Technical expertise, motivation and health

The central concern of the Volkswagen Group’s human resources work is to promote the expertise, motivation and health of our employees. This is the prerequisite for outstanding professional and engineering work.

The dual vocational training and a university degree are the basis for professional development in the vocational groups at Volkswagen. Employees then obtain further qualifications throughout their working lives. To always meet current requirements, the broad offering of qualifications is continuously being enhanced. For example, employees are prepared for the changes associated with the advancing digitalization and the use of new technologies under Industry 4.0. An important pillar of this strategy is the transfer of knowledge and experience by experts to other staff. Qualifications are provided in the form of dual vocational training and classroom education that closely integrate theoretical and practical forms of learning.
