“Shared values create the conditions for our brands to work in an aligned and coordinated way. By joining forces, we can focus even more on putting our customers first.”Fiora Cheng Gårdemyr, Head of Scale up and Strategic Partnerships, Scania
The TRATON GROUP is convinced that a company’s culture is key to its commercial success. And the foundation of this culture is created by corporate values that are shared by all employees. That is why the TRATON GROUP has introduced five such values: Customer First, Respect, Team Spirit, Responsibility, and Elimination of Waste. These values are dependent on each other and complement the purpose that TRATON has defined for itself: Transforming Transportation Together. For a sustainable world.
The TRATON GROUP has stepped up collaboration between its brands in order to successfully implement its strategy and realize common projects. This means that people from different companies and cultures have to work together. A common compass of values helps guide their thoughts and actions in the same direction so that they can better achieve TRATON’s goals.
Actively putting the values into practice on a day-to-day basis takes time, and a mix of cross-brand and own-brand activities will help the TRATON brands to adopt and embrace these values together. What’s crucial first and foremost is that all employees understand the new values and can think about how they themselves might put them into practice and thus contribute to that TRATON Spirit that the Group is striving to create. To this end, the Company is planning Group-wide internal workshops to encourage the teams to continuously discuss the values and how they affect their way of working. Only when we truly embrace our corporate values can we strengthen the shared spirit of trust and collaboration — the TRATON Spirit.
