AUDI HUNGARIA MOTOR Kft. has an excellent reputation amongst academics. Studies by the international student organization AIESEC and the consulting company Aon Hewitt found Audi Hungaria to be “the most attractive employer in Hungary” for the sixth consecutive year in 2014. This is an image that the company has worked continuously to achieve: For example, employees in administration and production always work in teams. Personnel selection takes account not only of specialist qualifications and work experience, but also of team capabilities, language knowledge and social competence. Selection takes place in assessment centers.
In October 2011, Audi Hungaria opened a Project and Training Center (PTC). This is where the company’s staff and apprentices are trained: 13 trainers train nearly 250 apprentices in eleven occupations. The training facilities in the process technologies of vehicle, body, paint, mechatronic and manufacturing are equipped with the latest technologies. In the PTC with floor space of 11,000 square meters, approximately 500 employees participate each day in courses for specialist and general training as well as for basic qualifications, lean training and process-oriented training. Furthermore, the employees of the new car plant can acquire the required competencies such as for the body shop, paint shop and assembly, as well as expert skills for areas such as automation technology. 50 ultra-modern units and robot cells are part of various “learning islands” for the body shop, paint shop and assembly, mechatronics and electronics. As at AUDI AG, remuneration is based on a uniform, performance-oriented system, which includes a variable, performance-related element in addition to the basic salary. The employees and their line managers agree on performance targets and processes, with importance placed on aspects such as quality, productivity, supply reliability and economy. Wall charts display the targeted and actual values for all members of the teams. The company supports further training with a broad spectrum of measures.
