More than 8,000 employees are working at Daimler Financial Services, a company that has been recently ranked as one of world’s best 25 employers.
The independent Great Place to Work Institute confirmed the results during the award ceremony for the World’s Best Multinational Workplaces 2014 in San Francisco. This outcome makes Daimler Financial Services the first German company to be ranked in this fiercely contested competition of the world’s most attractive employers. Furthermore, an independent study revealed that nine out of ten employees rate the company as a “great place to work”.
In 2014, more than 6,200 companies took part in the survey conducted by Great Place to Work Institute. Out of these, only 2,800 met the requirements in order to qualify for the “World’s Best Multinational Companies”. For companies to qualify for the global list, they must be one of the top employers in at least five countries, with more than 5,000 employees and at least 40 percent of its employees working outside the company’s home country. According to the Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler Financial Services, Klaus Entenmann, “becoming a great place to work is a mindset”.
Becoming a great place to work is a mindset
Daimler’s financial division clearly follows the corporate values. The company wants to preserve a culture of trust, individual responsibility and openness to innovation and, last but not least, the love and dedication for one’s work. The Great Place to Work Institute has been analyzing similar attitudes since 2007, by conducting anonymous employee surveys.
Daimler Financial Services offers financing, leasing and insurance opportunities, fleet management, banking services and innovative mobility services, thus supporting Daimler’s sales. The end of the third quarter of 2014 brought almost €94 billion in company’s accounts.
