Mercedes-Benz states that digital and electric transformation is changing all job profiles and that lifelong learning and continuing education for employees is at the centre of sustainable personnel development.
The announcement includes a new programme, Turn2Learn: a push for qualifications and continuing education, the global rollout of e-learning programmes and custom learning paths, across professional life, in production and administration.
More than €1.3 billion will be invested by 2030 in Germany alone.
Electrification and digitalisation are fundamentally changing the world of work. The transformation will lead to further development of all job profiles at Mercedes-Benz. The company is therefore putting lifelong learning and continuing education for employees at the centre of sustainable personnel development.
In Germany, Mercedes-Benz will invest more than €1.3 billion in the qualification, training and continuing education of its employees by 2030. Turn2Learn is an extensive push that raises qualification at the company to a new level. It combines three elements: a wide range of learning opportunities via e-learning platforms, customized learning paths and in addition the previously available continuing education programs. These elements offer employees tailor-made qualification opportunities in production and administration — in different combinations digitally and face-to-face.
“For a fully electric and digital future as a luxury brand, we have generated a noticeable sense of new beginnings at Mercedes-Benz. Turn2Learn takes this up and puts the qualification for all employees at Mercedes-Benz on a new level. With Turn2Learn we create limitless opportunities for lifelong learning at Mercedes-Benz. Everyone can continue their education independent of time and place, and across all units and levels. As a company, we primarily rely on learning paths that enable us to forge ahead with digitalization and electrification. I am very pleased that Turn2Learn enables colleagues to educate themselves according to their personal interests in order to promote willingness for lifelong learning. In the transformation, lifelong learning is not a buzzword, but the condition for success — for the company and for each individual colleague,” says Sabine Kohleisen, Member of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz Group AG, Human Resources & Labour Director.
