“This recognition is a direct result of working together with our employees to enrich and improve our culture,” said Burkhard Ulrich, SVP of human resources for Volkswagen Chattanooga.
“We actively seek employee feedback and engagement at all levels throughout the organization. As we continue to grow our Tennessee operations, our people are helping us to build a better workplace. The achievements of Volkswagen Chattanooga are inextricably linked to our team.”
The Top Employer Institute assessed Volkswagen Chattanooga’s human resources practices and policies in the following areas: talent strategy; culture; workforce planning; compensation and benefits; talent acquisition; onboarding; learning and development; performance management; and leadership development.
“Our scores improved this year compared to last year in every category,” said Mr. Ulrich. “This recognition does not mark the end of our efforts; it confirms we are on the right track.”
