Our culture

We are passionate about safety, quality, sustainability and the KONE values, which together form a strong foundation for our company culture. Our unique and strong culture has always supported us in successfully renewing our business according to the changing environment.

Our culture is created by each one of us, by every action we take, every day, all around the world. It is about the things we do that put a smile on our customers’ and colleagues’ faces, the acts that inspire people around us and make the world a better place. It is embedded in the ways we collaborate, the way we see the world and our impact on it, and the way we bring our core principles and values to life.
