Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) offer employees the opportunity to network with colleagues with similar interests, backgrounds or fields of activity and to jointly expand their knowledge and skills. Exchanging ideas with colleagues at network meetings is a first step to enrich your personal and professional development.
