How do Christian values, above all empathy and responsibility, fit together with the challenges of the economy? How viable is the idea of sustainable business ethics? What role do people play in a globally networked and increasingly digitized world of work?
In order to clarify questions like these, Kirsten Fehrs, Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Northern Germany, launched the dialogue initiative »Dialog Church and Business Hamburg« in 2014. Several times a year she invites personalities from church, business, politics, culture and science to discuss current topics.
As part of this initiative, HEINEKOMM 2018 developed and installed a discussion format especially for a younger target group who Young professionals .
Here, questions about how to shape the future are even more existential: How do young managers, company founders or creative people see their personal prospects? What do the growing demands on flexibility and further training mean for each and every individual? How much individual freedom is possible in the changing interplay of work and life?
HEINEKOMM selected the guests, took on the management of the invitations and gave impulses for the topics of the respective meeting. The »Young Professionals« format has now become a permanent fixture within the »Dialogue Church and Economy Hamburg« and will be continued.
»HEINEKOMM is the right place for anyone interested in unfamiliar constellations of conversation, surprising encounters and thus exciting prospects. The young professionals with whom we talked about digitization and more would like to have conversations in which the most varied of biographical and professional experiences lead to new questions, ideas and insights. «
