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.
The “Christians at Daimler” network comprises around 1,200 members. There are around 40 Daimler prayer groups at different locations, to which Christians of different denominations and congregations regularly meet outside their working hours in order to pray for the 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 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 16, 2019, the 14th Daimler Christian Meeting (DCM) took place in Weinstadt-Beutelsbach. The motto of the event was ‘Image your belief’. 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 the former CEO Dr. Dieter Zetsche.
As every year, all Daimler employees, including former Daimler employees and contractors, who are interested in topics of Christian faith and committed to Christian values in their working lives, were invited. In addition to Daimler members, around 55 employees from competitor and supplier companies attended the meeting. They participated a meeting of the ‘Christians in the Automotive Industry (CAI)’ which took place just before the Daimler Christian Meeting at the same location.
