HR Report 2020
We all have a challenging business year behind us. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all of us and calls for rapid and yet well-considered actions, including in the area of HR.
The health of our employees is our highest priority. At the same time, however, business continuity has to be ensured. We were able to build on already existing flexibility measures and will link them after COVID-19 with the challenges emerging in the context of "New Work". In past years we have already introduced many solutions at Infineon that are now helping us take the next steps with our employees in returning to a new normal.
Another milestone this year was the successful acquisition of Cypress and the worldwide integration of over 6,000 employees. HR plays a central role here – in strategic, financial and cultural terms.
In addition we have further driven the evolutionary development of our HR strategy and HR department. People are in the center of our actions. Dedicated, healthy and successful employees are absolutely necessary if we are to retain and expand our leading position and thus shape a successful future for all of us. This has guided us in aligning our actions with expectations of the years to come. It is also reflected by our understanding “People create value. HR fosters people engagement”.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my personal gratitude to my predecessor Dr Marquardt for the many years of excellent collaboration and for a smooth handover.
I hope you enjoy reading our report in this unusual year.
Global Head of Human Resources
