Onboarding process

Your journey in one of the world’s largest companies starts when you sign your contract. From the minute you join #GENERATIONTK, we’ll provide support to help you thrive. That includes a permanent contact person in your team available to answer any questions or personal concerns you may have. Young talent and newcomers alike are assigned mentors. Job rotations give specialist employees the chance to discover new fields and explore their potential. We provide new team members all the materials needed for their new role. We also help them become familiar with any new colleagues and projects they are introduced to which makes networking within the company a breeze.


You decide when and where you work in conjunction with your manager. Our flexitime system enables you to adapt your working hours to your needs. Remote-work arrangements are available as well. In #GENERATIONTK, we value work-life balance and celebrate individual preference. And we’ll never make you choose between work, attending lectures, or living your life to the fullest.

Training activities

Standing still means going backwards. That’s why we continually provide members of #GENERATIONTK with training activities designed to foster their personal and professional development.

We believe deeply in the value of individual growth and accompany our employees on their journey with goal-setting and feedback meetings: a space to discuss professional goals, measure progress, and ensure they have all the support and resources they need to succeed.


Innovation happens when people break out of established patterns and step out of their comfort zones. That's why new ideas are always welcome in our teams. Flat hierarchies promote an open and honest exchange of ideas.  #GENERATIONTK is deeply committed to promoting a culture of collegiality, openness, and tolerance. We treat each other with respect, recognition, and appreciation.


At thyssenkrupp, we believe that our differences make us stronger. Everyone is welcome to apply  regardless of their gender, nationality, origin, religion and ideology, disability, age, sexual orientation, or identity.

Our work teams are diverse and international. Thyssenkrupp stands by all of its workers, categorically rejects discrimination, supports the colleagues active in our Pride networks, and is deeply committed   to inclusiveness and to providing opportunities for our team members with disabilities.

Thyssenkrupp recognises that diversity is a source of strength which drives innovation forward. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to realise their full human potential and create a better tomorrow for us all.

Culture of feedback

#GENERATIONTK fosters a culture of open feedback. That starts by looking in the mirror: we’re always ready to listen and learn, preferably through a direct and frank exchange of ideas. Feedback can also be given online and thyssenkrupp encourages everyone to use review portals such as Glassdoor.

We appreciate honest feedback from our applicants and employees because it allows us to evaluate how thyssenkrupp is perceived and enables us to make improvements accordingly.

Ever-changing market requirements, disruptive technologies, digital transformation: the business environment is permanently in flux. That requires innovative employees who are up to the challenge, which is why we’re committed to systematically developing the professional, methodological, and personal skills of our young talent and managers.

Health and wellness programmes

Do you like to exercise after work? Whether it’s a discount on your gym membership or your favourite classes, we support our employee’s health and wellness through a variety of programmes. We know how important physical fitness is to maintaining a healthy work-life balance.


Thyssenkrupp is currently undergoing what might be the biggest transformation in the company’s long and storied history. We are developing innovative and sustainable solutions for the future – for this generation and the next – and have plenty of fascinating topics and extremely exciting projects you can participate in to help us get there.

Being handed this responsibility right from the very beginning made my start as an Expert Development Services in Personnel Development really exciting. It showed me that this is a place where I’ll be encouraged to grow personally and – just as importantly – to actively participate in shaping the future of thyssenkrupp.
