Corporate Communications and Investor Relations are the two Service Centers responsible for all stakeholder information and communication. The communication strategy is based on GF’s business strategy and supports the positioning of the Company. Communication with all GF stakeholders is active, open, and timely. If possible and permissible, employees are notified first.
March 2021 saw the implementation of Strategy 2025, accompanied by a wide range of communication activities for the different stakeholders. Among other things, the strategy also focuses on several sustainability issues, including water scarcity and climate change. Another important event was an online town hall meeting at the end of November in which several thousand employees took part. The event focused on the further development of the corporate culture – one of three key focus areas as part of Strategy 2025.
The new corporate video showing GF in a fresh, new light was extremely well received, particularly on social media. The modernization of internal communication channels is also underway. A new communication platform will include an app and will replace the current intranet starting from the middle of 2022. The popular employee magazine “Globe”, which rated extremely highly in an internal reader survey, will be relaunched at the beginning of 2022.
