Why Bayer

In a nutshell


Bayer is a global enterprise with core competencies in the Life Science fields of health care and agriculture. It is headquartered in Leverkusen, Germany.

At Bayer, we combine a professional, cosmopolitan approach with a culture of social responsibility. This special culture has developed over many decades, helping Bayer become one of the most attractive employers in the industrial sector.

Bayer pursues a value-based and sustainable human resources policy that combines social responsibility with a performance-oriented corporate culture. This human resources strategy is based on the Bayer Group’s values and leadership principles, which were introduced and implemented in 2010 under the acronym “LIFE” – which stands for Leadership, Integrity, Flexibility and Efficiency.

One of the measures adopted to strengthen the Leadership component of LIFE and promote performance orientation is an innovative training program we developed in 2011. This supports our managers in providing regular, constructive feedback on their employees’ work and conduct.

The goal is to establish a true feedback culture throughout the enterprise that promotes individual strengths, addresses existing development areas and thus enhances personal and professional growth over the long term.
