“I am very pleased that the members of the employee group have expressed their trust in me. With the new team, we are effectively preparing for the challenges of the coming years. In addition to coping with the corona pandemic, it is particularly important to be human-friendly and at the same time efficient To develop framework conditions for the changing world of work of the future.

We want to inspire confidence in the future among employees and take away their fears, for example of digitization. We want to take advantage of the opportunities that arise from digitization. We can only achieve acceptance for the necessary changes if we also address the associated risks in a credible manner. Our goal is to take everyone with us into the digital age and to support people with all our strength in their professional changes and advancement.

Digital work must enable prosperity and at the same time time for the family and must not be linked to poverty biographies. In times of mobile work, home office and desk sharing, modern occupational health and safety also play a central role. Here it is important to achieve the right balance between flexible work arrangements, especially to reconcile family and work, and protection from constant availability and excessive demands on employees. ”

In the Bundestag, the employee group represents the Christian-social tendency as one of the three traditional intellectual-historical roots (alongside conservatism and liberalism) in the popular parties CDU and CSU. It represents a political concept that goes beyond belief in the state that regulates everything and in market liberalism, based on the principles of subsidiarity and solidarity. The economic order that corresponds to its principles is the social market economy.

He has also been Deputy Chairman of the CDA (Christian Democratic Workers) since 2019.
