Reimagining the vehicles of tomorrow takes the best minds of today. Our workforce is united by our mission to build a future with zero collisions and zero emissions and where vehicles are connected to the world around them in innovative ways. To help our high-performing team succeed, we foster a culture that values diverse backgrounds, prioritizes safety and recognizes that talent development is a never-ending process. Investing in our people at every stage of their careers, and in the communities where they live and work, isn’t just the right thing to do — it’s good business.
“Our goal of enabling the future of mobility starts with a team that performs at a high level. In addition to prioritizing employee health and safety, we look for ways to provide our people with unique opportunities, beginning with talent acquisition and continuing through every stage of employee advancement. We are committed to ensuring equal access to opportunities because we know that diverse perspectives make our company stronger.”

Achieved outstanding safety performance, thanks in part to a 98% engagement rate with our “safety look-across” process, which was used 111 times in 2021 to proactively identify safety practices that can be applied to multiple locations. Every week, this systematic process requires each site’s Environmental, Health & Safety director to verify whether any identified safety improvements could be used at their site. For example, a manufacturing site in China improved the safety of one of its machines, and 32 other sites adopted the practice across 200 pieces of equipment.
