An independent, third-party audit resulted in certification of Volkswagen Chattanooga as a top employer for 2019. Volkswagen Chattanooga is one of 23 U.S. employers to receive this acknowledgment from the Top Employers Institute, a global independent human resources certification company.

To certify a company as a top employer, TEI assesses and validates 600 working condition practices and indicators.

TEI specifically acknowledged Volkswagen Chattanooga’s efforts in three areas: Workforce planning, career and succession management, and talent strategy

Additional human resource practices evaluated by the organization included onboarding, learning and development, performance management, leadership development, compensation and benefits and culture.

“We view this recognition as a reinforcement of our commitment to building a positive company culture and fostering a great place to work,” says Nicole Koesling, Volkswagen Chattanooga senior vice president of human resources. “This certification strengthens our commitment to continue building quality careers in Tennessee.”

The annual, international research recognizes employers around the world who achieve the required standards for top employment practices and working conditions.

The Top Employer Institute has certified and recognized more than 1,500 companies in 118 countries.
