Human resources management

Highly skilled and motivated employees are the foundation for sustained growth. The ever increasing globalization of our markets has changed the parameters for human resources management at Fresenius. This involves factors such as demographics, the transformation toward a service society, and the compatibility of job and family. These issues are set to play an even greater role in the coming years and present new challenges for human resources management.

We are constantly adapting our human resources tools to future needs. In 2010, for instance, we are introducing life work time accounts to supplement our work time models in some business segments and in the Fresenius SE corporate center divisions in Germany. Under this scheme, employees can also credit their own contributions, such as holiday leave or parts of their compensation, into a life work time account in addition to their collectively bargained employment benefits. These accumulated credit balances can then be drawn on later flexibly for sabbaticals for higher education, further training measures, or for phased early retirement.
