Hamilton spray-painting a graffiti mural that was both street art and billboard. Furthermore, at public events like the annual Formula Student at the Hockenheimring, we tell candidates about our very special AMG spirit. But we also do everything we can in the workplace so that our employees at Mercedes-AMG feel like they’ve found their place, and they feel good about themselves and valued. Because satisfied employees are still the best advertisement for Mercedes-AMG as an employer. Do you have an example for us? Any number of them. For example, our flexible working hours, an excellent canteen, our sport and health offerings, and naturally the many opportunities for development we offer. In addition, we are also committed to the compatibility of family and career. We cooperate, for instance, with two children’s daycare centers near our headquarters in Affalterbach, so we can provide 16 daycare places very close to our company exclusively for AMG employees. Our parent/child office with a quiet room has also been very well received: Parents who have no childcare opportunities at short notice can simply take their children to work with them. Is it all worthwhile? Do your employees and colleagues identify particularly strongly with the AMG brand? When you observe, say, how many employees come to work in AMG team attire entirely as a matter of course, even though that’s not required, you quickly get a sense of the high level of identification and belonging. I think that we at AMG are creating a very special culture. We possess a unique team spirit that flows out of flat hierarchies, rapid decision-making channels and broad areas of responsibility with an unbelievably high degree of dynamism — and we have our origins in racing to thank for that. And when, as a logical extension of that, our management team recently introduced a voluntary culture in which people are allowed to address one another informally, it was accepted positively and quickly. Since then we’ve even started calling our CEO Tobias (Moers) by his first name. Last question: Why should a lot of people who are starting, switching or advancing their careers make their way here to Affalterbach? Because Mercedes-AMG is a very attractive employer that asks a lot of its employees but gives back at least as much in the form of freedom, autonomy, development opportunities and benefits. We especially look for engineers with professional experience and an affinity for racing. Yet anyone else who relishes a challenge should try their luck with us. And maybe I’ll even see them soon on their own personal “day one”. 133
