Corporate Culture Matters
Across our dynamic industry and global operating environment, one thing remains constant at Dana — our commitment to integrity and ethical business practices. We have earned our customers’ trust by delivering outstanding service and an unwavering commitment to ethics in all that we do, person to person.
For more than 115 years, we have been working together to build solutions that support vehicle and engine manufacturers around the world.
As we conduct business in more than 140 countries, each employee is obligated to act with the highest degree of integrity and in full compliance with the law. Continuing to drive our business in an ethical manner will help to ensure the long-term success for our people, our customers, our communities, and our shareholders.
We believe that an effective corporate governance culture starts with the tone at the top, reinforcing the message that Dana conducts business in a legal, ethical, and responsible manner with a respect for human rights.
"We have a shared commitment to protect our reputation for not only delivering high-tech, high-quality products, but also conducting business honestly and with integrity."
At Dana, business conduct and ethics are addressed through various programs to maintain a culture where each of us feels comfortable asking questions, speaking up, and working toward solutions. These processes include reporting, investigation and remediation, certification and audit, and continuous training and education.
Upon joining Dana, salaried employees undertake a series of mandatory new hire business conduct modules that include promoting honesty, integrity, mutual respect, and compliance with all of our policies.
We believe in ongoing training and education to ensure that employees take an active role to understand the policies affecting their job and well-being applicable at their location. In 2020, these additional mandatory trainings for all employees addressed appropriate workplace behavior and the responsible use of social media.
Ethics and compliance are also regularly integrated into other training initiatives. This includes Dana’s "Leadership Foundations" program in which the next generation of Dana leadership and leaders new to Dana engage in thought-provoking exercises on topics critical to leading with integrity.
