Volkswagen's Take on Excellence, Success, and Involvement
Summary: 

This is the 6th part of a series on highlights from the brand-new Volkswagen Group Sustainability Report 2013 - the summary of our efforts to strike a balance between resource efficiency, economic stability, and social responsibility.

Excellence. Success. Involvement. This is what matters to us. The Volkswagen Group, its brands and its companies are moving steadily closer to the goal of being a top global employer, thanks not least to their outstanding record on employment, participation and qualification.

Successfully tackling the current and future challenges facing the Volkswagen Group depends on all our employees – from apprentices right up to top managers – consistently turning in an outstanding performance to ensure that our innovation and product quality remain at the very highest level in the long term. That means recruiting talent and promoting skills, health and commitment. But it also means enabling our employees to play their part in building our success – and share in it. And it’s how we plan to achieve our goal of becoming the most attractive employer in the automobile industry by 2018.
