Room for decision-making
Independent and self-determined work is important to us at Webasto. Our employees are heard, appreciated and encouraged as decision-makers. We want to give you the opportunity to help shape technical innovations in the automotive industry from start to finish, because at Webasto you are not only responsible for a single component but are involved in complete modules.
Webasto is represented worldwide at more than 50 locations in 47 countries. We are always networked and work together in global teams. Diversity and cultural diversity are particularly important to us, and our ONE Webasto program promotes just that. Because at Webasto we work together across divisions in a large global network.
In our cafeteria you can choose between a variety of varied meals in the morning and at noon. In this way, you can get to work stronger and more motivated.
In-House Academy/Specialist Academies
In order to always be one step ahead, we qualify our employees with foresight. In this way, we are always up to date to master the challenges of today and tomorrow. This is why we are the market leader. The Webasto Academy is open to all employees as an internal knowledge network and offers more than 700 seminars and 300 e-learnings every year for professional, methodical and personal development. Employees also have the opportunity to become involved as trainers and pass on their knowledge to colleagues.
Fitness activities (e.g. jogging and yoga)
Doing sports together is fun, promotes health and strengthens cohesion. Like all our employees, you can choose from a variety of sports activities such as running, yoga and back therapy training.
Through our internal e-learning platform, we have the opportunity to educate ourselves in different areas and to participate in various digital workshops and trainings. In this way, we always have the current state of knowledge and information and can continue our education flexibly, whenever and wherever we want.
In order for us to be prepared for international cooperation and projects, we offer our employees, who want to improve their business English or want to learn a new language, interesting and diverse language courses such as intercultural trainings, for example Dos and Don’ts.
The health and the well-being of our employees is our top priority. That is why we offer our employees the opportunity to participate at our health days and learn a little bit more about preventive measures to maintain a healthy body.
We provide parking spaces for employees who arrive by their own car. In Stockdorf there is also the option of parking your car in the underground garage.
Christmas and vacation bonuses
Webasto would like to offer its employees a wonderful Christmas and vacation season. That is why our employees receive Christmas and vacation pay so that they can enjoy their free time a little more.
Our employees benefit from numerous cooperations and discounts in areas such as fashion, leisure time, sports and gastronomy.
Our employees benefit from lectures on a wide range of specialist knowledge as well as current research findings from various areas. In this way, they are always up to date with the latest knowledge in various disciplines.
Flexible working hours
Do you need to go to the gym quickly before work or do you need to take care of a family member? Flexible working hours allow our employees to decide for themselves when they start and end their working day. Mobile networking, company laptops and mobile office enable our employees to work independently of time and place.
Tax-Free investment benefits
Our employees benefit from several financial advantages. For example, we offer capital-forming benefits to enable employees to save up a secure savings account.
Depending on how the financial year develops, our employees benefit from a profit-sharing scheme based on results.
Subsidized gym membership
We want to enable our employees to lead a healthy lifestyle in addition to their work. With the help of Gympass, we can help our employees to be flexible in their choice of sports activities and promote their well-being.
Summer party, Christmas party and other events - this is where our employees come together outside working hours, get to know each other better in a relaxed atmosphere and have the chance to make new contacts.
The Webasto Group is active beyond its corporate borders and promotes and supports charitable projects and organizations worldwide with the help of the Webasto Foundation. Our employees are invited to take an active part in the work of the Webasto Foundation and to get involved socially. The Webasto Foundation regularly organizes donation votings in which social initiatives from all around the world are introduced. By participating in these votings our colleagues can co-determine about the funds the organizations will receive.
However, if our employees want to do more, they can suggest charitable projects for a donation themselves, engage personally by joining Corporate Volunteering activities or donate directly to the Webasto Foundation, e.g. by signing up for our LuckyPenny initiative (only available in Germany).
With mobile work, employees are given the opportunity to perform a certain part of their working hours outside the company, and thus on the move. Our employees are Webasto's special plus, so their well-being is very important to us. In accordance with their supervisor, employees can work 40% of the hours agreed in their contract in a home office - as long as the type of activity is suitable for mobile working.
Management by objectives is an important component of Webasto's management culture. Managers reach clear agreements on goals or tasks as well as training opportunities with their employees on an annual basis, follow up on these and intervene immediately in the event of deviations. They assume management responsibility for achieving the results.
In this way, each employee receives - in addition to regular feedback during the year - a clear assessment of his or her performance. The result of the annual cycle is the definition of a development plan by employees and managers.
We offer innovative technologies not only to car manufacturers and end customers, but also to our employees. For those colleagues among us who already drive electrically, this means that charging of private vehicles is already free of charge at some of our Webasto locations. In this way, we want to help our employees take a step toward a more sustainable future.
