You receive valuable support from our personnel development department during all phases of your career development so that you are equipped with the correct technical, methodical and personal skills for your role at all times.
A Good Start: Introductory Training
With an individual introductory training plan, you receive all the information and knowledge you need for your work at Schaeffler Group - supplementary to the skills you already have. You need a comprehensive overview of our company so that your introductory phase at work runs smoothly. This is why we organize introductory training sessions for new employees during which they can take a look beyond their own department and familiarize themselves with the company organizational structure. A mentor who assists you in getting to know your working environment ensures you are integrated in your team from the very beginning. As an alternative to direct entry at the company, we also offer Trainee Programs for graduates.
Personal development and career planning: Talent Management
One of the most important tasks of Talent Management at Schaeffler is the personal development of each individual employee. Talent Management involves offering employees specific opportunities for development as well as identifying people with high potential and considering them early on for (international) positions within the company.
Talent management is a year-round cycle that begins with the Employee Development Dialog, which takes place once a year, where employees and their managers discuss the employee’s behavior, performance, potential and skills. An individual development plan is an optional component during the dialog and provides support with defining and planning personal development. The results of this dialog form the basis for discussion at the subsequent Global Talent Reviews. These reviews serve as a platform for exchanging information across all departments with the aim of identifying and confirming employees with potential, initiating individual development and carrying out succession planning.
Qualification: Schaeffler Academy
Highly qualified employees are a key success factor in global competition – now more than ever. Against this background Schaeffler pools its many opportunities for employee development world-wide under the umbrella of the Schaeffler Academy. With its extensive range of courses, the qualification opportunities offered by the Schaeffler Academy are aimed at all our employees – from apprentices to top managers, helping them to achieve their personal and professional goals.
The Schaeffler Group stands for the strategic and systematic development of all employees. Any qualification requirements are discussed and specific training is agreed during the annual employee development dialog. A comprehensive catalog of training offers several hands-on training courses, for example, in personal development, business management and technical skills, as well as information technology. Professional trainers and modern teaching and learning methods guarantee a high transfer of expertise. We support you in setting up networks and in your job-related and personal development with programs geared at specific target groups and participants from different locations.
Internal Job Portal
Change jobs and stay at the Schaeffler Group. The further development of employees and the opportunity to change positions within the company is particularly important to us. This is why we have created an internal job portal on the Intranet to enable our employees to quickly access a database of all openings within the company and to apply directly online.
Bright Inspirations: Ideas Management
With "ideafactory" Schaeffler offers employees an excellent platform for steering a recognized potential for optimization in work processes or products into the right direction. Since the ideas management creates a win-win situation for the company and the submitter, the active support of superiors and colleagues is granted. Furthermore, upon the successful implementation of the idea the employee also receives a bonus, and gets the good feeling of being able to change the world of work at Schaeffler positively.
