Whether it's cruise chauffeur or highway pilot: we are working at full speed on finding new technological solutions to make roads safer around the world. Do you want to know how the Continental team is inspired and inspiring? Let our colleagues tell you how they join forces to shape the future of mobility, the future of our company but also their own career journey:
Our heart beats for innovation. Once again, our contribution to a smart and sustainable mobility of the future has been recognized. The Automotive Innovations Award is presented every year by the Center of Automotive Management, and is based on the scientific evaluation of our industry’s most innovative achievements. Out of 300 innovations, our solutions made it to the top of the ranking: Our Turn Assist System, designed to make trucks safer and save lives, impressed the expert jury and wins the “Automated Driving” category, while our MultiViu Compact display and ContiSeal technology placed second in their respective categories. We would like to thank our great employees behind these technologies! This award is your award!
At Continental, we empower employees to shape the future of mobility, to be an active part of the modern working world and transforming the automotive industry. Thus, we offer access to trainings around Artificial Intelligence (AI) and encourage every employee to invest some of their time in becoming familiar with AI and develop new skills. How can our colleagues master the digital transformation and become AI talents? Our “AI Talent Initiative” and “Software Academy” programs are part of this journey. Learn more:
Diversity is a catalyst for our innovative power. Only the diverse perspectives, characteristics, experiences and cultures of our employees make Continental innovative and a great place to work. For us, an open working environment - regardless of personal differences such as sexual orientation, gender identity or origin - is a matter of course. #ForOneAnother

To embed diversity even further into our company culture, to cherish multiple perspectives in our daily work and to embrace the enormous potential that diversity offers in all our projects, we are organizing a new series of LGBT*IQ awareness sessions (thanks PROUT AT WORK-Foundation for the great support!). The virtual workshops are open to all our employees and two events have already taken place. Over 650 colleagues shed a light on today’s situation of LGBT*IQ people at work, consequently reflecting on unconscious bias and stigma. Participants were equipped with a set of easy steps how everyone can contribute to a respectful environment and culture, especially for LGBT*IQ. The session was wrapped up with a question & answer round, where practical situations could be discussed in detail. Two other workshops are planned for the second half of the year. We are already looking forward!
At Continental, we believe that success is always grounded in teamwork. Our CEO, Nikolai Setzer, is our greatest ambassador of collaboration: “Our Passion To Win is only effective if we trust ourselves and others, work For One Another, and have the Freedom To Act.“ As long as we tackle things together we shall always find solution to move forward and continue to shape the future of mobility. #Continental150Years #FeelOurHeartbeat
