VW subsidiary places temporary workers with competitors

AutoVision GmbH helps out competition and expands to new industrial sectors

Wolfsburg, Germany. AutoVision GmbH's People business sector is increasing its personnel related services.

"We no longer work only in an industrial sector orientated way," People boss Torge Brandenburg told Automobilwoche. "We want to place our workers by focusing on their talents in future."

AutoVision, a VW Group subsidiary, recently opened a People branch in Hamburg as part of its expansion.

"We are following an internal change of paradigm and also want to place temporary workers in companies that are not part of the Volkswagen Group," Brandenburg said.

He said that a locksmith who was employed within maintenance at VW would be just as suitable for a job on a repair dock.

People will soon open more branches away from the VW head offices in Dortmund and Frankfurt.

Outlets outside Germany are also planned. Said Brandenburg: "We will use VW locations abroad such as Brussels or Posen as bridgeheads."

People has already been successful with DaimlerChrysler. Mercedes officials told Automobilwoche that about 100 of People's temporary workers will help out during the production start-up of the new A class at the Rastatt plant.
