people and culture
Multinational employees, one unique culture
As part of a multinational company, the Americas team believes that we bring the shared values of Aalberts worldwide to our unique culture here. Key to our success in the American market are our commitments to performance management, continuous learning, employee engagement, and diversity, equity, and inclusion.
To open up learning opportunities across our entire company footprint, we have entered a partnership with LinkedIn learning, where employees can acquire, enhance, and build a variety of skills and expertise that fit their current roles and prepare them for different functional roles and leadership opportunities.
We are also bringing the Aalberts Connect and Fit program stateside for development of our leadership team. To connect at Aalberts means to understand yourself and your value to the company, while fit means you understand your style of leadership and the personal brand you bring to a management role.
During the pandemic, we conducted our first-ever employee engagement survey company-wide, and the result has been a leadership team more driven to be proactive to create a framework and processes for real culture to grow within our Americas team.
Finally, there is much work to be done at every company, including our own, with regard to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We are on a journey, as we strive to become more diverse in many dimensions. We are making our company a place where people of different races and ethnicities, genders, orientations, as well as those living with disabilities can come together and enjoy working both individually and as a team.
Aalberts is a place where everyone comes together in that pursuit of excellence, bringing our passion for quality, continuous improvement, and innovation to products proudly made in the USA.

And we always act with integrity: leading by example, speaking out when necessary, and being professional in everything we do.
our leadership principles
Our style reflects that we encourage people to get the best out of themselves. We inspire people and we develop ourselves and others. That’s the blood that runs through our veins. We lead by example and we ask our people to be accountable and to think & move quickly. Together with our values these principles are characteristic for our identity.
