Reliable, innovative, dynamic and open, these are the corporate values that our employees experience. For ideas that inspire. For changes that move.
Every day we want to overcome borders and to continually make our pioneering technological products that little bit better. In this regard, we are at home all around the world, with sites in more than 120 countries.
The best perspectives: Personnel development at MAN
If you want to be at the forefront of global competition, you need qualified specialists and managers. Reason enough for us to anchor the continuous qualification and development of our employees as a strategic corporate objective. Regardless of whether it is about establishing and developing skills for your current position or with a view to making that next career step – we support all of our employees e. g. with targeted qualification measures and a mentor.
We promote people. In keeping with their personal ambitions and strengths. To this end, discussions between managers and employees take place on a regular basis. In so doing, questions are asked of both. Because only if each party can contribute his or her perspective does it become possible to assess the performance and potential of an employee properly.
The results of this conversation, in addition to any jointly defined objectives, are incorporated into an individual development plan. This will also determine how and with what resources the employee is supported in his/her development.
An approach that, at the end of the day, benefits both employees and MAN. New opportunities and perspectives are always on offer – and MAN can sustain its competitive position with a "strong workforce".
What is still valid today, may already be history tomorrow: The dynamics of the global markets require that we have a great deal of versatility and adaptability – this also applies to our management.
As an employer, we consider it our responsibility to support our "leadership squad" accordingly. We prepare them for leadership tasks, both professionally and personally, create opportunities for them to develop their leadership skills and offer appropriate programmes for executives. Thus, our leaders can be better cast in their roles and perform tasks easier.
Job rotation is a central part of human resources development at MAN.
Today at MAN Truck & Bus in Bavaria and tomorrow perhaps for MAN Diesel & Turbo abroad: Every employee can apply directly within the group for open positions. If anyone wants to gain experience outside of his/her current area of responsibility, in another activity within the MAN Group or the VW Group, he or she is welcome. And thus his or her international, intercultural and interdisciplinary horizon can be expanded even more along the way.
Simply excellent: Social benefits and other advantages
MAN relies on very good basic conditions for its entire workforce. Because satisfied and committed employees are the foundation for our company's success. That deserves appreciation. But that also earns benefits that go beyond the salary.
Performance should pay off. Those in positions of responsibility at MAN share in the company's success through variable remuneration. This variable salary component depends on the one hand on the company's success and on the other on individual performance, the performance of teams or the performance of all employees. It can therefore be individually and collectively influenced. This motivates and generates a positive atmosphere.
Benefits for employees
More in it for everyone: In addition to the company pension, as a MAN employee you receive, for example, holiday, Christmas and relocation allowance. In addition, there are benefits in areas such as finance, culture, travel and technology. The leasing benefits (Volkswagen AG employee business) can be availed of by all MAN employees residing in Germany – an offer that also extends to former employees. MAN also supports local offers for 'job tickets' for urban public transport.
Health protection and promotion
MAN holds the health of its employees close to its heart. We offer numerous benefits via our health service e.g. occupational medical examinations, physical therapy, health weeks on various topics, fitness- and non smoking courses and vaccination and travel advice. Acute illnesses or injuries can be treated in our own ambulances; together with the fire service, we ensure the provision of emergency medical care.
Equal opportunities and family
To have children, to be there for the family and "to stand one's ground" while on the job - at MAN we have created optimal conditions and offer, for example, childcare facilities, information sessions for expectant parents, seminars for those returning to work after parental leave, opportunities for home office work and an emergency care. Furthermore, MAN campaigns worldwide for equal opportunities for women and men. We know that the best results are achieved when you have a balanced team set-up. This is why we are working to reverse the shortage in mostly female skilled employee through of individual development programmes.
