In order to remove hurdles for employees who want to reorientate professionally, many company projects have been launched that provide employees with an individual learning experience. The successful pilot project “Digital Shift” in the production area at the Neckarsulm site lets employees undergo advanced training for a job in software development or IT infrastructure. A similar program called “Digital Future” has been launched at the Ingolstadt site. The 6- to 18-month advanced training programs are designed to build IT skills within the company to help strengthen strategic future jobs and support the company’s digital transformation. Each advanced training program is tailored to the individual employee, depending on the level of prior knowledge, individual learning speed, and requirements of the future job. The recruiting concept leans primarily on individual interests or even hobbies and skills, rather than degrees.
Audi is also constantly adapting its training programs to this change, focusing on future jobs there as well. From the very beginning, Audi promotes the necessary skills that are crucial for the future, offering young people the chance to shape the mobility of tomorrow.
