We empower our people so that they can unlock their full potential


Our aim

Our aim is to create a fair, inclusive and safe culture which enables our employees to thrive. We provide a workplace where they can continuously grow, openly contribute with their ideas and feel proud of their achievements.

We care for our employees

Offering fair working conditions

We strive to create an engaging working environment and ensure that we treat employees fairly and with respect in accordance with our company values, and that we provide them with equal opportunities and fair remuneration. We want to offer careers instead of jobs and to prepare our employees for the fast-changing world. Therefore we invest in the development of both our employees and business leaders.

Diverse workforce

At dormakaba, we are proud of our diverse workforce of more than 15,000 employees worldwide. We believe that diverse thought and opinion leads to better decision making and better innovation. We value the uniqueness of each of our colleagues and strive to create a culture where everyone can be their authentic selves.

One of our main targets until 2027 is to improve the gender diversity of our leadership pipeline and increase the share of women in managerial positions to 33%. As signatories of the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs), we are committed to implement the seven principles that guide businesses to foster gender equality and women’s empowerment. The principles include topics related to treating all women and men fairly at work and thereby respecting and supporting human rights and nondiscrimination.

Employee safety is a top priority

The physical and mental well-being of employees is a core responsibility of dormakaba. We strive to simultaneously create optimal working conditions for our employees and to ensure operational efficiencies.

71% of our manufacturing sites maintain an occupational health and safety management system. These sites have designated safety personnel, safety committees, regular safety training, and they collaborate with external partners to ensure that health and safety standards are integrated in existing production processes.

Training and Education

We offer various training and development programs for our employees to maintain and improve their skills and the quality of our offering. Over 12,000 employees have access to our Learning Management System, which provides them thousands of eLearning modules in a wide variety of topics.
