Intercultural Readiness Assessment

In the era of demographic shifts, the significance of diversity, especially within the workplace, has become increasingly essential. Diversity among employees enriches the workplace with a broad array of perspectives and ideas, playing a pivotal role in the long-term prosperity and adaptability of businesses. Companies that proactively champion diversity efforts not only foster a more inclusive work culture but also gain access to a wider talent pool, enhance their capacity for innovation, and improve their ability to adjust to evolving market conditions. This transition towards greater diversity is not merely a reflection of ethical principles but also a strategic imperative for businesses aiming to maintain a competitive edge in a sustainable manner.

The consequent increase of "Cultural Diversity" is a key response to demographic change and forms the foundation of the mission shared by socialbee and the 4C GROUP. We have recognized that diversity can offer real value to any company. CEO Zarah Bruhn is not only the founder of socialbee, where she and her team focus on integrating refugees into the job market, but she also serves as the Federal Commissioner for Social Innovation at the BMBF and on the Council for Sustainable Development. Realizing early on that we share a common set of values, we are particularly pleased that Zarah has been acting as a Supervisory Board member for the 4C GROUP since 2021.
