The human race has an enduring fascination with cars. It goes without saying that every one of our 610,000-plus employees is a passionate ambassador for Volkswagen vehicles. But our business increasingly also involves intelligent services, data products and connected mobility services. One of the key priorities of Volkswagen’s current personnel management policy is to bring our employees into the digital age and, as mobility enters a new era, to continue to provide the best skills and the greatest efficiency and customer focus across all areas of our business. Fairness, trust and genuine partnership with our customers and with society remain the principles which guide everything we do.
