WILL FREE UP THE CAPACITY IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC

The extra capacity will be used to build additional KODIAQ and
KAROQ SUVs and another ŠKODA model. In this regard, it was
decided that the next generation of the ŠKODA KODIAQ would

All employees have access to the ŠKODA
Space Employee Portal. Both production and
oﬃce workers can get to us via their smart
devices or computers. The coronacrisis
brought new challenges and accelerated the
company’s digitalization needs. Here are
the 5 areas that we currently focus on
with great intensity:
Editing, visibility and
Function over form. We are adjusting
the portal to make it as eﬀective as possible
as a working tool. That means less scrolling,
clicking, more eﬃcient use of space, smart
devices optimalization, etc.
We continue to support employees even
when they‘re working from home and
we try to simplify the exchange between
the employees and our company.
The notiﬁcation center is another new
feature we’d like to introduce. It will ensure
company and personal notiﬁcations
for the followed Employee Portal content,
news and essential work events related
to your Area or you speciﬁcally.
Further Group Integration
Knowledge is the cornerstone.
We are trying to break down barriers
inside not just in our company, but
in the whole Group as well.
More info about the planned features, that we’d
like to implement this and the next year, will be
shared at ŠKODA Space before Christmas.
We are also preparing a survey for you to help us
ﬁnd out what features you’d like to add and what
else we can improve.
