According to a number of different studies and polls, BMW is among the world’s most desirable companies to work for in 2020. It’s become something of a regular occurrence, as BMW has actually defended the top spot in the Trendence Young Professionals Barometer in Germany since 2012, with 2020 marking the ninth year in a row. BMW also performed well in other Trendence polls, including the Trendence Graduate Barometer 2020, in which BMW ranked second within the business category, fourth in engineering, and sixth in IT, thanks to a majority of students in Germany rating the BMW Group among the top companies for the year. The global automaker also ranked fourth in the Trendence School Leaver Barometer, an improvement of one spot over last year.
Ilka Horstmeier, member of the Board of Management responsible for Human Resources, and Labor Relations Director at BMW AG, said the following: “Our goal is to recruit the best talents in a highly competitive market. The perception as an attractive employer, especially among young talents and students, is a decisive success factor for this. Our opportunities for training and development, the flexible job options and, above all, the chance to work in diverse teams on the sustainable and connected mobility of the future strengthens our position as an attractive employer.”
BMW’s strong performance as a preferable employer is not limited to it’s home market of Germany, either. According to a global study conducted by Universum, BMW ranked fourth in terms of IT and engineering, right on the coattails of tech giants like Google, Microsoft, and Apple. As per Universum, BMW is also the, “World’s most attractive employer,” thanks to it securing the top stop among global auto manufacturers across all disciplines.—Alex Tock
