But due to the complexities and dynamics of local and global competitors as well as the need to succeed, employees are experiencing increased levels of pressure. At the same time, companies save by reducing the number of staff, leading to an increase in responsibilities for those who remain. Some employees are no longer able to meet these demands and expectations. As a result, their performance levels are dropping and the rate of sick leave is increasing.

This German language program goes beyond the scope of recruiting, hiring, and retaining the best people. It examines how business leaders can ensure the performance and commitments of their employees under these conditions and not jeopardize their motivation or health.
