Some guests had brought their shirts to the “Shop and more” at Gate 17 in Wolfsburg. Shortly after the opening of the first Service Point at Volkswagen, they handed these shirts in for washing and ironing.
Taking clothing is only one of the services available at the new Service Points. They can provide different services – depending on demand and provided that their operation is economically feasible. This includes selling food to eat at work and at home – from vending machines, so employees can stock up on delicious carrot soup around the clock. Also in the works: the acceptance and delivery of packages and grocery pick-up stations.
“Volkswagen is an attractive employer, but we want to get even better. We agreed on that in the Pact for the Future, and we are putting it into practice. More practical services we can use to make everyday life easier for our employees are one result,” says Chief Human Resources Officer Gunnar Kilian.
Deputy Works Council Chairman Stephan Wolf emphasizes, “The Works Council has been working for years to ensure that colleagues can better balance work and family life. With the new services at the Service Point, we are taking another step toward giving employees more time for their families.”
