What to expect from the Audi family
“The sudden need to care for my father has presented my siblings and me with great emotional and bureaucratic challenges. Audi has supported us enormously, both through its partner organization famPLUS and through a variety of information and advice formats. That gave me courage and helped a lot in this situation.”
― Tanja Gerlinger, sales controller,
with Audi since 1997
In life, circumstances are constantly changing. We do everything we can to ensure that your work and private life remain in harmony. We support you with specific services, wherever and whenever it is necessary.
We support our employees in balancing their professional and private lives with very concrete programs.
|Child care||To ensure the best possible care for the children of our employees, there are places at several daycare centers and a plentiful pool of programs for children during school breaks. We also help bridge bottlenecks in child care with our flexible, short-term care.|
|Flexible work schedule||Satisfaction creates motivation. This is why Audi supports you in every phase of life. For instance, flexible work schedules allow you to organize your working time according to your needs.|
|Mobile working||Whether you have a family, studying or pursuing a further education or would like to design your working day individually: One goal we have set for ourselves is to create optimal conditions for combining work and leisure. This is why we offer our employees the freedom to devote their working time flexibly between various work locations.|
Working from a home office is another way for our employees to reconcile work and private life to their own personal needs.
|Sabbatical year||Innovation requires creativity and motivation. We also support you in planning your personal life with longer breaks. If you would like to take a break for a period, this is possible as part of an Audi sabbatical.|
|Community volunteering||The company actively supports you in getting involved in volunteering – independently, in your team or cross-divisionally in company-wide project days, such as the Audi Volunteer Days at our Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm sites. Volunteering allows you to broaden your horizons, develop as an individual and, at the same time, contribute to strengthening social cohesion and improving the quality of life in the respective regions.|
|Support in family care||
To relieve the burden on employees who are also carers, Audi provides numerous opportunities for information and support. To care for close relatives, our employees can obtain full- or part-time leave. After a period of family care, we will help you return to work and will not leave you on your own during this time.
“It’s just great and it makes me proud to be able to drive our wonderful cars myself and to do so without unnecessary bureaucracy and at a fair price. I’ve just used the employee discount to fulfil a small dream of mine and bought myself an Audi Q4 e-tron.”
― Volker Knöll, strategic planning/benchmarking, with Audi since 1997
Your work at Audi should be fun – but also offer you many advantages. We make sure that your work is worthwhile and provide you with a comprehensive package of additional benefits.
At Audi, as well as an attractive remuneration model, you will receive an all-round package of additional benefits.
In addition to the collective agreement benefits, we rely on performance- and earnings-oriented components of remuneration.
|Mobility programs||As a mobility provider, we offer our employees company cars, rental vehicles as well as purchase and leasing offers for new cars or relatively new used vehicles, which suit your personal needs. We also subsidize the public transport ticket in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm.|
|Pension provisions||The Audi occupational pensions are an important element in ensuring that you are well protected in your retirement phase of life. In addition, as an Audi employee, you are free to convert part of the remuneration during the employment phase with our help and to invest in your own retirement plan.|
|Anniversaries benefits||Anyone who feels comfortable, encouraged and challenged will remain loyal to us for a long time. Long-standing commitment is honored separately with us.|
|Services and benefits||As an employee, you can make use of our cleaning service or have parcels delivered to our packing station.|
|Special remunerations||We express our special appreciation with extra payments. Audi employees can also receive asset-building benefits as well as Sunday, holiday and night bonuses, depending on their area of work.|
|Further single payments||With us you will also receive, among others, (additional) holiday pay, a special bonus, the additional annual collective allowance (T-Zug) and, from 2022, a ‘transformation payment’ (Trafobaustein/T-Geld).|
|Flexibility and free time/Converting T-Zug into extra leave||
In principle, every Audi employee covered by a collective bargaining agreement has the option of converting their additional annual collective allowance (‘T-Zug’) into six or, under certain conditions, eight days of extra leave.
For us, this is an expression of our understanding of the need for a successful work-life balance.
“I’ve taken leave of absence at Audi several times at my own request to pursue further education, both for my technical qualifications and for my subsequent degree. Internally too, I was able to change across departments again and again. This flexibility is a unique benefit.”
― Markus Pfäffl, integration overall network management, with Audi since 2004
Development means different things to different people. That is why you will receive the maximum flexibility for your professional career, through internal qualification offers such as the Audi Academy, as well as leaves of absence or re-employment guarantees.
A company is always only as good as its employees. This is why promoting the individual is our top priority.
|Training programs||Here at Audi, we are committed to the basic principle of life-long learning. We firmly believe that it is key to the capacity to innovate and to motivated employees – and that it empowers each individual to achieve his or her own personal goals in life.|
|Audi Akademie||We work together here on developing your personal competences: Top-quality, individual training programs and practical advanced training are available to every Audi employee – in both specific disciplines and interdisciplinary subjects, and over the course of your entire career.|
|Horizontal and vertical development||Audi enables you to develop horizontally and vertically. We create a vision together – for our company and your personal growth. Existing competences are strengthen, groundbreaking new skills are cultivated. Regular supervisor’s performance reviews round out our development portfolio for you.|
|Experience abroad||As an international company, we offer you extensive development prospects abroad. You can make the most of your potential not only at the two German Audi plants in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm, but also worldwide - for at least four months and a maximum of five years in one location.|
|Career development program||Highly qualified employees are an important contributor to the success of Audi. However, their very personal mobility also entails the opportunity to reallocate within the company over and over again -through cross-divisional activity changes. We encourage and challenge you to rekindle your motivation and creativity over and over again.|
|Support programs||The following applies to the leap into management: It is crucial that you convince us as a top performer and correspond to the Audi competence profile. Decisive for this are your qualifications, your personality and your potential. For your personal advantage.|
“When I was affected by depression and burn-out, Audi was there to help me, working in direct cooperation with the health system. I was enormously relieved. I think it’s great that Audi is taking such a proactive approach to the issue of mental health, most recently with its ‘Everyone has mental health’ initiative. It makes it so much easier for those of us who are affected to talk about it.”
― Maria Märtl, personnel and competency restructuring, with Audi since 2006
Health is more than just the absence of illness. For us, your personal wellbeing is part of holistic health management. This starts with the opportunity to join our own company health insurance scheme and continues with prevention, fitness, and nutrition.
At Audi, a whole package of measures are available to you which will enable us to take care of your health in the long term.
|Audi BKK||Our company health insurance offers above-average benefits at a below-average contribution rate. Naturally, at Audi BKK, health, preventive and care offers, special programs for mother and child as well as individual, personal service are included.|
|Prevention program||As a responsible employer, we believe health care shouldn’t just start when you get sick. On the contrary, our prevention programs prevent hazards to health, safety and performance and ensure help is provided at an early stage in the event of a medical emergency. Occupational Health promotes programmes relating to the four key themes of exercise, mental health, nutrition and addiction prevention.|
|Mental health and wellbeing||
Since our successful in-house campaign to destigmatise mental health issues: “Everyone has mental health. Why not talk about it?”, the emphasis on prevention has gained an important place in corporate thinking and action. It is important to Audi that employees pay attention to their mental health and wellbeing – even if there are no apparent problems, challenges or illnesses.
Of course, the occupational support for dealing with mental health issues is as much a given as the practical help on a case-by-case basis through in-house and external counselling and treatment options.
|Company medical services||As well as work-related occupational health check-ups, the work of the company’s doctors involves offering individual health advice. This also includes advising and examining Audi employees before they spend time abroad on business. Furthermore, with ‘Audi Check-up’ we provide a prevention programme that aims to maintain and improve the health of our entire workforce.|
|First-aid service and occupational health ambulance||The initial treatment of injuries and acute medical symptoms takes place at our first-aid stations and health centres. The Occupational Health Emergency Service is contactable around the clock. To ensure efficient initial treatment for acute illnesses and injuries, first-aider courses are also offered in the company.|
At Audi we design our workstations in accordance with the latest ergonomic, safety and occupational health standards. By doing so, we improve the health, well-being and productivity of each individual employee.
Workplace design takes into account, among other things, the characteristics of the room, work processes and technical equipment and also offers subsidised opportunities for setting up home offices for mobile working, for example.
|Fitness programs||A love of sport is in our DNA – so naturally the healthy balance of mind and body is paramount to us. Our employees can train in Audi’s own gym, take a yoga class with their department or practise fitness exercises in the workplace. ‘Vorsprung’ begins with the first step.|
|Gastronomy||In our modern canteen facilities, we offer all employees a healthy and varied diet. We delight our customers with real variety, noticeable quality and the use of fresh, regional produce. We are working constantly on a contemporary, sustainable and attractive culinary offer that is guaranteed to satisfy our guests.|
