Together4Integrity will make progress measurable and reveal deficits, said Hiltrud D. Werner, Board Member for Integrity and Legal Affairs, at a press conference. Chief Human Resources Officer Gunnar Kilian announced that the program would involve every employee, saying "We have systematically planned the roll-out in all major units. We will make sure that all employees receive the message." Recently, CEO Herbert Diess has already stressed the key importance of cultural transformation.
Together4Integrity is based on the principles of the international Ethics & Compliance Initiative (ECI), which has 450 member companies from various industries. These basic principles were developed by an expert commission, including the current monitor, Larry D. Thompson.
