Managing Diversity

Sika’s goal is to create a respectful working environment in which discrimination of any kind is not tolerated by any means. Innovation, performance and mutual respect determine the way we work together. Everyone in our corporation contributes to the success of the whole Group. Sika knows about the advantages of a multifaceted workforce, and thus promotes the integration of individuals from manifold walks of life.


Cross Culture

Sika is a global employer and in this highly competitive environment we depend on broad minded and experienced employees as a key success factor. In fact, international work experience becomes more and more a requirement to reach management positions. Sika will foster its most qualified talents by offering such experiences as well as use skilled people to bring their knowledge to other parts of the world in order to improve our business and to achieve our objectives.

Good Corporate Citizen

Sika sites throughout the world are embedded in the local community. Sika business is directed to bring long-term and sustainable success to all stakeholders – economically, ecologically and socially speaking. Management and staff are recruted mainly locally and nationally. In terms of the human ecology of the site and its surrounding area we strive to contribute to the establishment of a strong community and neighborhood. For instance, it is important for us that cohesive human communities are respected as they are valuable and necessary.


Quality through Diversity

The needs, wants, and the languages in which our customers express themselves are diverse. We must understand them if we are to provide our customers with a quality service experience. Enhancing the quality of our product and service offerings begins with managing diversity within Sika. This includes an employee mix as diverse as our customers, an appreciation of different cultural perspectives and beliefs, an ability to accommodate the varying needs and tastes of people from different origins and the need to train management and staff to understand and relate to a complex customer base. Embracing diversity therefore is one of our key topics.
