Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

The diversity of our multicultural and highly skilled workforce and its wide range of talents and experience are key to our company’s success. We embrace the value of diversity and the positive impact it has on a team’s creativity and innovative ability. In support of this and other initiatives, we are committed to progressively increasing the number of women in senior leadership positions.

Our success as a market and innovation leader in the elevator and escalator industry is based to a large extent on the commitment and expertise of our employees. We promote both their professional and personal development through a wide range of training and development courses.

  • We have a strong corporate and employer brand concept, allowing employees and candidates to easily identify with our company and its aims and values.
  • We strive to create a workplace where current and future generations enjoy working and building their careers.

Fairness & Respect

In 2021, TK Elevator signed a Global Framework Agreement (GFA) with the Group Works Council and the global trade union IndustriALL. This agreement is key to safeguarding human and employee rights globally. It protects the interests of workers across all company operations and outlines standards for trade union rights, as well as health, safety and environmental practices, and quality of work principles.

Health & Safety

Keeping people safe is a core value for us that may never be compromised. Basically, it is our license to operate and do business. Any accident can be devastating – not only to the injured persons, but also to their families, friends, and colleagues. It is therefore imperative for us to consistently and uncompromisingly ensure the health and safety of our employees and contractors.

  • 60% of our employees work at sites that are certified according to ISO 45001 and/or OSHAS 18001.​
  • We co-founded the Global Elevator Safety Forum for pursuing a safe and fatality-free industry.​
  • We have developed our 10 Safety Rules which are applicable to employees and subcontractors around the world. Download them here.
