In the new digital world, it is often forgotten what a decisive role the digital skills of managers and specialists will play.

Real transformation can succeed when the right people are in the right positions. Then both the individual and the organization flourish. I am excited that with its 5-C model People Investor has found an approach to “crack this nut” and to break new ground in recruiting. The most effective investments in sustainability are investments in employees with a solid and convincing sustainability mindset.

Drawing on my extensive experience as a human resources manager and consultant, I have been accompanying people in challenging life situations for many years.

Sustainability in a company is a very multifaceted topic. Not only ecological and financial sustainability counts, but social sustainability is also just as important for a company.

Dipl. Betriebsökonom FH, Entrepreneur, Member of the Board of Directors
More than 10 years ago I was allowed to experience such an "investment" myself - one of the most decisive directions for my professional and personal development. It is a pleasure for me not only to cultivate this leverage within my own sphere of influence, but to promote it more broadly through the connection with People-Investor.
