Rheinmetall employees identify with a distinctive corporate culture that focuses on trust, professional performance, initiative, self-responsibility, shared values and mutual understanding, and work together in partnership across functional, divisional and national boundaries.
By signing the principles of social responsibility in October 2018, the parties stress the importance of human and cultural diversity for working together, an inclusive and respectful corporate culture and tolerance in dealing with each other. The global framework agreement contains regulations governing compliance with international human rights, fair working conditions and the rights of employee representatives. The contents of the agreement were negotiated with the European Works Council. Representatives of IG Metall and the international trade union confederation IndustriALL Global Union were provided support through accompanying consultancy and coordination processes.
