Corporate culture

Generation CLAAS.

Even though we are active all around the globe and manufacture our products at eleven sites worldwide, we still remain a family company. A company which offers everyone a fertile foundation for a successful future.

Those of us who work at CLAAS put our hearts and souls into our work and we are highly committed. We have a shared understanding of teamwork, partnership and being able to rely on each other. This commitment to fulfilling our respective responsibilities is taken very seriously by our staff. There is a good reason why the people who work for us are happy to call themselves Claasians: They extremely identify themselves with our company.

In the long term, new expertise can only develop if the right structures are in place. One important factor in this respect is being able to rely on your employer. We are very proud that length of employment is valued very highly at our company. 85 % of our employees never leave.

Our principles of management and working together


Every CLAAS employee deserves to be respected as a person and recognized for the work that he or she does.


Working together cooperatively in our company requires that staff is involved both in forming opinions and in making decisions.


CLAAS employees work together based on credibility, loyalty and trust.

Prepared to change

As a company, we will be especially successful if we understand and view constant change as an opportunity. 

Diversity at CLAAS.

CLAAS is more than powerful machines. It is the passion of the people who make the decisive contribution to the success of our company. Passion of people from different nations and cultures, with and without disabilities, young and old and of all genders. People like us. Diversity makes us creative, allows us to think outside the box and offers us many opportunities.

  • Genuine equal opportunities.

    With us there are no limits. No matter what gender, gender identity, sexual orientation and identity: Only competence and expertise decide on the areas of work and responsibility at CLAAS. Because we offer genuine equal opportunities and equal rights. We actively stand up for this. For example, every year we explicitly invite female talents to a CLAAS Female Day and encourage them to enter our branch.

  • Generation as tradition.

    We are a family owned enterprise. In some cases, more than three generations of a family work together at CLAAS. And we want to keep it that way. We ensure this through systematic health management as well as through training and development opportunities. Experience meets fresh wind - a future-oriented strategy.

  • People make CLAAS.

    We offer our employees a variety of opportunities. Disabilities are not a factor here. CLAAS promotes diversity. We support everyone on the basis of their strengths and abilities. We create cohesion through the exchange of skills and close cooperation.

  • Around the world.

    You can expect an international working environment at CLAAS. At 35 locations in 19 countries, we are driven by the desire to achieve ever better harvests through efficient and innovative agricultural technology. As a worldwide operating company, we bring together people of different nationalities and ethnic origins. We unite people. People of all origins, religions and beliefs. The diverse views and ways of thinking help to overcome challenges and learn from each other.

  • The characteristics which define us:

    Further education and training are part of our tradition and are highly valued. New opportunities arise constantly in the various CLAAS companies throughout the world. Whether you are a recent graduate, have recently completed a training programme, whether you are a specialist or a generalist.
