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.

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 (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.

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.

Parking space

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.

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? Flexible working hours allow our employees to decide for themselves when they start and end their working day.

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.
