Schindler keeps communities on the move. The support we give extends beyond the technology we install and maintain. We contribute to society by acting as a good corporate citizen. Through vocational education and training for young people, employee volunteering, and donations to charitable organizations, we deliver value to the communities we work in.

Vocational education and training
We have a long history of sponsoring successful vocational education programs that offer opportunities to learn valuable skills, gain experience and ease the transition to the world of work.
Currently, we run 40 vocational education and training programs globally, covering more than 2,000 students. Our community efforts across the globe support education for employees and their families, improving skills, competencies, and satisfaction at work.
With our training courses, employee development and succession planning, we are not only investing in the future of the company, but also making a contribution to the communities in which we operate. With our vocational education and training programs, we are actively providing young people with key professional skills for the future.

Employee volunteering – supporting our society
We believe that personal growth isn’t limited to the workplace and encourage employees to explore volunteering. By using their time and skills to benefit others, Schindler employees can access other points of view and cultures that enrich their lives both personally and professionally.
In 2018, employees at all levels of the company were involved in community development, from individually organized initiatives to team events and national level partnerships. Current examples are the Mindset program in Southeast Asia and the Habitat for Humanity initiative in the US.
Schindler and its employees make donations to charitable organizations around the world. The goal of such initiatives is simple – we aim to make a positive contribution to society and improve the quality of life in the communities in which we serve.
