Learning

Learn something new every day

The lines between the analog and digital worlds are becoming increasingly blurred – vehicles warn drivers of dangers, humans and robots work hand in hand, and components communicate automatically with machines in the factory. To leverage the opportunities offered by digitalization, we have to make sure our company and our workforce are prepared for this transformation. So we believe that curiosity, openness to new ideas, and a willingness to grow are essential qualities in our employees.

Promoting and developing these qualities is important to us. Our numerous tailored vocational training and continuing professional development programs are a regular feature of our corporate landscape. At Continental, internal social media are increasingly used to foster the transparent transfer of knowledge, just as creative offices help advance the exchange of ideas.

We strongly believe that lifelong learning and the intensive sharing of knowledge are necessary to the development of innovative ideas and solutions. And it’s nice to know that learning new things isn’t just good for your professional growth, but – as numerous studies have shown – also makes you happy.
