Aenova strengthens HR with Tim Bauer as Senior Vice President Corporate HR

Starnberg, 31.03.2022

Tim Bauer has been the new Senior Vice President (SVP) Corporate Human Resources at Aenova's Starnberg site since September 2021. He is responsible for all human resources tasks for around 4,200 employees at the 16 locations of the Aenova Group worldwide. His first task is to strengthen the Aenova Group as an employer brand.

Since September 2021, Tim Bauer has been Head of Corporate Human Resources at the Aenova Group as SVP and a member of the Executive Leadership Team (ELT). His tasks include strengthening the employer brand of the Aenova Group with suitable measures and thus to increase the attractiveness of the company as an employer. Within a short period of time, Bauer launched the initiative "Our Aenova Values", which manifests the customer- and service-oriented mentality and the quality standards of the Aenova Group, internationally at all manufacturing sites of the pharmaceutical contract manufacturer.

Based on his many years of management expertise, including international experience, Tim Bauer relies on the personal interview as an important tool in HR work. Therefore, he attaches great importance to structured discussions between employees and supervisors to evaluate performance and potential. In addition, Aenova also uses 360-degree feedback. Training needs, internal talent management and succession planning for high-potential employees in key strategic positions are based on the results obtained with both instruments.

Tim Bauer has also already further developed recruiting at Aenova. "Despite modern tools such as artificial intelligence (AI), personal contact is essential for assessing talent and building trust," Tim Bauer is convinced, adding, "A structured onboarding process is equally essential to facilitate a new team member's entry and integrate them successfully and satisfactorily as quickly as possible." The conversion of remuneration to salary bands that will be based on international salary studies is also on his agenda.

Jan Kengelbach, CEO of the Aenova Group, summarizes the work of the new Senior Vice President Corporate HR so far: "With Tim, we were able to gain an excellent HR professional who has already set first milestones within a few months. With his help, we will be able to succeed in the competitive market of talent and shape a motivated and dedicated team to position Aenova as an Employer of Choice."
