      Our Values

      People who motivate – in a culture that inspires

      At Continental, all employees share four fundamental corporate values. They form the roots of our corporate culture: Trust, Passion To Win, Freedom To Act and For One Another. We are convinced that only in an environment shaped by those values can essential and pioneering services, solutions and input be created.

      Continental encourages all employees. To do so, we maintain a culture of trust and provide the freedom to develop personal responsibility. At Continental, the working climate is characterized by mutual respect. Every individual contribution counts. We share these through our global network and work together to refine them. We pick up on trends and market changes, make use of them more quickly than others, and come up with better (i.e. more effective) solutions for our customers more quickly.

      Trust: we earn the trust we give.

      Trust is the basis for everything we do and the prerequisite for our success. We keep our promises. To all our employees and all stakeholders in Continental (such as customers, employees, investors, business partners, politicians and society). We are aware that trust is hard to gain and can be easily destroyed. That is why we prove at all times that the trust placed in us is worth it.

       

      In 2016, we provided flexible working conditions for more than 90 percent of our employees worldwide. This includes mobile working, part-time and flexi-time hours, as well as sabbaticals.

      Passion To Win: we have the passion to win.

      Competition is our world; top performance is our goal. For we want to create value on a permanent basis. “Quality First” is a core corporate value at Continental: Our products and services always meet the highest quality standards. We overcome obstacles and boundaries. And we never let up in any of these endeavors.

       

      Every year, Continental shares its success with its employees worldwide – a total of €150 million for the fiscal year 2018.

      Freedom To Act: we grow with freedom and its responsibility.

      We grant our employees the greatest possible freedom from the outset. At every level, we encourage their willingness to organize and to take responsibility for their work themselves. Through “Balance of Cooperation” – another core initiative – we create the right amount of centralized and decentralized responsibility.

      For One Another: we attain top value with a spirit for one another.

      We believe the best teams work together to utilize each other’s strengths, diverse skills and experiences as a source of inspiration and creativity every day.
