Our People

Corporate Social Responsibility

We provide stable and exciting jobs for over 7,000 people globally. A significant number of those employees are so loyal and dedicated to our mission that they have been with us for several decades. We are proud to be able to provide jobs and help stimulate the local economy in so many communities around the world.

In a decisive and responsible move to protect its factory employees from the current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, Bruker Daltonics has implemented a comprehensive COVID-19 testing program at its Bremen facility. Using the Bremen site as a pilot center, the company plans to roll out this key initiative to other Bruker locations across Europe.

Many people who have found themselves working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic are having to embrace the daily challenges of remaining connected, communicating remotely and working with new technology.

These unprecedented and uncertain times have presented a challenge for many families across the globe for the last few months, and the pressure on frontline staff is clear to everyone. Healthcare workers in particular are going far above and beyond their normal roles, working tirelessly to protect and save the lives of their patients.

Strong teams of experts comprising talented individuals armed with complex technical knowledge are valuable assets to any company. Managers, however, need more; they also need people skills if they are to manage effectively. When we at Bruker realized that we could do more to support our managers, we initiated a training program that would enable them to lead others with confidence.

The COVID-19 pandemic has starkly demonstrated the world's volatility and the ensuing havoc that can rapidly be caused. All too often, it takes a crisis or an unexpected disruption to the daily routine to highlight weaknesses lying just beneath the surface. A company's strategy is no different.

Work. It occupies a significant portion of our life - approximately one third of it. Our people are the narrative behind Bruker. Their diversity, creativity and talent enable us to bring innovative technology to science communities across the world to improve quality of life. We want their time at work to have a positive impact on their lives.

For some people, career choices are clear from an early age. Take Dominik Zehnder, one of the current crop of apprentices at our NMR Center of Excellence in Fällanden, Switzerland, for example. As a young teenager Dominik was building radio-controlled model cars, and a technical vocation was clearly calling. So, how did he end up at Bruker?

Choosing a career is rarely a straightforward affair. Young people, who have little experience of the working world are expected to make a momentous decision based on very little knowledge. Unless they have a firm 'calling' to a certain profession, how can they really know whether the career they think they want will meet their expectations?

An initial meeting with some mechanical engineers at a carees fair in Zurich in 2018 made Nilo Blum decide he wanted to become a design engineer. That set him on a path which will lead him to study mechanical engineering at a Fachhochschule (a university specifically for technical and applied subjects) in three years' time.

Back in 2018, Jonas Streckfuss contacted Bruker about the programs available for students finishing secondary school, having known he had always wanted to work within the business. At the age of 18, Jonas joined Bruker's Industrial Clerk apprenticeship - a three-year program in which he will qualify as a certified industrial clerk.

Luna Fonzo is looking forward to the final stage of her apprenticeship as a Design Engineer at Bruker. She is just about to start the 4th year of the program and is excited about completing and presenting the project that will combine everything she has learned and mark her 'graduation'. After this, Luna would like to stay at Bruker and put her skills and knowledge to use working on the company's products of the future.
