Diversity & equal opportunity
Knorr-Bremse is strongly committed to the principle of equality of opportunity and treatment. It also forms part of our Group-wide Code of Conduct, which is binding for all employees. As an employer in 27 countries, cultural diversity is one of Knorr-Bremse’s success factors. For this reason we promote understanding and appreciation of other cultures and lifestyles and actively promote the integration of employees from other countries. Examples of this approach include our policy of employing local executives at our sites, offering intercultural training and promoting periods spent living and working abroad.
At Knorr-Bremse, equality of opportunity is taken for granted. We treat our employees equally, regardless of gender; we do not differentiate between male and female employees when it comes to salary scales. The company recruits new employees and executives exclusively on the basis of their qualifications.
Employees with severe disabilities and those with serious health conditions are especially protected and promoted at Knorr-Bremse. A system of special representation for severely disabled persons plays an important role in finding the right workplace for them.
