In complex and changing times, the career environment is also full of changes and uncertainties. The only thing you can be sure of is that the steering wheel of your career development is in your own hands. At Schaeffler, we encourage our employees to be the masters of their own career development (Drive Your Career), while the company provides them with multiple career paths and transparent development opportunities. We encourage our employees to be self-driven, to combine their individual needs with active mobility within the company and to try out and build up a wide range of experiences and skills.
In order to help our employees gain more opportunities in their areas of expertise and achieve better development, we have established three career paths: "Leadership", "Engineer" and "Project Management". We have designed and developed related employee development programs.
We want every employee to flourish within the organization. Whichever direction our employees choose, we can help them get there.
