"Everyone is a talent, no matter their age"
Marion Schick, HR Director Deutsche Telekom AG, explains how she is making older employees fit and what new opportunities are presenting themselves to managers.
For IT specialists, the move to T-Systems via outsourcing brings a whole host of specific benefits.
"I didn’t expect it to be like this," said Edgar Craubner, who joined T-Systems from MAN. "We were taken onboard as employees from the moment the company had signed the contract."
These new employees are fully satisfied with their new employer and proof this point by above-average loyalty to their employer – the best evidence that T-Systems’ intensive efforts to integrate new employees into the transfer process from the outset are paying off. The key instruments in this process are Information and dialog. Employees’ personal interests and questions are taken seriously and discussed in in-depth meetings and individual appointments. T-Systems’ HR experts describe each transfer step and each contractual detail in full. Jo Brobbel, who moved from Shell to T-Systems in the Netherlands: "There was a plan for everything. Whether salaries, bonuses, training services, operating sites or career development opportunities."
High level of acceptance and motivation.
A special transition team is responsible for these aspects. It focuses on workshops, mentoring programs and portfolio training. In addition, an international employee development concept, dedicated training centers and a broad CAMPUS program are used. The structural conditions are also exceptional: As an ICT provider with locations all around the world, T-Systems offers a whole range of opportunities for further professional development: "The wealth of measures on offer has led to an equally high level of acceptance and motivation among employees," stressed Norman Herz, Head of Human Resources at MAN IT Services.
