The motivation behind the new job
Isabelle, why did you accept the position as Senior Advisor?
Hoyer: “As a two-time founder, I have been very busy building and developing our own themes and teams for several years. At the same time, I have gained a lot of insight into the challenges and solution approaches in a variety of companies through our corporate partnerships, consulting projects and programs. I am now very much looking forward to, on the one hand, expanding my own horizons and looking beyond the confines of my day-to-day business and, on the other hand, hopefully being able to pass on many of these insights.”
Joachim, why did you appoint the position of Senior Advisor with a focus on diversity?
Schü: “A key point was the realization that while we have always hired competent people, regardless of gender, sexual orientation or identity, social background, religion or ethnicity, we were not actively doing anything for diversity in our company and were therefore also part of the problem. We made a clear decision as a company, in contrast to our previous way of doing things, to not only not have anything AGAINST diversity, but to actively promote and address the issue in our company. I have been inspired by colleagues who have taken a strong initiative in promoting the issue. We want to inspire employees who, through diversity of thought, also inspire our customers and make a contribution to equal opportunities at a social level.”
