Shanghai. On 25 January, the globally authoritative organisation Top Employers Institute officially announced that Porsche China has been recognised as a “Top Employer 2021 in China”, honouring the company's outstanding human resources policies and people practices. This is the second time that Porsche China has won this award after obtaining the “Top Employer 2020 in China” certification last year.
Dr.-Ing. Jens Puttfarcken, President and CEO of Porsche China, said: “It is a great honor to be recognised by the Top Employers Institute. For many years, Porsche China has upheld our “people-oriented” philosophy and we have always regarded talent as the foundation block and motivation for our business operations. The continuous success of Porsche China is inseparable from the efforts and coordination of all employees. With our future-proof sustainability strategy, we will provide Chinese employees with an ever more competitive workplace and richer development opportunities.
The “Top Employer 2021” certification was issued by the global authority Top Employers Institute. Established more than 30 years ago, Top Employers Institute has certified over 1600 organisations in 120 countries and regions. These certified Top Employers positively impact the lives of over 7 million employees globally. “Despite the challenging year we have experienced, Porsche China has continued to demonstrate the power of putting their people first in the workplace. Congratulations to Porsche China for being certified as the Top Employer again.” said Top Employers Institute CEO David Plink.
Facing the COVID-19 epidemic in 2020, Porsche China has achieved improvements in talent development, employee welfare and skills training through a variety of innovative and flexible methods and channels. Porsche China quickly constructed an inter-departmental team in order to actively adopt prevention and control measures and to respond flexibly to the challenges and difficulties the year brought. Through multi-channel information research and demand analysis, a remote working scheme was launched in 2020 that each employee is able to apply for in order to work remotely one day a week, to improve work efficiency during the pandemic and balance employees' lives and work. At the same time, Porsche China has further improved the content of commercial health insurance, and always put the life, health and safety of employees first, demonstrating the corporate leadership and social responsibility of an outstanding employer. In order to implement the sustainability strategy, Porsche China digitalised the training management process this year to empower the digital upgrade of human resource management.
Despite the huge challenge and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Porsche China has maintained its steady development in the past year. In 2020, Porsche delivered 88,968 new cars to Chinese customers, ensuring that China remains Porsche‘s largest single global market. The number of sales sites and employees has grown steadily. In addition, the new headquarters established in Pudong, Shanghai has won the Automotive Brand Contest Award, the Red Dot Award, and the WELL Certification at the gold level with its design concept S.P.A.C.E last year, which stands as a strong recognition of Porsche China in enhancing employee welfare and building an excellent working environment.
2021 marks the 20th anniversary of Porsche's entry into China’s Mainland. Years of continuous hard work have enabled Porsche China to achieve substantial and stable development in corporate culture, talent strategy and human resource management. In the context of the digitalisation in the automotive industry, Porsche China launched the "Talent 2025 Program" in 2019, which aims to implement a five-year training plan for high-potential talents through development modules that strengthen leadership and project practice capabilities. The project will be further optimised in 2021, to define clearer leadership goals for employees, and to cultivate and deliver more comprehensive future leaders or succession candidates for business development. In the future, Porsche China will adhere to the “people-oriented” talent management philosophy, to provide all employees in China with better work experience and to help build future-oriented work skills by utilising more efficient management approaches. Porsche China will continuously promote the collaborative development and progress of enterprises and talents, and work together to open a new chapter.
