innovation and sustainability are the main pillars of our business – and we live this way beyond our r&d and sustainability departments. every one of our more than 15,600 colleagues has the opportunity to be an innovator within the scope of their daily work. we are courageously pushing the boundaries of what is possible to live up to our promise of making the world a brighter place. driven by this commitment, we all contribute to solutions for society’s biggest challenges. we tackle these challenges with our innovative materials and solutions and by constantly improving our products and processes. profiting society while driving towards zero impact on the planet is our vision for sustainability. to be innovative and sustainable at the same time, we have to offer our employees an inspiring work environment and a culture of professional development and personal growth. as a company, we can only advance if we enable our people to do so.
we focus on enabling and motivating them to develop their full potential. we aim to achieve this not only by creating a pleasant work environment and offering good work conditions, but also by operating with flexible structures, ensuring personal development and growth as well as recognizing and compensating in a transparent and competitive way.
we provide our employees with principles and guidance on how to push boundaries and meet our purpose and values in their specific function.
diversity at covestro
diversity and inclusion are integral parts of covestro’s global talent management strategy. we want to embrace personal characteristics, rediscover potentials, challenge existing preconceptions and engage in dialogue with all of our colleagues.
we see and leverage diversity as our strength. it is precisely because of our differences in terms of age, gender, origin, beliefs, orientations, and (dis-)abilities, that each one of us can make a unique contribution to our company’s success. this holds true for all the regions in which we act and for all levels of hierarchy.
