Success through diversity

At Bosch, the far-reaching experience and cultural diversity of the company's associates are valued as a source of creativity and innovation.

Bosch employs more than 300,000 associates representing 200 different cultures at 300 locations in around 150 countries. As many as 30,000 researchers and developers are spread throughout 50 countries. Around 90 percent of the research teams are international in character. That means good cooperation is essential, particularly as most of it is organized virtually. Even at individual locations such as the Engineering Center in Abstatt near Heilbronn, it’s not unusual for the workforce to include people from 30 different nationalities.

Bosch created the “House of Orientation” to provide common ground for all associates, ensure each and every one of them feels at home within the company, and enable them to unlock his or her full potential. It also represents the Bosch vision and values. In this respect, these shared fundamental values are as important to the company as the diversity to which Bosch has committed itself in its value code and by signing the German Federal Government’s Charter of Diversity. For Bosch, the regional and cultural origins of its associates, coupled with their individual qualities, are the essential building blocks of worldwide success.
