Every day, the global team at Aptiv brings together the power of diverse cultures, backgrounds and experiences to solve the toughest challenges in mobility. We invest in having the right tools, technologies, and infrastructure to give employees a workspace to collaborate and use Agile methods as we scale our Software focus to reduce development cycles/build times.
Collaborating across time zones and countries gives us unique perspectives to drive our imaginations and foster innovation.
Our goal is to make mobility safer, greener and more connected everywhere, and we rely on our global team to make it happen.
At Aptiv, we don’t just see the world differently; we work to change it by developing technology that makes mobility safer, greener and more connected. Our innovations save lives with our active safety technology that reduces vehicle accidents by over 25%, our high-voltage products help reduce emissions (~100 million tons), and we connect people with the world around them in new ways. Since 2020, our business awards have exceeded $74 billion.
Employees at Aptiv are inspired not only by our mission but also by our ability to make our dreams become a reality. As we build these sustainable solutions, our employees take pride in knowing that we do so sustainably and responsibly. Through our four pillars of People, Products, Planet and Platform, we ensure that we care for our people and communities, minimize our impact on the planet and manage our company according to an enduring ethical platform.
At Aptiv, we value everyone’s perspective and foster an environment of respect and inclusion. Our flat organizational structure enables us to learn from each other, help each other, and give our employees the autonomy and flexibility to share their ideas and solutions.
Leveraging our employees’ diverse backgrounds and experiences allows us to make better decisions and improve our employees’ experience. We are proud to have been named a Financial Times Diversity Leader for a second year and that women account for ~50 percent of our global workforce.
We have built an ethical culture throughout the organization, providing tools, training, and multiple channels to speak up, such as our DRIVE line, to ensure we do the right thing, the right way. For the 11th consecutive year, Aptiv has been named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies by Ethisphere.
Throughout the year, we listen to our employees through cross-organization listening sessions with our CEO and SVPs. As well as engagement pulse checks to ensure we support every employee in their career journey at Aptiv. We take that feedback to continuously improve the employee experience, making our company a great workplace.
Aptiv continually strives to create and maintain an environment where innovation thrives, and our employees are empowered to think and act like owners.
To this end, Aptiv provides coaching and mentoring options across many organizational levels. We also offer internal job opportunities, including global rotations and stretch assignments, to help colleagues develop and grow their careers.
We manage succession planning as part of our operating cadence, and Aptiv is committed to growing the next generation of leaders. Our established leadership programs give leaders the tools to be effective today while preparing them for future challenges.
We also leverage Aptiv Academy, our online learning management system, across the business, using in-person, online, and virtual reality learning opportunities.
Our culture reflects a system of organizational values that serve as a common denominator to unite our diverse workforce and inform how we select, promote, and reward our best people.
Our values – Play to Win, One Team, Act with Urgency, Passion for Results, Operate with Respect, and Think and Act Like Owners – help us move each other forward to achieve our goals.
Our goals align with these values, emphasizing that how we achieve our performance is just as important as the outcome. Those values are expressed through a set of behaviors aligned with various job roles and business units. We measure these behaviors explicitly at the end-of-the-year performance and nine-box talent reviews to help our employees Grow@Aptiv.
Aptiv designs programs and practices to engage and inspire our employees. These programs include:
• Leadership Development: Invest across Aptiv to ensure our employees have support to align with their professional opportunities at Aptiv.
• Affinity Groups: Our Women’s Network supports, inspires, and empowers women through an inclusive forum, and we added an Aptiv Black & Hispanic/Latin Affinity group.
• GoAptiv App: Offers an open environment to connect teams globally, provide two-way communication, recognize others, and promote the employee brand.
• Communication platforms to engage, inform and inspire our employees: Our leaders regularly host “Ask Me Anything” sessions with a cross-section of employees to address what is on their minds. We also have quarterly all-employee broadcasts, monthly leadership dialogues, and employee events such as family days, Value Olympics, local volunteering, STEM activities, and more.
• Grow@Aptiv: Enabling employees to move across teams, divisions, and locations is at the core of our people strategy, allowing our colleagues to prosper.
Our CEO puts people first and promotes the importance of moving forward as one team. He is focused on strengthening our business foundation, ensuring we have the talent and the operational footprint needed to execute, resulting in a more robust and sustainable business model for the future.
To help our high-performing team succeed, he fosters a culture that values diverse backgrounds, prioritizes safety, and recognizes that talent development is a never-ending process. Investing in our people at every stage of their careers and in the communities where they live, and work isn’t just the right thing to do — it’s good business.
From a governance standpoint, we believe an experienced, diverse, and engaged board is the bedrock of good governance and corporate responsibility. Aptiv’s board is 40% diverse.
Comprehensive benefits packages are tailored to where we operate, giving our people the flexibility to choose the options and coverage levels to meet the needs of their families.
Unique benefits include:
• 401(k) match: Whether an employee contributes or not, Aptiv automatically contributes on their behalf, taking action now to help build savings for their later years.
• Flexible/voluntary benefits: Employees can select whom they use their benefits to meet the interest and their families. E.g., paying down student debt, pet insurance, etc.
• Live Well: Employees learn about various health and wellness subjects.
