Hello, Colleague!

Stefan Hahn from the Investigation Office 
at the Wolfsburg plant.


"Protecting informants and the individuals in question is very important to us. For example, employees have the option to submit their reports anonymously."

What exactly does your current role at Volkswagen involve?

I have been at Volkswagen since November 2017 and work in the Central Investigation Office in Wolfsburg. Employees can report misconduct there. When we receive a report, we check whether there has been a specific violation of the rules and, if so, what kind. What happens 
next depends on the outcome of this evaluation. Protecting informants and the individuals in question is very important to us. For example, employees have the option to submit their reports anonymously. People being reported who have not demonstrably broken any rules are supported in getting back on their feet. As a rule, the number of people who are informed about these reports is always kept to a minimum.

What is the best experience you have had so far at Volkswagen?

Last November, the Central Investigation Office introduced itself at the staff meeting. It was interesting to encounter so many employees outside our office, and to talk about such an important topic as the reporting system.

What should colleagues visiting Wolfsburg be sure to see or do?

We had a fun Group Compliance Christmas party at the Strike ​Bowling
 Center, which is a great leisure location. Otherwise, I’m not so familiar with Wolfsburg yet. That’s because I live 
in Berlin and commute to the office.
 If any colleagues want to visit the capital city, I recommend the upcoming Maifeste in Kreuzbergor the Fête de 
la Musique for fans of open-air events.
