Executive Vice President
HR Coordination & Shared Services
The head of HR Coordination & Shared Services considers the interdisciplinarity of the topic to be particularly important and attaches importance to bringing the various responsible positions together at one table. Bertelsmann does not see health management as isolated individual measures, but as the coordinated cooperation of all key operational and strategic departments as well as the individual health areas. Only through a joint and systematic commitment can health management be considered comprehensive and ensure that employees are healthy and motivated in the long term.
In-house Medical Services Department
In compliance with statutory health protection requirements, company medical services support and advise companies and carry out the necessary measures including general medical care and preventative check-ups. Services are available to all employees, representatives, as well as company management. In addition, Bertelsmann medical services are available to all Bertelsmann companies nationwide (Germany) to consult on questions relating to external company medical supervision.
