Supporting One Ford

While we have many types of employees and work arrangements, all of our employees together create a skilled and motivated team aligned around our overall One Ford objectives. Our One Ford plan aligns our efforts toward a common definition of success: having One Team, One Plan and One Goal for an exciting, viable Ford that delivers profitable growth for all. One Ford also provides consistent goals and expectations for employees – whether they work in the U.S., China or one of our other global locations – with a clear focus on the skills and behaviors we must demonstrate to accomplish our goals. All members of our global team are held accountable for incorporating One Ford into their daily work.

We have integrated One Ford into our people processes to support employee development and drive accountability for moving the company forward while demonstrating expected behaviors that are fundamental to the success of One Ford:

  • F: Foster Functional and Technical Excellence
  • O: Own Working Together
  • R: Role Model Ford Values
  • D: Deliver Results

Over the last few years, implementing the One Ford plan has meant that we have focused our people strategies on four key goals: creating a great place to work; developing a capable and effective work force; aligning our organizational structure with our global business footprint; and providing the “people-related” processes to support our work force. That One Ford approach was extended into our Go Further campaign, which embodies our commitment to our customers. One Ford is our road map and plan, while Go Further is the promise behind our efforts.
