Employee Engagement

We are only as good as our people!

We believe involved, inspired and energized employees are the hands, heart and soul of the company, enabling us to grow and thrive while meeting constant challenges in the marketplace.

At all of our Volkswagen Group locations around the world, our responsibilities don’t end at the door to our showrooms, plants or research labs. We actively invest our time, talent and financial resources in education, diversity, health, sports, the arts and the environment.

We believe in connecting with our customers, our communities and the environment. We believe by sharing and by teaching, we learn. This helps us create a better product — for our customers now and in the future.
