We build on diversity!

As a globally active company, STRABAG’s 79,000 employees represent more than 139 nations from all generations, various religions and different sexual orientations. We are proud of this diversity and want to support our employees in their development as best as we can. STRABAG stands for equal opportunities: everyone, regardless of their gender or gender identity, age, origin, sexual orientation, religion or beliefs, is given the same opportunities and the same career prospects. Because we believe that diverse teams are the best foundation for building a successful future with innovative and climate-friendly solutions.

  • The more diverse our employees are in terms of gender, age, origin or professional background, the more diverse their perspectives and their innovative approaches to solving the most pressing challenges facing our industry.

6-0-100: Our diversity targets

Our goal is clear: as one of the world’s leading construction technology companies, we want to be an attractive employer for all. We have set ourselves clear and measurable targets to bring us closer to this goal and to promote equality, diversity and inclusion at STRABAG.

Dimensions of diversity

STRABAG supports gender equality, generational diversity and ethnic diversity. Many steps have already been taken, and many more will follow.

Gender equality

Generational diversity

Ethnic diversity

  • In our vision for the future, equality, diversity and inclusion are firmly anchored in everyone’s thinking, are an integral component of our structures and concepts, and are automatically included in our decisions and actions. Gender diversity and ethnic diversity should also be more strongly reflected in leadership positions.

Zero tolerance for discrimination

With our ombudsperson programme and the STRABAG whistleblower platform, we have effective mechanisms in place for reporting cases of discrimination. It is only when such violations are reported to us that we as an organisation can learn from them and implement the necessary corrective measures.

Ombudsperson

All of our ombudspersons will treat your concerns confidentially and in accordance with the principle of impartiality. The ombudspersons are your first point of contact for any unresolved legal matters regarding your employment or cases of discrimination of any kind, including incorrect pay, sexual harassment or bullying. The ombudsperson coordinator and the regional ombudspersons are also available as trusted advisors for work-related personal matters such as burnout or addiction.

In all their interactions, the ombudspersons always exercise absolute discretion and maintain an impartial attitude. Our ombudspersons see themselves as mediators between interests, pointing out possible courses of action and drawing attention to the consequences of certain behaviour.

STRABAG whistleblower platform:

Reports of discrimination of any kind can be submitted to the STRABAG whistleblower platform. The platform allows for the secure and – if desired – anonymous reporting of (suspected) legal offences and violations of internal company regulations by STRABAG and/or its employees, including cases of discrimination.
