The Challenge

Volksbank Köln Bonn is facing major challenges in the area of personnel restructuring and digital transformation in the banking sector. How can a new, fresh spirit be created that reaches the broad workforce and makes them fit for the digital transformation?

Harnessing Leadership Potential

In the course of the digital transformation, Volksbank Köln Bonn has identified potential in managerial development and wants to use it. The aim is to create a new spirit, which should also be supported by modern formats in personnel development. But how can this be achieved and which format is the right one?


Volksbank Köln Bonn has experienced managers who are experts in their field. However, in dynamic times of digital transformation, new, emotional skills are needed that have not been trained before. How can managers develop further in grown structures, become more flexible and carry a new spirit throughout the company?

Strategic Staff

The new requirements in the banking sector require a profound re-engineering of personnel. As a result, the tasks of employees are becoming more demanding and comprehensive – both in day-to-day operations and in management. How can Job Enrichment and Job Enlargement be implemented while maintaining a positive corporate culture?
