At Audi Brussels, there is a focus on the employees, as shown by the plant’s own health center. It offers a preventative program for the entire workforce: the Audi Check‑Up. The employee attendance rate is currently 96 percent. Experienced nurses and doctors work to maintain and improve the employees’ health and help to recognize any risk factors at an early stage and to counteract them. Audi Brussels is one of the few companies in Belgium that offer this service.
Audi Brussels cooperates closely with the trade unions. In a letter of intent from 2007, the management and the trade unions together defined the framework conditions for good cooperation. An important component is the timebanking system used at Audi Brussels since 2010. It offers the company and its employees much more flexibility.
Within the framework of the Dual Training project, 32 students have started their job training as plant technicians at Audi Brussels. Dual Training allows the students of the two partner colleges to undergo part of their training at the company. In this project, Audi Brussels is cooperating with the Flemish college KTA Pro Technica Halle and the francophone college Don Bosco Woluwe Saint-Pierre. The project gives the students the opportunity to have more practical experience during their training. Another objective is to gain young people for attractive technical vocational training in Belgium.
