Hello Sharon. I see you’re going to discuss Fresenius Medical Care. I’m interested in seeing
how the company functions effectively and how it handles its employees when there is chaos.
Are you familiar with conflict on this particular company and how was it handled? How did it
coincide with employees’ long-term behavior? What is it like to work for a company such as
this one? Good luck and I wish you the best in your classes and career as we get closer to
the end.
