Our business success is largely attributable to the knowledge, skills and passion of our employees. It is their ability to innovate and their willingness to embrace continuous professional and self-development that drive our position as a world-class innovation company. This is clearly reflected in our employer brand “Passion to innovate | Power to change,” which shows what the Bayer group expects from its employees and new hires but also what it can offer them. It translates Bayer’s mission statement “Science For A Better Life” into the world of work.
As a modern international employer, we offer our employees attractive conditions and wide-ranging individual development opportunities. A key aim of our personnel development strategy is to create an environment where all employees have the opportunity to develop their full potential. In the spirit of “lifelong learning”, we help employees in all fields broaden their knowledge and skills and keep up with the latest changes throughout their working lives. Support ranges from knowledge sharing and peer learning to programs that take up new trends and perspectives.
Thanks to our wide-ranging business activities, we offer employees throughout the Group great opportunities for global development. International assignments are also an important element in employee development.
A diverse employee structure is vital for our company’s competitiveness. By embracing diversity we improve our understanding of changing markets and consumer groups, gain access to a broader pool of talented people and benefit from the enhanced innovative and problem-solving abilities that are demonstrably associated with high cultural diversity. Mutual understanding and a gender and cultural balance, especially at management level, are important success factors. We have an inclusive approach: diversity is integrated into all relevant human resources processes and driven forward by the management.
