Braunschweig, 8 February 2018. An accolade that speaks for itself: in the annual Focus Business ranking for 2018, Volkswagen Financial Services, Europe's leading automobile financial services provider, have once again been rated among Germany's top employers. In addition, they also received a special award in the "Healthy & Fit" category for offers in the areas of health, work-life balance and nutrition.

The awards are based on a data pool of 127,000 evaluations from the Kununu employer assessment portal, a poll of Xing members and an online survey conducted by Statista. "This renewed distinction makes us proud because it confirms that our employees value our sustained commitment to a good corporate culture," says Christiane Hesse, Member of the Management Board with responsibility for Human Resources at Volkswagen Financial Services AG. Particularly decisive for the analysis was whether or not employees recommend their employer to others. In this respect, Volkswagen Financial Services achieved a figure well above the average with a recommendation rate of 94%.
