BMW Group Diversity: We welcome everyone



It’s the diverse input of our employees from over 140 countries that makes us what we are: a Bavarian automotive brand that’s at home all over the world. To us, diversity is one of the most important criteria for success. As diverse as are our customers, suppliers and investors, so too are our teams who manage, every day, to bring a smile to our customers’ faces. It’s the diversity of our teams that enables us to better understand the different requirements of our stakeholders from all over the world. Because it’s the right mix that allows us to better reflect and make smarter decisions. We know: if we want to set standards in the development of innovative technologies, we need to set standards with our corporate culture as well. Exactly here, our diversity is our potential, and the cornerstone of our company's success, that will ensure our continued competitiveness and innovative strength.

BMW Group Diversity: Employees at their workplace

Women and men.

To us, equal opportunities for men and women are not an empty promise, but a reality we live by – every day and everywhere. Because we know that it’s the varied and mutually complementary perspectives and approaches of each individual that make us strong enough to face our challenges.

The skills of our female colleagues are an essential element to the success of the BMW Group. Not only do we appreciate their expertise and dedication - but also their communicative skills which prove invaluable in creating a better togetherness

Young to old.

The average number of years an employee works for the BMW Group is increasing. This is due to an earlier entry into the company, as well as a later exit, e.g. due to rising retirement ages. In order to benefit from the strengths and experiences of employees of different ages, we’ve introduced a variety of programmes for flexible and mobile working.

People with and without disabilities.

By creating optimal, barrier-free working conditions we ensure that all of our colleagues, whether they have a disability or not, feel comfortable and empowered to shape creative processes from a variety of different perspectives. Because we know that different perspectives play an essential role in us achieving great things together, every day. We use innovative digitalisation and industry 4.0 solutions to make work easier, in particular for our colleagues with disabilities. We also get involved outside of our company e.g. through cooperations with programmes for the disabled.
