Especially in times of change, it’s important to set your sights ﬁrmly on integrity as a goal and also rethink what integrity actually means. All of our measures for fostering integrity aim to be sustainable. They are helping to steadily develop our culture of integrity throughout the Daimler Group and ﬁrmly establish responsible action as part of our everyday business conduct. Through our integrity management we intend to set standards in the entire automotive and mobility sectors and contribute to the sustainable success of our company.
Orientation of the integrity strategy: Shared values provide orientation in times of technological transformation and societal change. Integrity also plays an important role in the development of new products and services. That’s why our preventive integrity-related activities begin with decision-making processes and thus help to protect the company’s reputation and reduce legal risks.
Oﬀers of support for managers and employees: In order to ﬁrmly establish integrity at all levels and in all areas, we are continuously expanding the measures we oﬀer to our employees to support them in their daily work. These measures include
- training courses and dialog events on integrity, compliance and legal issues
- internal and external qualiﬁcation programs for responsible employees from our integrity, compliance and legal organiza tions
Evaluation of integrity management at Daimler: In order to precisely adapt our oﬀers to our target groups and continuously improve them, we are developing a measurement process that will enable us to assess the eﬀectiveness of our integrity measures and to reﬁne them.
