Leading by example

Our Values

Our company is named after Moritz Carl Hensoldt (1821-1903). He was a German pioneer in optics and precision mechanics and developed breakthrough technologies revolutionizing surveillance and reconnaissance.

In his time, he was a real inventor! In our company we attach great importance to pioneering spirit and entrepreneurship as key to fulfilling our mission for our customers and employees. We have four key values to develop this mindset and give us orientation and coherence for all our decisions and interactions.

  • Collaboration

    Collaboration is the foundation of our culture and our most important value, cultivating the spirit of ‘we are one team’, because only together can we be innovative and successful. Motivated and autonomous employees working together, and respecting and trusting each other for the sake of the company across departments and according to their individual strengths are at the heart of what we call collaboration. Innovation, excellence and ownership are the three pillars of entrepreneurship.

  • Innovation

    Innovation is crucial to engineer cutting-edge technology. At Hensoldt, innovation emerges from the right people and the right mix of diverse individuals working collaboratively and inclusively according to their strengths, unleashing creativity and passion through their work. We encourage all our employees to share their ideas and be curious, to experiment by taking calculated risks and to learn from their success or failure

  • Excellence

    We conduct every project with one priority: excellence. It means being efficient, simple and agile to deliver the highest quality in all we do to best satisfy our customers. Creating value for our customers and our employees is at the heart of our excellence.

  • Ownership

    We take responsibility for what we do and what we say. Our solutions are vital; they make a decisive contribution to protecting citizens, soldiers and nations all over the world. Armed forces trust us and our successful key projects reflect our reliability and integrity. We say what we do and we do what we say. 

Our company culture


Diversity and inclusion are an important part of our company culture and a key contribution to the successful future of Hensoldt in our global world.

We can only achieve our business objectives and satisfy our customers with diverse and inclusive teams, where all employees are respected and valued for their distinctive characteristics and where everyone has an opportunity to fully participate in a high-performance culture.

At Hensoldt, diversity encompasses visible and non-visible factors that describe a person. Gender, age or race but also background, experience, skills, ethnicity, and many more unique characteristics that make us individuals and unique belong to our understanding of diversity.
By creating an inclusive working environment we protect our employees, make them feeling free to express their uniqueness, to give and receive feedback and to challenge the status quo in order to be creative and innovative and to embrace new business approaches. Through an embedded and consistent approach in recruiting, mobility, training and talent development, we strive to improve diversity in our teams. Through various initiatives, we want to trigger a cultural change, raise awareness of the people’s capabilities and eliminate bias regarding any kind of diversity.

We value differences and diversity in thoughts and opinions because differences nurture creativity, a pioneering spirit and high performance.

  • Internationality

    HENSOLDT is an international company: widely presented in different countries which are located in five continents (Europe, Africa, Asia, North America and South America), diversity is a natural component of our company culture.

    Working in multicultural teams is normal at all our locations because a mixture of backgrounds and cultures in a team provide new ideas and new ways of working, and enhance our understanding of our customers from all over the world. We encourage our employees to be internationally mobile with assignments abroad.

    We are proud to have a culture based on values coming from all our locations. For instance, we integrated the ‘ubuntu’ philosophy from our South African colleagues, which promotes humanity toward others. Including ubuntu in our company values had led to great results, strengthening collaboration, respect and empathy

  • Gender-balanced Teams

    We believe in gender-balanced teams to be more effective. Our objective is to increase the number of women in management and technical positions. To achieve this, we start early with awareness initiatives about science and technology fields targeting young girls in schools and we address and attract female graduates through our partnerships with universities and dedicated fairs.

    Internally, we place much emphasis on increasing visibility, identification and development of female talents. We encourage and support self-initiative through e.g. an active women’s network offering possibilities to make connections and regular events to meet up and discuss their experiences and business topics, thus benefiting from our diversity.

  • Generations

    We believe in engaging all generations in the workplace to benefit from everyone’s experience, regardless of their age.

    We support employees of different age groups in connecting with each other and working in mixed-aged teams, as well as encouraging them to share their knowledge. We understand the generational characteristics of each individual by taking into consideration their current life path.

    Additionally, our health promotion initiatives, regular family days – opening up the company and the workplace to family members – and possibilities to take time out to care for relatives contribute to better connections and understanding across generations.

  • Disability

    HENSOLDT is committed to fully include people with disabilities in an optimised working environment.

    Our agreements with social partners strive for the promotion of equal opportunities, the development of sustainable working conditions and make sure that all disabled employees benefit from the same career opportunities and personal development.

    We are working continuously to raise awareness and eliminate bias against disability through an extensive range of initiatives. We have a partnership with associations providing services or goods produced by disabled workers.
