During the Covid-19 crisis, the selection process for filling executive positions was digitalized. We refined our DB role model so that a candidate’s fit with our strategy and employee and leadership concept can be reviewed when the position is filled. In 2020, we selected internal talent as part of a digital assessment center, and we offered virtual formats for networking and increasing visibility. In addition to our management and project management career paths, our internal career options were expanded to include an equivalent third career path: the DB expert career, which offers experienced employees with key expertise attractive opportunities for further development. Our campaign Leadership rocks! helps support and call for more diversity in DB Group. With exciting interviews and videos, the campaign showcases examples of women in management positions who are leading the way. The “Frau Dich!” (Woman up!) initiative also plays a role in inspiring and motivating women to aim for management positions with individual career advice for women.
