The number of Galenica employees continued to grow in the year under review, mainly due to the expansion activities in the Health & Beauty segment. As of the end of 2020, Galenica employed 7,205 people. Given the increasing number of employees, efficiency is a key topic when it comes to HR processes. Following the harmonisation of the various HR and working time regulations, the HR departments devoted their efforts in 2020 to process innovation and the digitisation of the different HR processes. Alongside the digital application processes that have already been introduced and the electronically supported reviews and appraisals, the focus is now on rolling out the electronic personnel file and tapping into new channels and opportunities to recruit specialists.
