15 employee building blocks
In April 2020, we decided to implement three further building blocks on the topic of unified knowledge.
Work is relocated to working from home
Thanks to the advanced digitalization of DB Group, tens of thousands of employees were able to move their work to their home at short notice during the Covid-19 pandemic. At the start of the pandemic, over 80,000 employees already had laptops and tablets equipped with the technology and tools required for efficient mobile working.
Housing campaign expanded
With a new digital housing exchange, DB Group is making it easier for its employees to access affordable housing. At the same time, our cooperation with other housing companies has grown and been updated from a contract perspective.
The housing campaign for vocational trainees is also continuing to take off. In February 2020, we opened the second residential home run by the nonprofit foundation Stiftung Auszubildendenwerk in Hamburg. Trainees now have access to 38 additional rooms in shared flats there.
New corporate wear
Since January 2020, about 43,000 employees with customer contact have been able to order their collection of new corporate wear. Production of the clothes started in spring 2020, subsequently up to 900,000 individual pieces have been sent out. From August 1, 2020, employees will be showing off their new outfits on trains and buses, at train stations and in travel centers. The collection consists of up to 80 individual pieces, mainly in burgundy and blue. Burgundy replaces the previous DB traffic red.
