Schaeffler India

The Schaeffler Group is a global integrated automotive and industrial supplier. The Group’s lasting success is based on its ability to deliver highest quality, outstanding technology and strong innovation. Globalization, urbanization, digitalization, scarcity of resources, renewable energies and the growing demand for affordable mobility are leading to changed market requirements and business models. Based on these megatrends, the Schaeffler Group has developed its „Mobility for tomorrow“ strategy concept, with which the company is focusing on four areas across divisions and regional borders: Environmentally Friendly Drives, Urban Mobility, Interurban Mobility and the Energy Chain.

The Group makes substantial investments in training and advanced training. It participates in practice-oriented degree courses in cooperation with numerous universities and the Indo-German Training Centre (IGTC) is one of these. It pools its many opportunities, for employee development worldwide, under the umbrella of the Schaeffler Academy.

Some of our key offerings in India are the Schaeffler Trainee Engineer Program (STEP), the Young Leaders Program (YLP), the Accelerated Leadership Program (ALP), the Line Operations Program (LOP aimed at excellence in Manufacturing) and the First Time Manager Program (FTM). A synergy between these platforms help us ensure a healthy exchange of expertise and build a network of ‘learners’. This has earned us the prestigious Golden Peacock Award for Excellence in Training, 2016.

Schaeffler India and IGTC have collaborated for many years on various initiatives. We are happy to partner with IGTC to address aspirations of the young students pursuing its Post Graduate Programme in Business Administration (PGPBA). This long lasting relation has provided us with multiple opportunities to network with students and alumni alike.

The partnership has also given us the opportunity to source candidates for hiring as well as engage with other German organizations through the IGTC facilitated Indo- German HR Partner Forum. IGTC builds platforms for engagements to share best practices as well as showcase ones company at mega-events such as the Indo-German Urban Mela, where Schaeffler was present.

We look forward to creating more leaders for a future- ready Schaeffler with IGTC!!
