Bertelsmann offers a number of different talent pools that foster the exchange between and development of executives and prospective managers across all divisions worldwide, thus encourages them to form and participate in Group-wide networks.
As a network member, in these pools, you’ll receive support for your personal development and advice on the next career steps to take. To start, we create an employee profile based on a personality assessment and an in-depth interview, which can then be used for further career planning. Should you switch to another division, role or country, you’ll receive advice and support from your talent pool manager. Furthermore, at various events you’ll have the opportunity to discuss strategic issues relevant to the Group with top managers. In addition to building up their personal networks, people often take home ideas for cross-divisional collaborations and synergies.
