ABOUT CHRISTIANS AT DAIMLER
Numerous employees at Daimler are committed to making basic Christian values visible in personal working life within the company and in social responsibility outside the company.
It is their concern that Christians take their values as a standard and live them not only in their private life, but also in their everyday working life. They are convinced that this attitude has a lasting positive influence on their company and also contributes to the fairness towards supplier companies and competitors.
The network of ‘Christians at Daimler’ consists of more than 1,200 members. There are approximately 40 Daimler prayer groups at different locations, to which Christians of different confessions and congregations regularly meet outside of their working hours to pray for their company, their superiors, and their colleagues. In addition, annual Daimler Christian Meetings have been taking place outside the company since 2006, to which all Daimler employees are invited who also want to stand up for basic Christian values in their everyday work. The Daimler Christian Meetings are organized by members of the Daimler Prayer Groups.

APPEARANCE ON THE DAIMLER INTRANET
Members from a Möhringer prayer group have initiated a public appearance of ‘Christians at Daimler’ on the company’s internal intranet. This went live in December 2018. When accessing the Daimler internal intranet, this page can be reached via the link https://social.intra.corpintra.net/groups/christen-bei-daimler-christians-at-daimler/.
The motivation behind this is:
- Worldwide networking of the Christians at Daimler
- Contact point for “new” Christians in the company
- Contact point for interested non-Christians
- Find the closest prayer group
- Reference to upcoming Daimler Christian Meetings
REVIEW OF THE LAST DAIMLER CHRISTIAN MEETING
The 14th Daimler Christian Meeting (DCM) took place in Weinstadt-Beutelsbach on November 16, 2019. The motto of the event was ‘Create Your Faith’. The main speaker was Daniel Böcking, deputy editor-in-chief of BILD, with the lecture title ‘It is not possible to believe just a little’. More than 500 visitors took part in the event, including Dr. Dieter Zetsche, the former CEO of Daimler.
As every year, all Daimler employees, including former Daimler employees and contractors, who are interested in topics of Christian faith and who are committed to Christian values in their professional lives, were invited. In addition to Daimler members, around 55 employees from competitor and supplier companies, who just before had attended the 100-person Germany-wide meeting of ‘Christians in the Automotive Industry (CAI)’ at the same location, took part in the event as well.
