Our employees are both an important stakeholder group and key players in our business operations. That is why employee relations characterized by fairness and trust are more than just an ethical and legal obligation for us. They are the main prerequisite for the successful management of our business activities.
An effective human resources policy contributes to this by keeping track of the rights and needs of employees in the same way as their talents and qualifications. It defines the framework for efficient deployment of personnel and for the optimal performance of employees through their high motivation and job satisfaction.
Our sustainable human resources strategy
Our human resources strategy is firmly anchored in our group-wide sustainability strategy. It rests on the five pillars or profitability, a competitive workforce, future-oriented management expertise, high attractiveness as an employer, and professional organization. On the basis of these strategic target dimensions, we have derived 14 central fields of action. These include:
diversity and equal opportunity
generation management and work-life balance
productivity increases through the efforts of a highly qualified workforce
flexibility management aimed at market-oriented product controlling
Culture of diversity at Daimler
In our globally operating company with employees from over 140 nations, diversity is both a daily reality and a challenge. That is why we made a system of professional diversity management with a long-term horizon into an integral component of our human resource policy at an early stage and attach great importance to diversity management for the competitiveness of our company.
A culture of diversity requires the existence of framework conditions – such as the unequivocal rejection of any form of discrimination and the creation of a working environment that is free of prejudices.
