• 30 female employees about to start their careers at Audi Hungaria
• Unique initiative aimed at retraining female employees
• Ratio of female workers on the rise in production
Thirty female employees signed their employment contracts at AUDI HUNGARIA MOTOR Kft. after successfully completing a four-month retraining programme for a vehicle specific profession.The new Audi employees are set to work in the assembly plant of the vehicle factory currently under construction. Commissioned by Audi Hungaria, the training project was implemented in the spring of 2012 from funds provided by the Labour Centre of the Government Office of Győr-Moson-Sopron County, and provided by Audi Akademie Hungaria and the Lukács Sándor Mechatronics and Mechanical Engineering Vocational School and Students Hostel.The purpose of the project was to increase the ratio of female employees working in the vehicle industry.
“With this programme, we offer practice-oriented training that is unique in Hungary and secure jobs for female employees”, said Richárd Rozman, Managing Director for Human Resources of Audi Hungaria. “We also wish to increase the number of female employees working in production. With this programme, the first milestone on this road has been reached.”
Ákos Kara, Győr-based member of parliament appointed by the Minister for National Economy to be in charge of vocational training issues concerning the new Audi plant, explained: “Our goal with this programme is to increase the number of female employees in the region. We are pleased to see that the programme allows them to have long-term, secure jobs in Győr.”
The project aimed at the retraining of female employees started this May with the assistance of funds from the Hungarian labour market and the Social Renewal Operational Programme “TÁMOP”. This allowed 30 women to start their four-month practice-oriented training course this spring, which took place at the Lukács Sándor Vocational School and the Project and Training Centre of Audi Hungaria. During the training programme, selected participants had an opportunity to learn the general and professional know-how of vehicle manufacturing and familiarise themselves with the processes, materials and assembly techniques applied in the auto industry. Each training module concluded with an examination. After successfully completing their examinations, each participant received an employment contract from Audi Hungaria.
Audi Hungaria is planning to continue this programme. In July this year, another group started their retraining.
