Daimler Financial Services is one of world's 25 best employers


Great Place to Work Institute names Daimler Financial Services one of World's Best 25 Multinational Workplaces.

It's a great day for the more than 8,000 employees of Daimler Financial Services worldwide - the company is ranked as one of the world's best 25 employers.

That was confirmed today by the independent Great Place to Work Institute at the award ceremony for the World's Best Multinational Workplaces 2014 in San Francisco. This makes Daimler Financial Services the first company with German origins to win a place in this fiercely contested ranking of the world's most attractive employers.

More than 6,200 companies participated in the survey in 2014. Of these, 2,800 qualified for the competition "World's Best Multinational Companies". 429 companies won a place on one of the national lists of the best employers in individual countries. In order to qualify for the global list, a company must be one of the top employers in at least five countries, it must have at least 5,000 employees, and at least 40 percent of its employees must work outside the company's home country.

Mercedes-Benz Financial Services South Africa (MBFSSA) is proud to be associated with the values and ethics that make its parent company, Daimler Financial Services, a top global employer. The company has been a part of the corporate landscape in South Africa for 17 years, and contributes to the socio-economic growth of its people with a Level 4 Broad-based Black Economic Empowerment (BBBEE) rating.

"Becoming a great place to work is a mindset", says Klaus Entenmann, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler Financial Services. "Our corporate culture is based on a clear set of core values. Every employee has both the opportunity and responsibility to make our company a great place to work. And they do. Our highly motivated employees and our strong culture are reasons why we're able to deliver outstanding service and strong results year for year."

The financial and mobility services division of the Daimler Group is committed to values including trust, individual responsibility, openness to innovation and, last but not least, a love of one's work. The Great Place to Work Institute has been investigating these and similar attitudes at Daimler Financial Services since 2007 by conducting anonymous employee surveys. In the most recent survey, about nine out of ten employees of Daimler Financial Services agreed that their company is a great place to work.

Daimler Financial Services supports sales of Daimler's vehicles by offering financing, leasing and insurance contracts, fleet management, banking services and innovative mobility services. At the end of the third quarter of 2014, well over three million cars and commercial vehicles worth almost ?94 billion were recorded in the company's accounts.

Executive Chairman of MBFSSA, Franz Koller, attributes the longevity of the company in the South African context to the passion of its employees. "With the customer always at the front of our minds, we see themselves as 'game changers', always innovating new ways to make our customers dreams of driving a Mercedes-Benz product a reality. A good example is the Agility product we launched recently, which our customers are loving."
