In an environment characterized by dynamic development, growing requirements and increasingly complex technologies, products and processes, experienced managers, qualified specialist workers and focused junior staff play an important part in helping the Group to achieve its corporate targets with their knowledge, skills, experience and motivation. Companies in the Rheinmetall Group are faced with increasingly tough competition from other companies to gain qualified personnel. Acquiring skilled professionals for these companies is therefore a key task in HR work. The Rheinmetall Group offers fair, performance-based remuneration that is in line with the market, extensive fringe benefits and pension schemes, diverse opportunities for continuing professional development and interesting opportunities for promotion.
In addition to its own training for junior employees, Rheinmetall uses traditional and modern employee selection methods and is also in close contact with universities, colleges and research institutes in order to get to know suitable science, technology and business graduates at an early stage.
As they did in previous years, various institutes once again assessed the corporate image of German companies in 2020. Rheinmetall was again selected as one of the 100 most attractive employers. In the Engineering Students Edition of the trendence study, we were ranked in 43rd place (previous year: 41st), and in the categories of young professionals, mechanical engineering and automotive suppliers we came in 15th and 10th place, compared with 14th and 9th the year before. In the Universum rankings (Germany Top 100 Ideal Employers) in the category of engineering professionals, we were ranked in 34th place in the year under review, after reaching 23rd the year before.
