What we’re about
At Telefónica / O2, we never let the grass grow under our feet. We’re constantly asking ourselves how we can make the opportunities of digitalisation accessible in the best possible way. For our customers, our employees and our company.
We’re driving digitalisation in Germany
We connect millions of people with our mobile brands and offer our customers mobile freedom in the digital world. Plus, as a leading telecommunications provider, we’re playing a vital part in shaping digitalisation in Germany. Our fixed and mobile networks form the backbone for the digital transformation of business and society. And our around 8,500 employees in Germany help drive the transformation day in, day out – in our own company too. #ProudToBeTelefónica
We take climate change seriously
The telecommunications industry has a significant role to play in achieving climate targets. We are very much aware of our responsibility and have set ourselves ambitious targets: We want to be climate-neutral by 2025 at the latest. So we’re taking a stand on sustainable action and are ahead of the curve in the German telecoms sector.
Our policy is also reflected on the customer and employee side: In our product portfolio, sustainable smartphones and accessories are here to stay; and with our key initiative “70% less travel”, we’re sending a clear signal that the environment is a priority and cutting business trips right back to the necessary minimum. We’re committed to responsible handling of our resources and rely on powerful but energy-efficient hardware. Our old office equipment is recycled in an environmentally responsible way and refurbished for reuse. While the way we work is anyway predominantly #DigitalByDefault, we are continuously replacing the use of paper with digital services in our customer dealings too.
We make a difference – together
We are constantly proving how strong we are as a team, whether in our cooperation in the workplace or when it comes to taking responsibility for shaping the future. We don’t want to grow at any price, we want to grow sustainably and do our bit for society. And we can only do that with a strong team spirit.
We are a team, regardless of where we work. The pandemic situation didn’t make it easy for us either at first: Personal interaction with colleagues across teams and departments is something we take for granted. Flat hierarchies and the open office concept enhance our open and agile approach and we value the interaction in dynamic meetings. But of course digitalisation makes our remote working so much easier and, thanks to convenient tools, we keep our team spirit alive and well - with innovative formats and events like “Virtual Coffee” or our “Digital O2 Tower Run”, where we clocked up steps for a good cause throughout Germany. Regular meetings with the management team on issues that affect us and to answer questions help bring us even closer together as a company. Because one thing is clear: We’re not in this alone. Our motto in these times of Covid is “virtually together, regardless”. Together, we can make a big difference – this applies not only to our company but also for a good cause. Social engagement is a key part of the way we see responsible-minded behaviour and is firmly anchored in our corporate culture. Within our Corporate Volunteering Programme, we have numerous opportunities to support social projects and initiatives. For example, you might want to get involved in the field of digital inclusion, as we aim to inspire everyone to join the digital world and boost their digital skills. Or you can volunteer for seasonal campaigns and get stuck in with Telefónica colleagues from all over the world on our annual International Volunteering Day, to make a lasting contribution to society and the environment.
We’re getting fit for the future
At Telefónica / O2, we recognise change as an opportunity. Which is why ongoing development is a big deal in our company. We create a working environment in which everyone can continuously build up valuable new skills at their own pace. With internal job changes, job rotations and digital learning formats, we encourage professional and personal growth. That’s how we stay high-performing and flexible, and that’s how we keep ourselves collectively fit for the future.
But the crucial factor for your further development is what you make of it. Our company is big on self-initiative. Our AI-based technology BEYOND allows you to actively manage your development and within a few seconds will find you development opportunities in the company that match your personal skills profile. Other platforms and formats like our Smart Work Community or LinkedIn Learning enable access to extensive learning content and help you to continually expand your horizons. Ongoing, targeted exchange between employees and managers is another important component of forward-looking learning in our organisation.
We offer a flexible, diverse working environment
We live in a complex and fast-paced world, in which the only real constant is change. Our answer to that? An agile, flexible way of working along with cross-functional and versatile teams. Telefónica Germany / O2 offers a dynamic working environment, in which every day is different. We expect and encourage autonomous working and give the chance to be part of the digital revolution, to contribute own ideas and drive specialist topics.
How you structure your working day is up to you. Whether you’re a morning person or a night owl, everyone knows best when and where they are most productive. And how is up to you too: Be bold, dare to try something new – because it’s the result that counts. It’s our belief that diverse work teams are crucial to reflect the reality of society and respond to its needs with more vision. We think outside the box and look at challenges from different perspectives. In doing so, we come up with solutions that take us forward as a team, make us stronger, and benefit as many of our fellow human beings as possible. But even we allow ourselves breaks and enjoy moments of digital detox. To pause for a moment. Take a step back and reflect. So we don’t lose sight of the big picture. To spend time with our loved ones and recharge our batteries for new challenges to come. #WeAreTelefónica
