„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.”

Diversity Charter

By signing the German "Charta der Vielfalt" (Diversity Charter) we are taking a strong stance for diversity and inclusion in our company. Various measures in our business segments also contribute to this. 

For example, we offer an education program specifically for women in leadership positions, where participants can also build a network. Furthermore, Helios Kliniken in Germany specifically trains employees to become integration managers, who support foreign colleagues on their arrival in Germany in dealing with authorities and in other situations.

In addition, the Group has various queer communities with contact points and regular meetings, numerous employee networks such as the Women's Initiative in Europe and the Employee Impact Group African Voices, and gender equality training for managers and employees.

Facts and Figures

The diversity of our markets and locations is also reflected in the workforce. All business segments attach great importance to equal opportunities for all employees in the workplace as well as in the application, selection and development procedures. And they also implement diversity concepts adapted to the requirements of the respective business models and regions.

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.
