Working at Porsche


Working at Porsche

Fascinating cars, motor sport history, visions of the future we connect many things with the name "Porsche", but "boredom" is definitely not one of them. The same applies to a career with Porsche.

For us continuity is essential, and this also applies to employee relations. The basic precondition for this is satisfaction with work and above all with the working environment. For Porsche, operating a performance culture and assuming social responsibility do not contradict each other. In addition to exciting projects we offer our employees a dynamic, international operational environment with a family-like atmosphere.

And thanks to flat hierarchies within the company and the high level of responsibility each individual is expected to assume, all our employees are actively encouraged to contribute their own ideas.

Above and beyond this, all Porsche personnel enjoy a wide range of additional benefits.

Career and family
We support our employees in reconciling the contrasting demands of their working and private lives by, for example, providing support in finding nursery places for small children. In addition, we offer our employees at Porsche Leipzig the opportunity of home office. A voluntary personal time-out for the individual design of the life planning is also offered. In addition, it is possible to take time for the family when employees need it: during the Porsche care period, employees can be released from work for up to 3 months in the event of an acute care situation.

Vehicle leasing and company cars
We offer our personnel attractive leasing terms for Porsche models and selected vehicles from the VW group.

Provision for pensions
Occupational pension provision is very important to us. In addition to an attractive retirement solution, our employees benefit at the request of the "Porsche VarioRente".

Health and safety in the workplace
The health of our workforce is important to us. Accordingly the minimisation of workplace-related health risks, preventive health care and expert medical support are significant elements in our commitment to health and safety – as is the "Fitness and vitality" nutritional programme offered by our works restaurant.

Company sports activities
To enable our workforce to enjoy the experience of improving their fitness and health, we offer a wide range of facilities covering a number of sports.


Skills enhancement

The most important resource a successful company has consists of the skills and qualifications of its personnel. This is why at Porsche we are committed to promoting these by offering development possibilities within the wide spectrum of interesting tasks and activities offered by our company.

Personnel development review
The foundation for personnel development at Porsche is results-oriented, cooperative management: challenging, encouraging and providing feedback on the basis of targets are the central elements of our management guidelines. We aim to create an environment in which our employees can develop their potential, a principle which applies to the production section just as much as to any other specialist department. The basis for this development is formed by the annual personnel development review. In a frank and fair dialogue the strengths, weaknesses and improvement potential of every individual employee are analysed and used as the basis for tailor-made support measures.

Career development
Especially for our junior executive staff we have, for example, developed a modular programme which aims at preparing them in a targeted way for the assumption of further responsibilities. The programme is made up of a number of components which lead with precision to a single target: equipping the individual for a successful career.

Management dialogue
In order to safeguard the high level of management skills at Porsche we place great emphasis on the exchange of experience and know-how. For this purpose all management personnel at the Leipzig location meet regularly outside of their daily working environment for purposes of networking, developing new strategies and skills enhancement in the form of specialist presentations. This contributes new energy to our thinking and our cooperation. Successful development, however, always requires individual initiative, too. At Porsche every individual is required to take personal responsibility for driving forward the enhancement of his or her skills.
