But what do people feel as important in their workplace? How do they imagine their perfect workstation and what should not be missing under any circumstances?

Because the perfect workplace looks a little different for everyone, we asked employees in a recent survey and here are the results:

Community office or fixed work area?

The working world of the future was the focus of “Zukunft Personal” in Cologne. How will we work in the future? And what does that mean for HR work today?

Demographic change. Generation X, Y and Z. And each of these generations brings new demands to the working world. But how big are the differences between the generations? And how is it possible to satisfy one generation without neglecting the other?
