BMW plan to create 4,000 jobs
12 March 2012
BMW plans to hire about 4,000 workers in 2012, having increased its workforce by 5% last year, according to its CEO Norbert Reithofer.
The planned expansion should take the global workforce to about 104,000, capping a positive two-year recruitment trend. The acquisition of ING Car Lease took the global headcount at BMW to 100,306 at the end of 2011, the first increase in personnel since 2007.
"At the end of last year, the BMW Group employed about 100,000 people. We will hire about as many new employees as last year, especially in the fields of R&D, purchasing and sales," Reithofer told Automotive News Europe.
BMW employed 118,489 people in 1998; it’s record-number of employees.
More Flexibility in the workplace with Borer's FUSION T&A System.
Borer's Time and Attendance system is designed to offer employees more flexibility in the workplace. With more and more emphasis being placed on work life balance, organisations must define procedures to support employees.
One way to do this is by implementing flexitime by providing staff with flexible working hours to accommodate those working part-time, family priorities, covering absences and job sharing.
