Diversity is a priority for us

Our employees are as diverse as our work. We are convinced that the combination of different perspectives, opinions, cultural impressions, experiences, and values will enable us to exploit the potential that will make us successful.

Our forward-thinking approach, our curiosity and our commitment to continuous improvement are our driving force - with the aim of providing ever better medicine for ever more people. That's why we do everything we can to offer our employees a working environment they can identify with and which at the same time motivates them to develop both individually and as a team.

Mentoring Hessen

Mentoring Hessen is a joint project of Hessian universities and universities of applied sciences to advance the careers of women. The aim is to increase the percentage of women in attractive specialist and management positions in both academia and business. With the help of four different lines of support, young women are supported and guided through the decisive phases of their professional development – from student to professor! The close cooperation with renowned companies and research institutions also opens up career opportunities outside of academia.

„The more diverse we are, the more we can learn from each other, and the more successful we will be as a team. To be able to feel we belong and develop our full potential, we need to respect and value each other. That way, we can contribute most effectively to creating a future worth living for our patients across the globe.”
Helen Giza,CFO Fresenius Medical Care
