In the first “People of Change” video series, our colleagues talked about change and how they deal with it. In the face of the current situation that affects our private as well as our professional lives, we created “People of Change 2.0”. In a crowd-sourced Daimler self-portrait, our colleagues from all over the world share their thoughts on motivation, happiness, creativity and how they maintain team spirit.
For our colleagues creativity manifests itself in realizing their own amazing ideas, creating and seeing things with a different lens, and much more… How do you express your creativity?
Our colleagues show their motivation by getting out of their comfort zone, doing what they always wanted to and much more… What motivates you?
Everyone defines happiness individually: being able to work from anywhere, putting a smile on someone else's face, and much more… What makes you happy in times like these?
Working cohesively towards a common goal, creating a positive work environment, and much more is what our colleagues portray as team spirit… What does team spirit mean to you these days?
Our first People of Change video series
Timothy Sackett, talks about lifelong learning and his personal experiences.
„It does take some intentionality and awareness to even just kind of stop and acknowledge that: Life is learning.“
Mashudu Munyai, is telling us why she sees a car door through different eyes than others:
"When I see the cars that I am building driving around, and my friends or family driving these cars, looking at a door- they just see a “door”. But I see the value and the effort we put in building that door."
Chulanga Perera, talks about experiences and mistakes and how he tries every day to help shape the future:
“How can my learnings, struggles, failures and all my happiness play a part within my organization and make us become much better than were we are at the moment?”
Zena Ballout, speaks about intercultural experience and how she has developed:
„What’s fascinating is the search for this feeling of excitement. The feeling of the unknown. That’s something that motivates us to keeping changing.“
Shiqi Zhang, talks about changing workplaces and how she finds her way in a new environment:
„Each time I moved from one country to another, it was a big change for me. I moved several times between China and Germany. This is where Daimler comes in. It is such a big company with so many different working models. It doesn’t matter where you live or maybe move to, you can always continue your career at Daimler”.
Bruna Murcia Santos, likes stability but nevertheless is boldly taking a step into the unknown. Family is especially important to her:
"My long-term goal is to achieve a good work-life balance. I'm always looking for a thing that makes me happier a thing that makes me happier or something that brings benefits for the company. And something good in relationship with that."
