Workforce

Due to the anticipated business development, production volumes will continue rising in 2014. At the same time, we will significantly increase our efficiency and thus also productivity as a result of the programs we are carrying out in all divisions. Against this backdrop, we assume that we will be able to achieve our ambitious growth targets with a largely stable workforce. In the context of expanding our production network, new jobs will tend to be created primarily in North America and Asia. Workforce growth is likely to take place also at our joint ventures in China and Russia, whose employees are not included in the figures for the Daimler Group.
