Continuous development & improvement

At Beiersdorf we’re committed to the long-term growth of our employees, developing the majority of our top executives and senior managers from within. Because we hire people who enjoy being challenged, we set ambitious functional and behavioural targets and give individuals a broad scope of responsibility early on. Importantly, to bring them up to speed in their jobs, this is underpinned with functional and cultural onboarding plans, buddy schemes and mentors, constructive feedback and on-going training programmes so people can expand their capabilities and grow in confidence over time. We’re great believers in rewarding achievement and offer on-the-job development and individual career plans to those that deliver. If relevant, we help address skills gaps or individual development areas through formal and informal training and provide mentors and coaches if needed. Our culture is collaborative, and we work as a team to deliver our goals, but we offer plenty of opportunities for individuals to make their mark and grow their careers both nationally and internationally. 

There is hardly any hierarchy at our relatively small company. I can build on my own experience and knowledge instead of following instructions. For me, Beiersdorf is a unique employer with great brands and many wonderful people.

Committing long-term

We’re committed to the long-term growth of our employees and have set ourselves the goal of developing at least 90% of our top executives and at least 75% of our senior managers internally. We help ambitious individuals to identify their strengths and give them the support they need to realise their ideal career path within the business. We’re also great believers in rewarding achievement and offer on-the-job development and individual career plans to those that deliver. If relevant, we help address skills gaps or individual development areas through formal and informal training and provide mentors and coaches if needed. People are actively encouraged to progress and possible next career steps are discussed openly and honestly.
