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.

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.
