ABOUT CHRISTIANS AT DAIMLER
Numerous employees at Daimler are committed to ensuring that basic Christian values become visible in personal working life within the company and in social responsibility outside the company.
Their concern is that Christians take their Christian 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.
There are more than 35 Daimler prayer groups in different locations, to which Christians of different denominations and congregations regularly meet outside their working hours in order to pray for the company, its superiors, and colleagues. In addition, annual ‘Daimler Christian Meetings’ have taken place outside the company since 2006, to which all Daimler employees are invited who stand for Christian values also in their day-to-day work. The Daimler Christian Meetings are organized by members of the Daimler prayer groups.

REVIEW OF LAST DAIMLER CHRISTIAN MEETING
On November 17, 2018, the 13th Daimler Christian Meeting (DCM) took place with over 400 participants. The event in Weinstadt-Beutelsbach was held under the motto ‘As in heaven – so at Daimler’. The contribution of the keynote speaker Stefan Vatter was overwritten with “What the regency of heaven has to do with our spiritual calling on earth.”
Once again, all Daimler employees, including former Daimler employees and contractors, who are interested in topics of the Christian faith and who are committed to Christian values in professional working life, were invited. In addition, a few employees from competitor and supplier companies took part.
As every year, the diversity of the participants was impressive. Daimler employees from various hierarchical levels, from the most diverse locations and areas and from the most diverse denominations and communities were represented. Employees from Tuscaloosa, Detroit, Portland, Beijing, East London, Bangalore, Tokyo and Legnica were able to follow the event via live stream.
