      OUR BASICS Live

      Functioning communities are based on shared values. In the case of Continental, these are: Trust, Passion To Win, Freedom To Act and For One Another. But are they also being lived out in everyday practice? 

      Our BASICS are the basis for our success as a company. They describe our vision, our mission, our four values and the behavior we desire to cultivate. In short, they define what Continental stands for, what drives us forward and how we want to work together. 

      OUR BASICS Live is an important tool for improving our corporate culture and for cooperation within the company. Since as early 2004 we have been surveying our employees on a regular basis to ascertain their experiences of their direct working environment; what they value about their work, working conditions, the company and its culture; and where there is still room for improvement. Participation is voluntary and anonymous. In previous years, we invited all employees around the world to take part every two to three years. Since 2017, the survey has been carried out annually with a representative sample of the workforce. This enables us to identify potential improvements faster and implement changes more quickly.

      In the employee survey carried out in 2019, 86% of respondents indicated that they fully support our corporate values – Trust, Passion To Win, Freedom To Act and For One Another.
