We are thyssenkrupp, around 155,000 people with thousands of different lifestyles and cultures. But one thing unites us all: We are a team. We work together, learn from each other, and grow together. We are fair. We respect each other and communicate openly. We do what we say and say what we do. This value structure unites us and makes us successful.
Our mission statement
“We always openly encourage our employees to come to us if there are problems. That’s important so that we can continuously improve. We put our faith in openness, mutual appreciation, and respect.”
Dr. Heinrich Hiesinger, Chief Executive Officer
Our mission statement is our basic law. We developed it together to describe how we engage with customers, colleagues, investors, and society in general. We’re proud that this is reflected in our commitment.
It’s only a culture if our employees can feel it. So we ask them.

A question of mindset
To us compliance means more than just obeying rules and regulations. Compliance is a question of mindset: Reliability, honesty, credibility, and integrity are part of our DNA. We would rather sacrifice a contract than win it by breaking the law.
