Efficiency, short decision-making channels and decentralised responsibilities are key criteria of Lufthansa’s management philosophy. These principles are also applied to checking, monitoring and controlling the development of the management structure.
Lufthansa monitors not only the quantitative development of management positions, but also management’s composition. For Lufthansa, internationalism, flexibility, a significant share of women and a balanced distribution of age groups are important criteria which are cultivated continuously.
Personnel marketing and selection
Lufthansa’s application process is characterized by the highest possible degree of openness as well as efficiency; it is transparent and therefore fair.
Its goal is to attract competent and committed employees. This is why we present a realistic picture of the tasks within our company with all their benefits but also possible disadvantages or strains, so that applicants can make decisions that are sustainable on a long-term basis.
We not only tell the applicants what we expect of them but we also give them the opportunity to clearly assess their own capabilities and competencies. In this way we make it possible for the tasks to suit the expectations and qualifications of the candidates.
We use high-quality and efficient tools and procedures for our personnel recruitment and selection. This ensures that we will receive differentiated and substantiated information that makes an objective evaluation possible. The Internet plays a substantial role in our application process, since we significantly process applications via the “Be-Lufthansa.com” portal. The portal also enables possible applicants to use the Training Area to prepare for our online tests, both anonymously and free of charge.
