New Board of Directors for Goldstück03.06.2016 | Society
Caring for the ageing population will be a huge challenge for our country. It is getting more and more obvious that there will be too little well educated caregivers for this important task. Goldstück AG is thus offering practically-oriented solutions for the education and placement of caregivers.
The "basic course for care" already started successfully and Goldstück AG is offering it together with Migros Klubschule. The "Cource for nursing assistants Spitex" is newly launched as part of the Goldstück campus offer to comply with the huge demand for well-educated specialists in ambulant care.
The intermediary platform www.private-betreuung.ch has already been implemented and the consultation of companies and their employees concerning questions about caring for relatives (elder care) is in realisation as well. The organisation of care for relatives is likely the disproportionately greater challenge compared to childcare. This is why great employers are searching for more services and offers for their employees.
Barbara Radtke became known for founding the private "Spitex zur Mühle" and as multiple prizewinner (a.o. the Swiss Economic Award 2013). After selling "Spitex zur Mühle" she founded Goldstück AG, a company which is addressing according to her experience the hugest problem in care: the lack of suitable personalities - the gold pieces - who accept this challenge. With Kurt Schaad and Thomas Bähler she is strengthening her strategic leadership of Goldstück AG for the expansion to new fields of activity.
Kurt Schaad (*1950) became known as presenter of the show „Karrussell“ and then developed and managed the formats "SF Fernweh“ and „ECO“. In 2010 he founded the youth channel JOIZ together with partners with which he won the Swiss Economic Award 2014.
Dr. Thomas Bähler (*1968) is a business lawyer at Kellerhals Carrard. He is a member of several Boards of Directors and as president he is thereby responsible for more than 2,000 employees and a turnover of more than 500 million Swiss Francs in total. He is active in the start up, young entrepreneurs and technology scene for 20 years now, a.o. as responsible for the Swiss Economic Award. As an active investor he is also holding shares of several companies.
