Automotive Practice

Organizations that create and manufacture automotive cars, parts, and related technologies that transport people, commodities, and materials face intense competition from both established businesses and up-and-coming players in the global mobility market. The auto industry is transforming in a way to be able to embrace new technological developments, rapidly increasing electrification of vehicles, the development of autonomous vehicles, and completely new value propositions centered on connectivity.

Being able to operate effectively in this industry today requires working collaboratively with companies that are in other industries and are different in the way they operate, such as Google, Apple, and data providers. It will be crucial to have the vision and confidence to innovate, work together, and prioritize customers.  



In the automotive industry, the shift towards electronic and digital technologies is driving the need for new skills and competencies. Traditional mechanical engineering skills are still important, but they are being complemented by a range of new technical abilities related to electronics, software, and connectivity.

As the industry continues to evolve, it is crucial for companies to have a talent strategy that helps them identify and develop leaders with the skills and capabilities needed to thrive in this new environment. This can involve creating talent profiles that define the key skills and competencies required for success, and then assessing the workforce against these profiles to identify gaps and develop a plan for reskilling and upskilling employees.

Having a strong talent strategy in place can help companies navigate the challenges of disruptive industry change and remain competitive in an increasingly digital and interconnected world. It is essential for businesses to invest in the development of their workforce and ensure that they have the right people with the right skills to succeed in the future.

Organizations must reconsider their approach to leadership and culture in light of ongoing developments and whole new value propositions.   FPC of St. Lawrence serves large and midsize global companies and has unrivaled access to leading automotive engineers and competent leaders.
