Integration Management Officer

The integration management programme (Betriebliche Eingliederungsmanagement, BEM) is a service for employees who are unfit for work due to an illness, either frequently or for an extended period of time. Supported by the RUB integration management officer and, if required, by other bodies in charge of consultancy and assistance, employees are provided with solutions that help them continue to work despite their impairments, to prevent further deterioration, and to cut down on absence from work.

The BEM officer’s duties in accordance with BEM practices are as follows:

  • general consultancy and information on any BEM-related issues,
  • coordination and implementation of BEM practices,
  • briefings and BEM interviews,
  • coordination of the integration team and calling of meetings,
  • introduction and monitoring of relevant measures on behalf of the Rector and the Chancellor,
  • networking with and integrating of internal and external institutions (e.g. rehab facilities).
