Continental's executive board member for Human Resources, Elke Strathmann, engages in conversation with Continental junior ambassadors in Hanover
"In competition for the best junior staff, you, our employees are the decisive factor that contributes to our success. With your involvement at universities and schools that goes far beyond day-to-day operations and projects, you do not just create a link between business and education and science. True to the saying 'People attract people', you give Continental a face which strengthens our image as an attractive employer. This allows us to attract the highly-qualified young talent that we need to ensure our success," says Elke Strathmann, Executive Board Member for HR at Continental, in Hanover.
Long before the Ambassador Program was officially kicked off in 2003, Continental employees were involved in educational institutions; today, more than 600 Continental employees, referred to as Ambassadors, represent the international automotive supplier worldwide. Using research projects, lectures, company presentations, university fairs and much more, the ambassadors initiate and shape the dialogue between business and science at more than 250 universities around the world.
Projects of the Ambassador Program include the sponsoring of national as well as international teams at the Formula Student Germany and the fan festivals with public viewing at universities during the UEFA EURO 2012™ and the 2014 FIFA World Cup™.
