Faurecia, one of the world’s leading automotive equipment suppliers, has been certified as « Top Employers 2016 » in France, Germany and the U.S.A.
In 2015, in these three countries, Faurecia has hired some 900 managers and professionals out of 2,000 on a worldwide scale. The Group employs over 37 000 people there, out of a total of 103,000.
The quality of the management practices is audited using a detailed questionnaire and an in-depth audit covering numerous aspects such as talent management, training and development, career management, enterprise culture... This certification, already obtained over the last 5 years in Germany and in France in 2015, contributes to reinforcing the visibility of the company and the image of the Group’s employer branding.
Faurecia has been deploying for two years its enterprise project named « Being Faurecia », which is based on the redefinition of its culture and of its management model and aims at fostering accountability and the development of its workforce while creating long-term value. In September 2015, as an extension of Being Faurecia, it has launched a new employer branding campaign, deployed throughout the Group. With its motto « Born to be Faurecian », this campaign underlines the Group’s conviction that values and enterprise culture represent key assets to motivate and retain associates, as well as to attract the best talents.
