What do integrity, compliance and corporate culture mean to ŠKODA?
Essentially it is about being open, honest, and trustworthy, and dealing with others on eye-level.
It´s about how we think, act, our attitude and behavior. All of this is wrapped up in the Together4integrity programme initiated by the Volkswagen Group. The aim is for the Group and its marques to have programs supporting a high degree of integrity and compliance, with an accent on corporate culture and value-oriented foundations. These programs clearly spell out high standards of conduct and we are keen to compete with them. Acting in line with the statutes will guarantee our reputation, economic prosperity and, not least, jobs. This is precisely why this area is so important to us.
What are you looking forward to most this year?
I already mentioned our product campaign. This year we lay the foundation to strengthen our foundations so that ŠKODA is even more stably and firmly anchored in the world by building up new sales positions and expanding the customer base through new products and services.
Looking further into the future, the transformation process is set to pick up this year. It’s challenging, all-encompassing and nerve-wracking for everyone involved. Yet all this has unexpectedly brought us a lot of pleasure because it is a unique opportunity for us to actively and jointly shape the future of our industry. And that’s something I’m very happy about.
