Diversity in the workplace is a reality at Schindler.

We Elevate... Diversity
Together, the possibilities are endless

Diversity and inclusion are priorities for Schindler. Our workforce includes employees from many backgrounds – different genders, nationalities, sexual orientations, ages, ethnicities, religions, and physical abilities.


Women are encouraged to apply for leadership roles at Schindler.

Gender diversity

At the moment, our priority is improving gender diversity. Engineering is traditionally male-oriented, but this is changing, and we are actively driving that change through targeted hiring, development, and specialized retention initiatives like our Women in Leadership program.

But our journey doesn’t stop with women. As a leading elevator service company, we aim to create an inclusive work environment where all employees, irrespective of their background, can access opportunities to achieve their full potential.

Schindler’s family-friendly policies include flex hours and part-time work.

Flexible working environment

Working parents at Schindler benefit from a supportive company with progressive policies for home office work and flexible hours. Part-time work arrangements are another possibility to help ease the transition after family leave. Schindler is a family-owned elevator company, and we always have families at heart.

Diversity training in the workplace.

Overcoming bias

Changing outdated assumptions can be a major challenge when promoting diversity in the workplace. At Schindler we offer specialized training to enlighten our teams on the strategic value of having different perspectives gathered around the table.
