At Bystronic, we not only aspire to be the best choice for our customers, but also for our employees. We are aware that the success of our products and services is based on people with ideas, enthusiasm, and know-how.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

GRI 3-3GRI 405-1

At Bystronic we are passionate about creating an impact for a sustainable future with sheet metal and beyond. For us, diversity, equity and inclusion take top priority as we reshape our company and industry.

We believe that Bystronic’s impact is limitless when our people are encouraged to bring their full, authentic selves to work every day. By sharing their ideas and passion, they enrich our culture, bring value to our teams and clients, strengthen our communities, and drive the company’s success.

We flourish when we contribute to our customers’ long-term success. We do this by providing innovative solutions, delivering on promises, and executing our strategy. A diverse workforce helps us to develop more innovative and creative ideas, promotes productivity, and encourages more comprehensive thinking.
At Bystronic, we live an open and inclusive culture that nurtures a strong sense of belonging and community. We want our employees to feel empowered and recognize that their contributions make a difference.

The sheet metal industry has been male-dominated for decades, and women are underrepresented both in leadership roles and frontline positions. To counteract this, we are committed to implementing:

  • An increase of women in management positions to 25% by 2030
  • A policy that incentivizes employee diversity. For example, by making diversity a factor of the performance-related remuneration of executive staff.

The protection of the health and safety of our employees is of utmost importance. All new employees are informed about potential risks at their workplace, and all workers are trained in accordance with local standards and laws. We carry out regular workplace risk analyses and audits and derive, coordinate, and monitor corrective and preventive measures.

In 2022 we saw significant improvements in our health and safety performance with more than a 30% reduction in injuries.
