Scania Top Team is an awarded competitive training programme which was first held in Sweden in 1989 to enhance the skills, knowledge, professionalism and teamwork in Scania’s workshops all over the world. The focus area of the 2017-2018 competition is ‘driving the shift’ which is line with Scania’s objective of being recognized as a leader in the shift towards a sustainable transport system.
To satisfy customer demands for high availability and premium services, Scania’s service network relies on dedicated, professional, competent and service-minded personnel. The Scania Top Team competition was created to further enhance the skills in Scania’s workshops all over the world.
The competition which is only open to service and parts teams is aimed at increasing the knowledge of Scania products and working tools and fostering and strengthening team spirit amongst our service employees.
“The ultimate goal for Scania workshops worldwide is to provide services that support customers’ business,” says Christian Levin, Executive Vice President, Commercial Operations at Scania.
“This in turn requires a highly proficient service staff. Scania Top Team is a fantastic way of celebrating the brains, technological skills and teamwork that characterise the people who work in the front line every day.”
The teams are motivated and appreciated during the competition for their hard work and it also enables the company to enhance its brand awareness amongst our customers and potential customers who will benefit from more effective services from our service teams.
