FIGIEFA is one of the founding members of the Talents4AA (Talents for the Automotive Aftermarket) association, officially created in Paris in March last year. It has the aim of attracting and retaining talents of all ages and origins, in all professions, in our sector.
Undeniably, the Automotive Aftermarket is a multifaceted fascinating sector offering a tremendous choice and range of career opportunities at all levels, from the workshop to top management. However, all the participants – from parts manufacturers, distributors, and repairers – are facing the very same challenge: to make the sector widely recognized and to attract and retain talent.
As studies confirm, the Automotive Aftermarket is most often unknown to young potentials and, moreover, is not considered attractive enough. To face this challenge, several International Trading Groups, distributors, federations, and suppliers decided in January 2020 to launch the common collaborative initiative called Talents4AA. In March 2022, Talents4AA took the legal form of a registered association, with 11 founding partners joining forces to make the Automotive Aftermarket take the market position it deserves and make it a desirable place for all talents to be.
