BONN, Germany -- Great boost for the German labor market: Deutsche Telekom is committing itself today to take on a total of 4,700 internally trained junior staff in the next three years under permanent employment contracts. The company also plans to recruit a total of 4,000 university graduates and experts by 2012, depending on the development of business. Deutsche Telekom is also showing stability in training. For example, a binding commitment has been made for a trainee ratio of 8.7 percent of the German workforce up to and including 2013. That means the Group is guaranteeing to take on up to 13,000 trainees and students on cooperative courses within the next four years.

"Deutsche Telekom's HR plan for the next few years highlights our intention to ensure the company's development is sustainable and forward-looking," stressed the CHRO, Thomas Sattelberger. "We are investing in personnel development. Talented young people - whether graduates or junior staff completing vocational training or cooperative study programs - show what they are capable of in everyday working life. They will play a major role in the necessary workforce restructuring within the Group. In this way, the company balances its age structure and ensures a constant supply of fresh ideas and fresh knowledge."
