Today, he shares this knowledge to improve the quality of life of employees and customers.

Speaker Stefan Osthaus has held management positions in large companies at an early stage.

In his role as the person in charge, he dealt intensively with the problem and found that no matter what age, employees question the meaning and purpose of their work.

If they saw meaning in their work, they were not only more satisfied, but according to studies, they were also more satisfied with their salary, for example.
