Diversity & Inclusion

We are partners of the Women’s Engineering Society (WES)

Our partnership demonstrates Konecranes commitment to bringing more female employees into the engineering industry and developing a more diverse workforce. As a company partner, we attend events run by Women’s Engineering Society to learn about and share good practice as well as advertising engineering vacancies on the WES website job boards and newsletters, to reach a larger network. 

We are particularly passionate about inspiring and supporting women to achieve their potential as engineers and we are delighted to be part of this.

Attracting women to engineering roles is unfortunately a common challenge and one that many engineering companies also face. Our partnership with WES supports our global diversity programme and enable us to access best practice advice in hopefully encouraging more women into engineering and to Konecranes.

Our broader commitment to an inclusive workplace includes attracting, supporting and advancing women who work with us. We are excited about the community we want to build and hope it will grow and inspire more women to join us.

Our Industrial Service business is very much focused on profitable growth. To achieve these ambitious plans, we need to attract and recruit the right people from across the engineering community. Our focus is to deliver world class service through our proactive and consultative customer approach. Our success depends not only on our world class products and tools but on further developing our diverse and inclusive workplace. We have many available service roles within the business which historically, have been predominantly filled by men. Our partnership with WES is an important part of our recruitment strategy to reach out to women within the engineering community to promote and fill the available roles which are open within Konecranes.

Konecranes Demag UK Ltd receives the Armed Forces Covenant Bronze Award

Bronze Award holders seek to promote an Armed Forces friendly position and are open to employing Reservists and supporting their training and mobilisation commitments.

The Company has made a commitment to support the Armed Forces community and recognise the contribution to society and business made by serving, reservist and veteran military personnel. As an Armed Forces friendly organisation, the Company has pledged to promote a recruitment pathway for service personnel, their spouses and partners, ensuring that no member of the Armed Forces faces a disadvantage in seeking employment. The company also recognises that in some circumstances special treatment may be appropriate and has promised support, including special leave and deployment, for reservists and leaders of military cadet organisations.

Karen Winfield, UK HR Director, Konecranes Demag UK Ltd, stated: “We are extremely proud to receive the Bronze Award. There is a strong synergy between the training and education programmes provided to engineers in the Armed Forces and the skill sets required by lifting equipment Service Technicians. As such, ex-military personnel represent a large pool of talent from which we can recruit for our national network of after-sales’ support services.”
