The Lufthansa Group assumes responsibility for its employees, also in times of major change. COMPASS, the programme launched in January 2013 to help staff and managers make successful career transitions, reflects the Group’s long-term human resource strategy. To this end, Lufthansa works closely with renowned, globally active recruitment consultancies. More than 500 of the Group’s employees are currently taking advantage of this counselling service.
COMPASS is geared not only towards employees whose jobs are at risk, but also towards those who are seeking a new professional challenge. They may wish to change jobs within the Group or they may be looking for career opportunities outside the company.
During a confidential exploratory discussion with external coaches, prospective jobseekers receive expert advice and comprehensive information about the range of job offers and opportunities available, without having to disclose their identity. The placement service is provided for up to six months and includes an assessment of the employee’s current personal and professional status as well as an analysis of their strengths and opportunities. If the job search is successful, the personal coach supports the staff member for a further three months to ensure a good start to the new job.
At the beginning of July, using its own network of contacts, the Group also set up an industry-related job market, which shows attractive vacancies at partner companies such as BASF, Volkswagen and Deutsche Bahn and enables Group employees to search for jobs anonymously. To date, more than 6,000 staff members have viewed job openings. Fifty per cent of those who applied for a job through the placement service were invited to attend a job interview. COMPASS thus plays an important part in shaping the changes that will be required to secure the future of the Group in a socially responsible manner.
