Strengthening the Culture of Innovation


None of us is as smart as all of us together.  That’s why Bayer develop We Solve, an internal cross-subgroup marketplace for collaborative problem solving where an employee (Challenge owner) posts a Challenge  and the entire community of Bayer employees (Solvers) is enabled to solve it. This Group wide initiative aims to leverage the global knowledge from all employees, promoting innovative solutions to solve complex challenges. 


Combining our knowledge and ingenuity ensures that our most innovative ideas will be heard and put to use by our customers and society.


The Bayer Employee Survey


The Bayer Employee Survey is intended to empower employee involvement in the company and inspire innovation in all areas. Every year, all employees are invited to give us their feedback on our strategy, culture, and working conditions.


The opinions expressed in the survey are very important to Bayer and we have launched a variety of initiatives and improvements worldwide in response to the survey results.
