Brand New Advanced Digital Talent Development System

BorgWarner prioritizes the cultivation of local talents, leadership development and performance management through its “70-20-10” approach. This methodology is based on the fact that 70 percent of an employee’s experience is accumulated through challenges in daily work, 20 percent comes from mentoring and sharing with their mentors and leaders, and 10 percent stems from training programs. In 2019, BorgWarner updated its recruitment and on-boarding processes, incorporating more scientific marketing techniques. The updated talent development system involves WeChat-based recruitment, data analysis, candidate discovery and more. Its new process enhances the candidates’ pre-employment experience, allowing for better two-way communication. Additionally, BorgWarner launched multiple online education courses like Level-up Leadership and Potential, all designed to help employees improve their leadership and capabilities through online learning and offline communications. For better employee services and platform integration, BorgWarner developed a new performance module, which replaces the previous talent management system, effectively consolidating the various HR modules and systems for greatly improved availability and timeliness.

To enhance the employee experience, BorgWarner made changes to its employee e-learning strategy this year to make it more user-friendly, intelligent and convenient, while also providing support for business development. BorgWarner uses the efficient, easy-to-use employee self-service system (ESS), as well as Yammer for internal communications, and the WeChat and LinkedIn platforms.

Excellent Diversified Corporate Culture

Another key area of focus for BorgWarner is company diversity and inclusion. With this in mind, the company rolled out a series of programs this year, including Female Engineers, China Graduate Program and the annual Talent Review. In terms of employee well-being, BorgWarner provides employees with a healthy work environment, and encourages them to actively participate in regular sports events and competitions designed to enhance their company pride and satisfaction. Furthermore, BorgWarner administers the CEO’s Safety Excellence Award, Enactus Program, Small Orange Lights and Turbo Run. These programs result in the growing awareness of corporate social responsibilities across the entire organization, enhanced overall management capabilities and an increase in attracted talent.

Comprehensive Compensation System Featuring Five Core Values

BorgWarner includes compensation, benefits, employee recognition, talent development opportunities and work-life balance into its comprehensive compensation management system, providing employees with competitive compensation and benefit (C&B) plans. BorgWarner attaches great importance to employees’ sense of pride, belonging and their individual needs.
