Innovation is what drives us forward

Bosch is one of the world’s largest technology and research powerhouses. Our most important innovations include the spark plug, anti-locking brake system (ABS), the satellite navigation system, web-enabled MEMS sensors and the ultra-short pulse laser. A total of 45,700 employees work on innovations in our locations on three continents. Their budget for 2015 was 5 billion Euros.

Technology leadership

Innovation is essential to the success of our company. We enhance the efficiency of established technologies and develop the technologies of the future. We reduce the consumption of combustion engines, develop renewable energy systems and work on solutions for electro-mobility. Since November 2013, Bosch has been testing technologies that will allow the digital networking of an entire city in the “Monaco 3.0” pilot project. “Our broad footprint and technological expertise, combined with the creativity and motivation of our associates, are absolutely essential for innovation and growth”, underlines Volkmar Denner, chairman of the board of management of Robert Bosch GmbH.

 

Innovative corporate culture

Innovative solutions are not only important in the field of technology. Social developments like globalization and demographic change also affect us as a company. Bosch operates in 350 locations around the world. Employees from more than 110 countries work for Bosch in Germany alone. And in some of our enterprises, up to four generations work together. That diversity among our employees requires a transformation of our working culture, which we are promoting through innovative projects and initiatives.

The project MORE (Mindset ORganisation Executives) is a new practical test for a new culture of work. When Bosch celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2011, we launched a project in which initially 150 managers from all levels of leadership were able to test flexible working-hour models for a specific period. The project was so successful that MORE was offered throughout the corporation the following year. By now, around 1,000 managers have participated in MORE worldwide.
