Mission: Shaping the future of mobility to make it more safe, smart and sustainable.
Continental Gives Bonus to All Employees Worldwide
“Everyone has worked for the success, so everyone has earned a bonus. That’s why we have been sharing the company’s success for years already, not only with our employees in Germany but with all employees in all 61 countries and markets in which we are active. That is our understanding of For One Another, one of our four core values,” explained Dr. Ariane Reinhart, Continental Executive Board member for Human Relations. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vMA6I
Pioneering achievement: Digitalization and innovation are key elements for us – also in our finance department. Together with Siemens and Commerzbank, we have carried out a test transaction as part of a pilot project to process a money market security between the companies using #blockchain technology.
Sounds like a time saver, doesn’t it? The commercial paper transaction processed in minutes rather than days! The project is a major step toward fully blockchain-based securities trading. Read how: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vMAnV

Our employees are the key to success
Its employees in particular are what make Continental strong. The corporation expects commitment and strength of purpose from its employees. It rewards excellence and creates the working conditions required to enhance and foster quality performance. It promotes devotedness, qualifications, education and training, flexibility and loyalty as a matter of course. A great deal is invested in the workplace in all areas of the corporation. The corporation is committed to providing healthy working conditions and ensuring safety in the workplace. Everyone at Continental enjoys equal opportunity, regardless of age, nationality, gender, religion, race or sexual orientation.
As a driver of innovation, Continental is on the leading edge of technology. This kind of top position can only have a sound basis if the people who stand behind this company have the opportunity to develop their ideas in an environment that inspires and motivates. An environment characterized by competence, cooperation and progress. Worldwide. We call this “corporate spirit”. Deciding factors for this corporate spirit are:
A balanced relationship between professional and personal life not only helps to reduce stress for an individual. It in itself is what greases the wheels for a company’s long-term economic success. Active, fit and motivated employees are the prerequisite for a “healthy”, a better company.
So, the intention of Continental’s activities in this area are by no means altruistic. Everyone benefits from a balance between work and life. It is the basis for creating a classic win-win situation. And, the programs we offer to this end are just as extensive and varied. For example:
A company that does business on a world stage simply must have a multicultural mindset. For Continental, this is more than a basic condition. It is our opportunity to expand entrepreneurial perspectives and in doing so to participate in international markets up close and “from the inside out”.
This is one reason why individuals from all nationalities are welcomed by us, irrespective of their age, gender, origin, sexual orientation or bodily impairment. Decisive is only the applicant’s skills and potential. Equal qualifications are required from all. A selection is made based on an objective qualitative evaluation only.
