Our Values at Webasto

Webasto is growing and becoming more international on a daily basis. But that’s not stopping us from living out and fostering the values typical of small and medium-sized enterprises. On the contrary, we have made them an integral part of our framework for interacting with each other. Whether longevity, honesty, reliability, or perseverance: as an inherent part of Webasto’s values, they are instrumental in determining our daily attitudes and actions.

  • Because long-lasting and trustful partnerships form the basis of our business, we take responsibility for our colleagues, business partners and the society.

    We maintain a long-term view in our thinking and actions, while always keeping the benefit of the company in mind. Responsibility extends beyond the boundaries of our company: Wherever we are engaged in business, we aim to be good neighbors. We are committed to environmental protection. Therefore we use our resources with care.

    We respect rules and regulations: We never risk our integrity for perceived advantages. We take responsibility for our decisions and we keep our promises. Our word is our bond. By being respectful and highly committed, we earn the trust of colleagues and customers.

    This is how we create strong and steady relationships that secure the entrepreneurial independence of our company.

  • Because we do our very best and are passionate about our business, we set benchmarks in our industry.

    Our state-of-the-art products reflect our passion and performance. We do everything we can to achieve perfection. That is why we place the greatest importance on accuracy and precision.

    Our business partners appreciate our new ideas and solutions. This is why we need motivated and qualified employees. We offer them an atmosphere in which they can develop and grow. That includes giving our employees the freedom that encourages self-reliance in their work.

    This is how we continue to develop new perspectives for both our customers and ourselves.

  • Because we know our customer better than anyone else, we make a major contribution to their success.

    Due to our unique expertise, we know our customers’ requirements inside out. They perceive us as a reliable and competent partner who provides appropriate solutions to their challenges.

    Each and every day, we consistently do the very best for our customers. We feel equally committed to their objectives as we do to our own. Our products and solutions always offer an advantage for both sides. This means: We are in the right place at the right time with the right quality at the right price.

    This is how we exceed our customers’ expectations and strengthen our position on the market.

    Cooperation throughout the whole Webasto Group is characterized by a strong team spirit. We are constructive in striving for the best solution, while always remaining respectful.

    We are not lone fighters. The ideas and competencies of our colleagues are always acknowledged. We bear setbacks as a team and celebrate success together

    We are open in our interaction with one another and benefit from each other’s strengths. We are glad to share our knowledge and experience with colleagues from other teams and countries. Every day, we work hard on continuously improving our processes and products.

    This is how we continue to develop together.

  • Because every one of us is enthusiastic about their work, we are ready for the challenges of the future. 

    Our industry is constantly changing: characterized by market shifts, competitive pressure and shorter development cycles. We meet these challenges with self-confidence. We are experts and doers: Each and every employee contributes to the success of Webasto in the work they do.

    We are decision-makers and act in an entrepreneurial manner. We have the courage to question the tried and trusted. We come up with new solutions by breaking with routine.

Employees also have the opportunity to become involved as trainers and pass on their knowledge to colleagues.

Childcare Services

The compatibility of work and family is very important to us. Depending on the location, we offer our employees a company daycare center or places in a daycare center in the area. In addition, we offer a program for your little ones with various workshops and activities on the school free day of Prayer and Repentance and during the summer holidays.

Fitness Activities

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.

E-Learning Platform

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.

Language Training

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.

Health Days

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.

Free Parking

For employees arriving by their own car, we provide free parking and an underground garage.

Christmas and Vacation Bonus

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.

Employee Discounts

Our employees benefit from numerous cooperations and discounts in areas such as fashion, leisure time, sports and gastronomy. 

Expert Talks

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?

After-Work Events

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.

Webasto Foundation

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).  

Mobile Work

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.

Performance Management

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.

Charging Station

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.

Employee Recommendation Bonus

It pays to recommend! Our employees receive an attractive cash bonus for successfully referring highly qualified talents from their circle of acquaintances, friends or family to open positions.

Job Bike

Riding a bike is becoming more and more popular and you do something for your health as well as for the environment. We support the sustainable concept and offer our employees the possibility of leasing bicycles, pedelecs and e-bikes.
