Thus, Markus Dohm held a lecture about the success factor personnel competence on the summit at BayArena Leverkusen, Germany in November 2015. He taught managers of the national soccer league and leaders in German basketball, ice hockey and handball how dynamic and practice-oriented advanced training in professional sports can master entrepreneurial challenges.

Being the leading platform for information exchange in sports business for market players, SPONSORs chose the topics most recent concepts in CRM, working with young talents, quality management and innovative marketing approaches for the SPONSORs Clubmanager Summit.

TÜV Rheinland innovation conference in Cologne

Innovation Conference of TÜV Rheinland

Education and Employment 4.0

High-quality cast symposium discussed at the Innovation Conference impact of digitalization on the working environment of the future / Exemplary innovation projects demonstrate how to use technology

On 22 October this year, Markus Dohm, Executive Vice President Academy & Lifecare Germany at TÜV Rheinland AG invited to an ‘Expedition into the future of our working environment’ more than 200 experts from business, science and politics at Flora Köln, Germany. Under the heading ‘Education and Employment 4.0’ high-quality speakers discussed major trends related to the digitization of the economy and its impact on the future of work. Among the participants were in addition to numerous company representatives also CEO of TÜV Rheinland AG Dr. Michael Fübi, TÜV Rheinland CHRO Thomas Biedermann and Professor Dr. Bruno O. Braun, Chairman of the Board of TÜV Rheinland AG. The event was held under the patronage of Federal Minister Andrea Nahles, whose Ministry published a ‘Green Paper’ on the subject (German language).

Among the prominent speakers was the Archbishop of Cologne, Cardinal Rainer Woelki. He stressed in his welcoming speech the importance of education, particularly with regard to the integration of the many refugees and called on the participants to accept more ‘alternative educational biographies’ in the company.

Numerous experts, including Prof. Dr. Jutta Rump, Director of the Institute for Employment and Employability at Ludwigshafen University, and Prof. Dr. Torsten Oltmanns of Roland Berger Strategy Consultants, showed that the digitalization will affect much more our working environment and jobs as currently already noticed. Intensive discussions between speakers and participants made clear that the uncertainty about the further development in many companies is huge. A conclusion: The continuous training of their employees and a high flexibility are becoming increasingly important for companies considering the changes. At the same time, ‘social innovations’ are needed beside the technical ones to exploit the potential of technology usefully and employee-friendly.

How digitization may now be used in everyday business, innovative projects presented on market stalls. Examples were the use of virtual reality in construction projects, new learning concepts for apprentices or new opportunities for ‘social business’ via platforms that bring together employees, customers and partners. TÜV Rheinland also presented the own solutions in the field of Workplace Learning Solutions.

‘We took the participants of the event on an expedition into the still new terrain of the digitalized working environment to give them the so important suggestions and impulses on this future issue. In this way, we have managed to raise our profile in front of proven experts as a leading service provider of further education and occupational health management’ says Markus Dohm.
