Shanghai, China, January 25, 2021 - BorgWarner was certified as “Top Employers China 2021” by Top Employers Institute, a global human resources (HR) certification agency, for the third consecutive year. The company was assessed on more than 400 best practices and was recognized for its achievements in a host of specific HR practices, including talent strategy, leadership development, recruitment and training, as well as learning and development. The award demonstrates BorgWarner's outstanding performance in building its employer brand, corporate culture and supportive workplace, as well as its long-term commitment to the China business.

“We are honored to achieve the Top Employers China certification for the third consecutive year,” said Tom Tan, Vice President of BorgWarner Inc. and President of BorgWarner China, “At BorgWarner, we are committed to building a diverse and inclusive corporate culture that provides employees with long-term career development opportunities,  cultivates the employer brand, attracts and develops innovative talent and contributes to the development of China’s vigorous automobile industry.”

Upgrading corporate beliefs to embrace changes and challenges

When BorgWarner completed the acquisition of Delphi Technologies in October 2020, the team assessed the corporate culture of the two companies. As a result, BorgWarner launched a series of reorganization measures, including different forms of communications to enhance understanding as a way to integrate Delphi Technologies’ businesses and teams while also upgrading the BorgWarner Beliefs. Guided by the refreshed corporate beliefs of “Inclusion, Integrity, Excellence, Responsibility, Collaboration,” the company will continue to uphold the values of respecting people, down-to-earth mentality, results orientation, commitment and trust, and building BorgWarner into a more inclusive organization, with the goal of improving the environment of our communities and the world as a whole.

Employee Assistance Plan to provide comprehensive support for employees

BorgWarner has always prioritized the health and safety of employees and their families, fulfilling its commitment to protecting employees, their families and society. After the outbreak of COVID-19, BorgWarner rolled out the "Employee Assistance Plan (EAP)" to provide unique mental health support and better care for employees and their families. The plan includes around-the-clock support to employees, providing them with mental, physical and emotional consultancy and assistance.

Digital and innovative technologies to empower talent development

While challenging daily business operations, the pandemic also brought opportunities for BorgWarner in China. In 2020, BorgWarner accelerated the digitalization of its HR system, gradually shifting the offline paper-based work to an online system. The company will soon launch a digital HR platform, aiming to provide employees with integrated online services including onboarding, digital document signing, training, compensation and benefits administration, and facility management.

In order to improve recruitment efficiency and expand corporate influence, BorgWarner launched an online campus recruitment campaign to enhance the pre-employment experience of candidates. It incorporates more innovative marketing techniques including WeChat recruitment, chatbots, data analysis and candidate discovery, and closely tracks the new employee orientation process and their experience over the 12 months following onboarding. These initiatives help the company improve talent selection, employment, development and retention, setting a good example for the application of digital technologies in recruitment.
