To what extent has the advice of an older colleague helped you?
Every day at Rheinmetall, I enjoy being able to gain experience and tips from different age groups and also being able to provide tips for others.

How could you help an older colleague with your knowledge?
The more we ask, the more understanding we have for each other - that's what makes us strong here. Everyone is a professional in their own field - regardless of age. Shared experience makes everyone better.

Do you prefer working with older or younger colleagues, and why?
In my day-to-day work as Council Chairman, I have a lot of contact with younger and older colleagues. Since works council work is about both good training and experience, I can often give "fresher" works council members good food for thought and share experiences thanks to my experience. In the area of consulting, I help on a daily basis with expertise and experience.

In many ways. For example, one benefits from the expertise, life experience and wisdom of experienced, older colleagues.

How could you help an older colleague with your knowledge?
For example, when an older colleague showed interest in my expertise, I was able to enter into a kind of mentoring relationship with full respect and offer advice and support.

Do you prefer working with older or younger colleagues and why?
Both! Younger colleagues often bring fresh ideas and technology knowledge, while older colleagues bring more experience and wisdom. Accordingly, it is important for me to work with people of different age groups in order to benefit from diverse perspectives and skills.

To what extent has the advice of an older colleague helped you?

The advice of older colleagues has been particularly helpful to me when dealing with complex tasks. With their professional experience and expertise, they have often been able to give me good tips and tricks. As a result, I was able to complete various tasks more quickly and also in a much more goal-oriented manner.

How could you help an older colleague with your knowledge?
I was able to support older colleagues primarily with technical questions, such as how to use Excel or Word more effectively. As a result, I was also able to contribute to the fact that some tasks can now be completed more quickly and in a more goal-oriented manner.

Do you prefer working with older or younger colleagues, and why?
In my opinion, both have their charm. I enjoy working with both older and younger colleagues. I think that a team should always be a healthy mix of both generations. The older employees have the necessary knowledge and expertise, and the younger colleagues often have new, good ideas about how various processes can be optimized.
