16.03.2020 Focus on welfare of the employee

BEUMER Group, Beckum, Germany, emphasises that its staff are considered to be a part of the BEUMER family, rather than being a resource. Employees should develop further and not be consumed (like a resource). This is why the company calls its human resources department “People and Culture” (P&C). Christian Schneider has been appointed group director of P&C.

A lawyer by trade, he will in his new position be responsible for the people and culture division of the corporate group. The tasks of the department include comprehensive employer branding, recruiting, university marketing, presentation at trade fairs as well as the support of students during their internships, for final theses or during their dual studies. Special emphasis is placed on the development and training of employees, especially managers, as this is the only way to ensure that the principles according to which BEUMER Group is managed are also firmly anchored in the globally active organisation. Thus the employees of the P&C department are also direct contacts for the managers, employees and the works council.

Born in Hamburg, Schneider brings extensive experience to his new position. He took his first steps in human resources management at a leading magazine publisher with around 6600 employees. He then worked for about one and a half years as a clinic consultant in the field service of a chemical product manufacturer for the health sector. At the same company, he was then given responsibility for the international subsidiaries as head of human resources, a position he held for almost 12 years. Additionally, for two years he was director human resources at a leading producer of gases for industry, medicine and environmental protection, where he was responsible for almost 1800 employees. Before joining BEUMER, he worked for around three years as managing director human resources and legal affairs at a major fashion provider.
