48 Competitive workforceHR Big 4 and Group strategy Service culture Talent agenda HR@2012 Hallmarks: Top training provider and Bologna@Telekom. Vocational training and cooperative degree courses at Telekom. We have stood for outstanding in-company training and continuing education since long before the Bologna process was started. They are and remain the primary avenue for populating our talent pipeline with highly trained, motivated junior staff. We have been one of the biggest training providers in Germany for years. For 2010 to 2013, as in the prior years, we have set a trainee ratio of 8.7 percent of the workforce in Germany – a leading value. In 2011, we once again ranked among the leading DAX 30 com- panies, taking on some 3,300 young people for training courses or cooperative study programs. In training year 2011/2012, we have some 9,600 apprentices and students overall. Of these, some 1,200 are students on cooperative degree programs, which we offer in partnership with ten universities and other educational institutions. In addition, we have our own University of Applied Sciences, the Hochschule für Telekommunikation Leipzig (HfTL), where, besides the students in the cooperative and part-time degree programs, 260 full-time students are on Bachelors or Masters programs. Bologna@Telekom enables students to get an academic education on a part-time basis while they work. The aim of Bologna@Telekom is to contribute to the personal development of employees and ensure their employability and the supply of trained professionals for Telekom for the long term. At the start of the 2011 winter semester, more than 440 employees were studying part-time with support from the Group in terms of time and financing. Employees can choose between seven partner universities and 24 different degree programs in information and communications technology, business information systems, digital pioneering, and business administration. From 2012, we will add more attractive Masters programs to the offering. The number of supported employees will then increase to around 600 in total. Since June 2011, Deutsche Telekom has also facili- tated the part-time doctorate, thus meeting the increased interest from our employees in academic education and training. In 2011, the Group received recognition for its commitment with one of the most prestigious German awards in the field of professional education, the Initiative in Training and Development award. Entry-level training. Program for disadvantaged young people. We take our corporate and social responsibilities very se- riously at all training levels. In 2011, we offered 100 young people the opportunity to get a foot on the career ladder. We plan to give more young people solid prospects for beginning a career with the pilot project “My chance to get going,” which we are carrying out in collaboration with the German Federal Employment Agency, until at least 2012. In 2012, we plan to provide as many as 150 places. So far, the results of the project have been positive. Of the 66 young people who did an internship under this scheme in 2010, 48 (i.e., 75 percent) have started vocational training with us. 32 young people were even accepted directly into the second year of training. In 2011, Telekom received the Golden Victoria for Integration award for this commitment. i
