Responding to relevant issues
The specific nature of the core business of D’Ieteren Auto led the company to respond to two major social issues:
- promote sustainable mobility;
- contribute toward a motivating working environment.
Social responsibility is a factor for long-term success for D’Ieteren Auto; it is legitimate that this sense of responsibility is one of the values that its employees are encouraged to live on a daily basis. Consequently, the third axis on which the company is committed is:
- conduct its business ethically and responsibly.
Promoting a fluid, safe and environmentally friendly mobility
It is D’Ieteren Auto’s symbol of commitment, which is at the heart of its business. To achieve this, the company takes its range of products and services and adapts them to changing customer behaviour. The customers expect to be listened to and advised allowing an evolution in their mobility. D’Ieteren Auto wants to be their partner of choice in this process.
Using and developing talents
Talent development is an important goal for D’Ieteren Auto because it helps motivating and mobilising its staff and strengthens the company’s ability to recruit and retain employees of different backgrounds. This is even more strategic since some automotive trades, technical and specialised, are difficult to fill, mainly due to a disparagement of manual labour and technical studies, or a mismatch between the classic training school and business needs.
Conducting our business in an ethical and responsible manner
The service activities of D’Ieteren Auto mean responsibility toward its customers and numerous partners that the company wants to take in an exemplary manner. It relates to the reputation and the trust it generates.
