Dual study programmes, part-time professional development, parental leave, international work assignments, caregiver leave, partial retirement: These days, careers adapt to the employee’s phase in life, not the other way around. Internationalisation and digitalisation further intensify the demand for flexible solutions – for both the company and for each individual employee. During a tour through the Audi plant in Ingolstadt, Dr. Jochen Haberland, Karl Unger and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Wilhelm Bauer discuss the dynamic transformation of the workplace.
Virtually every single Audi that rolls off the assembly line is one of a kind. The variety is vast. This requires extremely flexible production processes. This trend toward personalisation can not only be observed on products; it also defines the requirements of employees with respect to things such as working hours, the workplace, working practices and work content.
