Career at thyssenkrupp | Engineering | innovation | People at thyssenkrupp | Sustainability and climate protection | To date women are underrepresented in many areas - including in industrial companies such as thyssenkrupp. On the occasion of international women's day, we spoke to Dr. Anika Stein about her passion for special machinery. As head of Defense Systems at thyssenkrupp Marine Systems in Kiel, she heads a team of top-class engineers and technicians. Together with her colleagues, Dr. Stein builds submarines. She explains why each submarine is a unique result of technical expertise and teamwork - and why she pursues her career in a male-dominated industry.

Digitalisation and industry 4.0 | innovation | People at thyssenkrupp | Increasing digitalization has already changed our everyday work enormously. We have access to information anytime and anywhere. However, digitization on its own can only partly improve our everyday working life. There are further enormous possibilities to make processes more efficient, collaboration easier and development processes more creative. In February 2020, thyssenkrupp employees, therefore, launched an interactive fair on "New Ways Of Working".

Company | innovation | For the future of thyssenkrupp, our colleagues around the world are working to make our company more flexible, efficient, and powerful. Our #newtk strategy focuses on this performance idea. For example, in the implementation and observance of tax regulations within a major group like thyssenkrupp. The value added tax regulations alone are so extensive that from now on digital "tax advisors" will help us fight our way through the tangle of regulations and tax numbers. Switching to digital tools brings greater accuracy to the auditing process and gives our employees more time for planning and strategy tasks instead of having to spend hours on end checking invoices.
