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 15th Daimler Christian Meeting (DCM) took place in Weinstadt-Beutelsbach on November 14, 2020. The motto of the event was #Stay Tuned – Overcome crises.
Due to Corona, the number of participants on site was limited. For this reason, the entire event was additionally transmitted via lifestream. The recording, available at https://youtu.be/e7ijajHi4NY, has now been followed by well over 2,000 people.
A highlight of the event was the live broadcast of colleagues from the Daimler locations in São Paulo (Brazil), Tuscaloosa (Alabama/USA), Chennai (India) and Beijing (China) with encouraging testimonies from their prayer circles.
The focal point was a profound lecture by Daniel Hoster, member of the management of a major international bank, entitled ‘OVERCOME CRISES’. In his talk, he addressed not only the current crisis, but also the various crises of a financial, family and personal nature. He also shared how God has carried him through crises. After his talk, Daniel Hoster was able to answer questions from both the guests on site and the livestream participants via the Q&A tool SLIDO.
