Values, topics, achievements

Why Walter impresses


As a globally active company with around 3300 employees, Walter offers you outstanding development opportunities. Our products are excellent quality – just like your career prospects at Walter.

Our success is based on our values, our achievements, our company culture and, above all, our employees.

​What you can expect from us and we expect from you
As a company that promises its customers "Engineering Kompetenz", we are always looking for employees who want to use their knowledge in a way that benefits the customer. We call this "know-why". Walter employees learn how to employ not only technical, but also entrepreneurial and holistic methods. And that creates added value for the customer and Walter, but primarily also for the employees. Networked thinking and interdisciplinary collaboration across country borders are not only encouraged at Walter, they are required. It goes without saying that transfers from one function to another within our international group are also possible. At Walter, you can effect change and drive forward exciting topics such as digitalisation.

As part of talent management and succession planning, we also offer attractive career prospects and the possibility of tailor-made development plans and programmes.

What we expect from our employees: The creativity to think in new ways without losing sight of customers, the focus on solutions and the market conditions. Commitment and determination, while keeping colleagues in mind. Networked thinking and interdisciplinary collaboration without shirking responsibility. Specialist knowledge with an eye on the bigger picture.


​What makes Walter special – values and company culture
Cooperation at Walter is characterised by our values: All of our activities focus on the current and future needs of our internal and external customers. This is what we mean by "customer focus". When working with colleagues and partners, "fair play" is our main focus. Our employees are characterised by their passion to be better and to develop ground-breaking innovations.

We attach great importance to diversity – and that applies to our employees, too. What matters to us is not where you come from, but what we can achieve together. This is because we think that the only way to win is to be inspired by as many different ideas and opinions as possible. Our development from a pure tool manufacturer to a future-oriented provider of comprehensive production solutions, even in the digital sector, is a result of this philosophy.


Innovation and motivation
With our capacity for innovation, we set standards and have received the following awards, for example: The MM award for the product innovation Tiger·tec® Gold, the American Eagle Excellence in Industry award, an architecture award for the Walter Technology Center in Tübingen.

Without innovative and motivated employees, our success would not be possible. For this reason, we are particularly proud to award prices to employees for special achievements in defined categories each year.

We also value active idea management in order to continuously develop further. We always work with the results of our regular global employee survey, because our employees' opinions are important to us.
