Digital workplaces for Deutsche Bahn

Article: Our digital tools for boundless collaboration and communication

Digital workplace solutions facilitate direct communication and group-wide teamwork at Deutsche Bahn. Discover the opportunities of innovative working environments that are ideally suited for collaboration between employees in the DB Group.

We are increasingly working in an agile and flexible way – often across team boundaries, different systems, long distances and different locations. This new, boundless teamwork and accessibility calls for new ways of communicating and sharing information. Without the support of a digital working environment, coordination across time and space is almost impossible. That is why, in addition to standard workplaces, we design effective working environments and customised solutions for special requirements together with our Group partners.

"We provide all employees in the DB Group with a modern, innovative and efficient workplace environment. This is a simple way for us to create digital working in every area of DB and thus secure the digital basis for our users for further digitalisation projects within the Group."
