BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT – DESCRIBING A COMPANY

Środowisko, czy też otoczenie, biznesowe wpływa na warunki organizacji i jej możliwości rozwoju. Skupimy się na opisie firmy i poznaniu jej od środka.

Look at the short description of the Mercedes-Benz company

 

Mercedes-Benz is a German luxury and commercial vehicle automotive brand established in 1926. The company is headquartered in Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. The brand’s origins lie in Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft’s 1901 Mercedes and Carl Benz’s 1886 Benz Patent-Motorwagen, which is widely regarded as the first internal combustion engine in a self-propelled automobile. The slogan for the brand is „the best or nothing.” Today they are delivering their products worldwide. From November 2019 onwards, Mercedes-Benz-badged heavy commercial vehicles (trucks and buses) are managed by Daimler Truck, a former part of the Mercedes-Benz Group that turned into an independent company in late 2021. In 2018, Mercedes-Benz was the largest brand of premium vehicles in the world, having sold 2.31 million passenger cars. The number of employees working for the company has reached 173 thousand in 2021. What companies does Mercedes-Benz own? A lot! Daimler AG is the parent company of Mercedes-Benz and besides that, they own Fuso, Western Star, Smart, Freightliner, Bharat Benz, Setra, and Thomas Built. But what about the Mercedes-Benz itself? Here are the statistics on their shareholders: Institutional investors (52.7%) Private shareholders (22.8%) Tenaciou3 Prospect Investment Limited (Li Shufu) (9.7%) Kuwait Investment Authority (6.8%) BAIC Group (9.98%). Thus, the brand is not owned by one person.

Dzisiaj, środowisko pracy nabiera coraz większego znaczenia. Pracodawcy starają się, aby spędzanie czasu w firmie było lepsze,  i przyczyniało się do lepszego samopoczucia. Nie ma innej drogi, kiedy, według Instytutu Gallupa, ponad 44% pracowników w Europie rozważa zmianę pracy. Przy wyborze miejsca pracy, warto poznać firmę od wewnątrz, gdyż to w jej środku leży sukces i nasza przyszła satysfakcja zawodowa.
