As a founding partner, T-Systems provides strategic and financial support for the 42 Berlin programming school. Driving digitization forward – that works with excellently qualified employees. To this end, T-Systems not only invests in the development of our experts, but also in the recruitment of new tech talents.
42 Berlin is a programming school with an innovative learning concept – no professors, no lectures, no exams, no tuition. Instead, students advance their software development skills independently through projects and peer learning. Age, origin and prior education do not matter. Anyone can take advantage of the opportunity to gain a foothold in this promising career field. T-Systems' commitment thus enables many people to enjoy equal opportunities and participate in a digital future.
Adel Al-Saleh, CEO
“T-Systems invests in talent, skills and education! Not only internal tech trainings – but we’re also partnering with Coding School 42 Berlin. We live in fast-changing, growing economies, the market and our industry change continuously and with these, the needed skills change as well. Closing skill-gaps is a priority within T-Systems. We offer for our people at T-Systems the multimillion Learning Program “Digitize!” and we take new steps and invest in education like the partnership with 42 Berlin, where people get the chance to get in touch with up-to-date technology and software development.”
Georg Pepping, HR Director
“At T-Systems, we believe that everyone can grow without limits. And we question common stereotyped thinking. It's not about personal background or age, it's about ATTITUDE and AMBITION. For me, talents have an open-minded attitude, and they should burn for clients and technology. Equal opportunities are an important topic at Deutsche Telekom, as is participation in the labor market. Far too often HR managers look at smooth-ironed CVs. I am very much looking forward to the partnership with 42 Berlin and to more diversity and fairness.”
Jan Krellner, Senior Vice President people eXperience & projects
“At T-Systems, we see it as our mission to create the best people experience along the entire employee journey. This applies to our existing and all possible future employees – because they are our most valuable assets. That’s why recruiting, and development are among our focus topics. The collaboration with diverse tech talents will enrich our people business in an exciting way. I am highly looking forward to engaging with 42 students, learning from each other and opening doors to compelling projects.”
Dr. Andreas Greis, Senior Vice President Digital Solutions
“As T-Systems, we are strongly relying on people who inspire and guide our customers within their individual digitization journey. One excellent example of a valuable digitization project is the largest open-source project implemented in Germany on behalf of the German government: the Corona Warn App. Developed by T-Systems and programmed in cooperation with SAP in just 50 days, the App helps people, governments and the WHO throughout Europe and even worldwide. To make such exciting and socially relevant projects successfully happen, we are consistently investing in our T-Systems employees and their individual future skills.”
