Curious, courageous, and colourful: this is how our company acts, and this is how we see our people around the globe. We want to innovate everywhere and with everyone in our organization. And we know that innovation flourishes best within a working culture that encourages out-of-the-box ideas, and offers the freedom and resources to develop these ideas. In this way, innovation comes directly from our people, who network, communicate, share knowledge, exchange, work in cross-functional, interdisciplinary teams, and build and develop ideas inside and outside of the company.
Embracing the drivers of innovation
In order to establish and strengthen a culture of innovation at Covestro, we have developed regular community events that encourage, recognize and reward the most resourceful innovators among us. Supporting experimentation, tolerating failure, learning from mistakes, and taking calculated risks: we consider all of these things important prerequisites for innovation, and we embrace them. In the creative process, every perspective is valued because the most resourceful and unexpected solutions are achieved through teamwork, by sharing insights and connecting people. When we have created an innovation, we make every effort to protect, capture and deliver the value it delivers.
