With our groupwide diversity management programme we promote diversity within the Otto Group and make potential visible even where it is initially hidden. Our measures are aimed at the different genders and ages, at internationality and people with disabilities.
Groupwide measures range from diversity conferences and development programs for promising female staff to employment concepts for the retired. In addition, there is a large number of individual commitments within individual Otto Group companies, such as target group-specific seminars or mentoring programmes, various networks such as PLAN F, the network for women in business, the network for fathers, the network representing the interests of employees aged 50+ – #experienced, MORE* (the groupwide network of the LGBTIQ* community) and the Otto Group Diversity Community.
The Otto Group aims to offer women exciting career prospects and to increase the proportion of women in management positions. This also includes the reconciling the job with different phases of life and personal interests. Flexible working time models and the technical infrastructure for mobile working enable us to create the right conditions for this. Targeted support is provided by programmes and initiatives such as the groupwide development programme for women, Boost Your Career, or develop<HER>, the educational format developed from PLAN F, the women's network of OTTO and Otto Group Holding, which is aiming to get women interested in digital topics.
