The spirit of Schaeffler - Our Culture

At Schaeffler we help inspire our people to be the best that they can be. Through exposure to the expansive landscape of innovations in mobility, our highly diverse and networked talent pool across the globe works on real time on customer projects. Customer centricity, active employee development, and sustainable management are what give the competitive edge to Schaeffler group.

Our Purpose

We pioneer motion to advance how the world moves

Motion and mobility are key factors for successfully meeting our global challenges. Our success depends largely on our ability to rethink and produce pioneering solutions for motion and mobility. The invention of the cage-guided needle roller bearing positioned Schaeffler at the forefront of motion and mobility right from the outset. We design both rotary and linear motion, in automobiles, machines, wind turbines, and many other industrial applications.

Hence our purpose in today’s environment is just as relevant as it was at the beginning of our 70-year history. It tells us why we are here, and how we respond to the global challenges of today and contribute to building sustainable value for our stakeholders and society as a whole. It also offers our people a sense of meaning and identity, particularly in times of major and constant change.
