Daimler mobilizes people — not only through its fascinating automobiles but also as an attractive employer. The company offers a broad spectrum of opportunities for professional and personal development as well as a work environment characterized by respect and cooperation. We do so because the skills and enthusiasm of our employees are a major force that is helping us achieve growth. Our pioneering products are created by a team of more than 270,000 employees all over the world. We foster a pioneering spirit.
“I’d like to continue growing, both professionally and personally. Daimler off ers me outstanding opportunities.” Asmara Yeman, an alumna of the Daimler CAReer Talent Program
With the right teams in the right place at the right time. On its way to the top, Daimler is powered by a unique force — the skills and ideas of its employees.
Daimler is shaping the mobility of the future through innovative technologies and mobility concepts. The crucial factor that makes this possible is our employees. Thanks to their skills and their opportunities for further development, our teams are able to create pioneering vehicles and services. Promoting equal opportunities, fairness and a spirit of cooperation and trust are not only ethical and legal obligations for Daimler; they are the foundation of our company’s success all over the world.
We aim to attract and retain the most talented employees, act on our sense of social responsibility, and promote diversity in our company wherever we operate. As an attractive employer, Daimler focuses on the rights and requirements of all its employees, as well as on their talents and qualifications — independently of their age, place of origin, gender or other characteristics. Companies all over the world are competing to attract skilled employees. In this context, optimally designed working conditions are a crucial factor in the effort to attract and retain outstandingly trained, highly motivated, and loyal employees.
Diversity brings better results. Daimler values the different characteristics, talents, and abilities of all its employees. We are convinced that diversity brings better results, and we therefore systematically deploy these various talents and abilities in the interests of the company. Diversity management at Daimler includes many different activities all over the world in all of the company’s divisions. It is firmly anchored in our corporate strategy and our corporate culture. Our current focus is on gender diversity — especially our efforts to put more women in management positions — generation management, and the internationality of our worldwide organization.
A good work-life balance supports performance. Daimler offers a variety of work-life balance services that help the company’s employees combine their private and professional lives harmoniously. Firmly anchored in its corporate culture are services such as e-mail regulations for employees who are currently not available, guidelines for managers, company day-care centers, regionally adjusted flexible worktime models, and healthcare programs. The aim of all of these services is to ensure that the employees can responsibly manage their individual resources.
The employer of choice for talented young people. Outstanding potential employees can choose between a number of job offers. That’s why it is becoming increasingly important for Daimler to position itself as the employer of choice for students, graduates and young people beginning their careers. In order to get young people interested in joining the company, Daimler engages in a dialog with them at schools, universities and job fairs, and on the Internet. In addition to the company’s careers website, social media are becoming an increasingly important recruitment channel. Daimler also uses offers such as the Daimler Student Partnership and the company-wide trainee program CAReer to attract young college graduates.
