HR Structure

As of December 31, 2016, Vonovia had 7,437 employees (December 31, 2015: 6,368 employees), 5,646 of whom were male. As well as the integration of Süddeutsche Wohnen (SÜDEWO), the increase in our number of employees is mainly attributable to the continuous growth of our technical service for our craftsmen’s organization and our residential neighborhood organization. The significantly higher proportion of male employees in our company reflects the size of our technical service, which mainly consists of male employees.

Our approach to HR management takes into consideration the specific needs of different business areas and occupations. Accordingly, there are different approaches to recruiting, but also different contracts and works agreements for the individual business areas. Nearly all of our employees are covered by works agreements, which set out most of our rules and regulations. 102-41

Through our merger with GAGFAH S.A. and our integration of SÜDEWO, over the last two years our HR activities have focused on the development of structures and uniform processes. We will continue to pursue these activities in 2017.

Since the spring of 2016, HR management has been under uniform control throughout the Group. The structures of the works councils will be consolidated and standardized during 2017.
