daily work and to embrace the enormous potential that diversity offers in all our projects, we are organizing a new series of LGBT*IQ awareness sessions (thanks PROUT AT WORK-Foundation for the great support!). The virtual workshops are open to all our employees and two events have already taken place. Over 650 colleagues shed a light on today’s situation of LGBT*IQ people at work, consequently reflecting on unconscious bias and stigma. Participants were equipped with a set of easy steps how everyone can contribute to a respectful environment and culture, especially for LGBT*IQ. The session was wrapped up with a question & answer round, where practical situations could be discussed in detail. Two other workshops are planned for the second half of the year. We are already looking forward!
