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.
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 lift 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.
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 lift company, and we always have families at heart.
Changing outdated assumptions can be a major challenge when promoting diversity in the workplace.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.
