Bayer, the German multinational which competes for talent such as scientists and digital marketers worldwide, has been trying to improve internal mobility, reduce unwanted turnover, and speed up its hiring. So far, it has been wildly successful achieving all three goals.

Holly Quincey is the London-based global head of Talent Attraction at Bayer. The company is one of the world’s most powerful brands, one of the world’s largest Life Science companies, and received awards in 2019 as one of the best employers in Germany, China, United States and Brazil.
