At Daimler Truck North America, each person is essential to the success of the business. We continuously aim to create an environment of “PRIDE” which encourages and supports our shared values. We work to ensure these values are consistent throughout our organization
Pride: Our pioneering spirit is driven by our power to innovate and our openness to change. We encourage creativity and “out of the box” thinking to develop novel solutions and possibilities. Whatever we do, we do with passion.
Respect: We are appreciative and empathetic toward our colleagues, customers, suppliers and external partners. We individually and collectively trust each other, acting as a team and welcoming diversity.
Integrity: Our behavior is based on honesty, fairness and trustworthiness. We hold ourselves to the highest ethical standards and adhere to these standards regardless of the circumstances. We are committed to the ideals of sustainability, which represents profitable growth for the company and our responsibilities to society and the environment.
Discipline: We focus on results, always looking for solutions with the determination and tenacity to succeed. We actively share best practices from all parts of the company and constantly seek opportunities to improve our performance.
We at Daimler Trucks North America believe that our innovative designs, superior quality, and exceptional customer value are a direct result of our diverse teams who bring their best to work every day. Through a foundation of passion, respect, integrity and discipline, our commitment to having an inclusive culture, respectful of diversity in its many forms, is integrated throughout our business.
Daimler Truck North America (DTNA) is keenly aware that corporate America traditionally has been very homogenous, and historically not as reflective of the diversity that exists in our society today. While we are proud of our accomplishments, we also want to honor the promise of an even brighter future, one where all people are truly valued and no group is underrepresented or marginalized. We want to communicate our strong sentiment that racism is never acceptable.
DTNA is the leader in the trucking industry because of the creativity and contributions of thousands of employees who live and work in the communities in which we do business. These employees cannot fulfill their duties and responsibilities if they do not feel safe in their community, home, or place of work. It is important to speak up and condemn any attacks against people of color in our nation and we ask all of our employees and the nation to acknowledge that these are not random, isolated events but instead a reflection of a system and society that must change. Discrimination and violence toward people of color and other marginalized groups in our nation must stop.
The great Nelson Mandela often said that a good head and good heart was a formidable combination. We ask that our DTNA employees work to support change with an open mind and heart by focusing on selfless leadership and caring for all people. We are so much better than this - we must be better than this.
We acknowledge that we all have implicit biases, but that it is our responsibility to overcome these biases, so that we can successfully thrive together. We condemn the recent unjust deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd, and we commit to being part of the solution while we continue to work for those who keep the world moving.
