Employee Engagement

We are only as good as our people!

We believe that involved, inspired and energized employees are the hands, heart and soul of the company, enabling us to grow and thrive while meeting constant challenges in the marketplace.

Our responsibilities don’t end at the door to our showrooms, plants or research labs. We actively invest our time, talent and financial resources in education, diversity, health, sports, the arts and the environment.

We believe in connecting with our customers, our communities and the environment. We believe by sharing and by teaching, we learn. This helps us create a better product — for our customers now and in the future.


Employee Giving

Matching Donations Program
Giving back to our communities and supporting individual philanthropic causes is an integral part of the Volkswagen Group of America culture. Our matching donations program allows our employees’ financial contributions to go even further. Volkswagen Group of America will match dollar for dollar up to $5,000 per employee per year designated to the organization of their choice.

Volunteer Day Program
Our people do remarkable work, within our facilities and beyond. We encourage them to take time to give back through our Volunteer Day program, which provides paid time off to get involved in community programs, as well as state and national charitable, service and relief efforts. Our employees bring the passion and energy that makes our organization so successful to their individual volunteering efforts, and we are proud of everything they’ve accomplished to make our world a better place.
