Reinhard Mohn was born in Gütersloh, Germany, on June 29, 1921. After his release in 1946 by the Americans as a prisoner of war, he returned home to take over management of the familyowned printing and publishing house. He led the business, one of the leading international media enterprises, for over 40 years. The business structure is characterized by the principles of fairness, partnership, and justice. These are expressions of his idea of business culture.
In 1977, Reinhard Mohn founded the Bertelsmann Stiftung, which carries on the tradition of cultural, social, and socio-political involvement while ensuring the enterprise’s continuity. Reinhard Mohn transferred the majority of Bertelsmann AG’s share capital to the foundation in 1993. This act reflects his conviction that wealth and prosperity should also be coupled with a commitment to social engagement.
Reinhard Mohn died on October 3, 2009.
Corporate culture:
The key to business success1

Introduction

In conducting research for a cover story on corporate culture, in the spring of 1996 we carried out an extensive interview with Reinhard Mohn, Chairman of the Bertelsmann Stiftung and longtime Chairman and Chief Executive of Bertelsmann AG. The version of the interview printed in the German business magazine impulse concentrated on those elements that are relevant to mid-sized companies. Throughout the course of our discussion with Mr. Mohn, however, many ideas came up that we feel could make a valuable contribution to current debates on social issues and that are presented here, in this longer version, in all their complexity.

impulse: It appears to be important, at least to some extent, to rescue the concept of corporate culture from the feature pages of our daily newspapers and integrate it into business practice. Corporate culture has oftentimes been more about words than deeds. So how can the concept of corporate culture be implemented in everyday practice?
