Lamborghini is building their future with 50 percent of the new employees being under 30 years old. Master car builders have to start somewhere. Their apprenticeship program stands alone as it focuses on family life and happiness to promote a healthy balance of work and life.
This is a great sign for our industry. It could be part of a planned growth for the company, or it could be a response to the Agnelli family transitioning Ferrari into a public entity. With rumors of Maranello’s intention to increase production, Lamborghini is ready for battle. For more info check out the press release below.
2014 was an extraordinary year for Automobili Lamborghini: not only from the standpoint of sales (2,530 cars delivered to customers), but other indicators also demonstrate the growth of the House of the Raging Bull. In 2014, the company hired 192 highly qualified technicians and specialists, bringing the total number of permanent employees to 1,175. Over the last four years, nearly 500 new employees have been hired, all with open-ended contracts. Further recruitment is planned in 2015 with equally significant numbers.
Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, commented:”Lamborghini is undergoing a strong phase of growth in both sales and in terms of recruitment. We invest significantly in our people: we are committed to continuously seeking excellence in all our employees and all that we do. In 2015 we plan to hire further.”
The hiring focus has been on young talent. In fact, 50% of the new appointments are aged under 30, a countertrend to the unemployment rate for young adults in Italy, with the aim of continuing investment in professional skills development.
