  • The aim is to establish a high-performance culture at Straumann to maintain long-term success
  • Once attention has been drawn to this issue of high-performance culture, concrete recommendations must be developed to increase commitment
  • There was a lack of transparency about the prevailing corporate culture and the issues that needed to be addressed


  • Implementation of a comprehensive and representative "High Performance Culture Pulse Check"
  • Implementation of structured individual interviews and focus groups with the Executive Member Board, Country Managers and trained Change Champions
  • Consolidation and analysis of the results
  • Development of a concrete action plan


  • Creation of transparency as it exists in the company concerning the topic of "High Performance Culture"
  • Identification of relevant fields of action and leverage points for more commitment
  • Concrete definition of the next steps to be taken
It is the corporate culture that will drive and sustain our success in the future. The ‘Pulse Check’ carried out by Bernd Remmers Consultants has revealed important fields of action. Thank you for the transparency! Marco Gadola, former CEO, Straumann
