At car2go, our values drive us. Not only do they define our workplace culture, but they also drive us to work hard and aspire for more in everyday life.
When the executive leadership team at car2go NA got together for their 2015 major annual meeting, a main focus was company culture.
Over the last few years, car2go has honed its culture into what it is today (just see our previous blog post!).
But, the team wanted to come up with a way to explain this to others, and give employees a way to substantiate it. This brought about a few questions: how do we sum our culture up into core values? More importantly, what should they be?
Through creative brainstorming, some honest reflection, and lots of laughs, they came up with our six corporate values we abide by today.
Our values drive us.
The best work happens when smart people rally around a common purpose – at car2go, we’re shaping the future of mobility, and we do that as a team.
We help each other out. We don’t take ourselves too seriously. We know that the best ideas can come from anywhere. And we believe great cultures start with great people who trust one another to do great work.
That’s why our car2go employees choose to work here. Our values aren’t just words – they inspire how we act, how we treat each other, and what we bring to work each day. They fuel and define the culture at car2go.
To show their importance, we created posters for each of these values by letting our own employees act out their interpretation of them in a photoshoot!
These posters are now hung up around every office in North America, and are the values utilized in employee engagement programs such as YouEarnedIt.
We are all very proud to have each and every one of them!
