Outlook for 2017

In 2017, we will continue to work on integrating within our organization the companies which we acquired over the last few years from the point of view of their structures and corporate culture. The development of uniform HR management processes and the standardization of works agreements are key areas of focus here. Moreover, we intend to continue to demonstrate that we are an attractive employer and, with this goal in mind, we plan to launch an employer branding campaign in 2017. At the same time, we will deepen our activities in the fields of HR development and succession planning.

In addition, over the next few years we will significantly increase our volume of personnel in our craftsmen’s organization and our residential neighborhood sector. To achieve these goals, Vonovia is using proactive and innovative recruitment channels such as mobile recruiting alongside conventional recruitment channels. Vonovia is also pursuing a refugee integration project in cooperation with the German Federal Employment Agency (Bundesagentur für Arbeit).
