An inspiring and collaborative working culture fosters innovation

KONE believes that innovations are born when a working culture is open and engaging, and when the contribution of each individual is valued. This idea is embedded into our aim of making KONE a great place to work, with motivated employees that aspire to deliver great results. It is also embraced in our approach to leadership. KONE leaders are expected to inspire and empower their people to find innovative solutions and perform at their best. 

One of the four core values that guide our personnel in pursuing our strategy is that of winning together. This means that in addition to encouraging participation, we promote the sharing of information and ideas. We seek to develop a culture of working together where co-workers trust and respect each other and good performance is recognized.

At the end of 2013, KONE had over 43,000 employees in more than 50 countries around the world. We aim to provide every employee with fair treatment, equal opportunities, and a safe working environment, and to make KONE a great place to work.
