Business relationships with Group management
roup incorporates various Group and service functions that, with a few regulatory exceptions, perform functions for the entire roup. The costs of Group functions are not passed on to the business units (no “Group charges”).
Expenses for administrative service units are only passed on if these result from direct service relationships with the business units or expenditure that is directly attributable to a specific service. This applies in particular to expenditures on the use of real estate, central purchasing and technology services and for centrally consolidated insurance expenses.
The Group job market performs an important central function.obService GmbH employs staff whose jobs in German companies of roup have been lost, with the aim of finding another job for them internally. It therefore plays a key role in the functioning of the -internal labor market. eitarbeit GmbH provides companies in roup with temporary employees.
