voestalpine has always promoted diversity and equality. For World Cultural Diversity Day on May 21, the steel and technology Group will clearly demonstrate its commitment to diversity in terms of nationality, religion, and culture: 82 different nationalities are working together at the voestalpine sites in Austria alone.

The company supports equal opportunities and implements health-preserving measures in the workplace, as well as offering work models appropriate for the various stages of professional life.


Our priority is a respectful corporate culture that expects and encourages trust, diversity, self-determination, and personal responsibility. A high level of commitment and above-average employee loyalty are key pillars of our success.
