Hexagon has been recognized as a WBA Leading Employer in the World Business Awards 2022. The key attributes of WBA Leading Employers outline the characteristics of well-managed, high-performing, industry leading organizations that provide a stimulating and supportive workplace.
Hexagon has long been a leader in delivering smart digital realities that require real-time and autonomous data capture, analysis and visualisation. We integrate real-world sensor inputs with software solutions built to analyse, predict and act to create new and more complete realities that address uncertainty and enable resilient organisations, teams, and workflows. Our digital reality solutions enable customers to harness the rapidly increasing amounts of data, putting it to work to boost efficiency, productivity, quality, and safety across industrial, manufacturing, infrastructure, public sector and mobility applications. Above all, we are inspired by a future where data is autonomously leveraged so that business, industry, and humanity sustainably thrive.
Acquisitions play a vital role in strengthening Hexagon’s solutions portfolio and accelerating the growth strategy. We made six acquisitions in 2021 to further strengthen these capabilities in the areas of manufacturing, industrial materials tracking, augmented reality applications and EAM (enterprise asset management).
Hexagon’s Asset Lifecycle Intelligence division empowers vital industries to construct and operate more profitable, safe, and sustainable industrial facilities. In April 2022, we changed our divisional name from PPM to now Asset Lifecycle Intelligence. This evolution is being driven by the unprecedented opportunity we see in the market. Our customers share a common set of goals, including the need to have real-time intelligence of their assets. Our new divisional name is reflective of our focus and expertise in supporting the entire asset lifecycle throughout our customer’s digital journey.
Attracting, hiring, developing, and long-term retention of the industry’s best employees is key to Hexagon’s success. Hexagon employs more than 22,000 people globally across 50 countries including many highly skilled engineers and software developers. Our leadership is approachable, transparent and in line with our guiding business principles and values that are at the heart of everything we do. Ours is a culturally diverse, challenging, and professionally rewarding workplace where self-development and career progression is always in your hands. We continue to invest in training, development opportunities and systems to enable our people to continue growing and progressing in their career aspirations, stay motivated, engaged, and challenged. We reward, recognise, and celebrate our employee success and achievements along the way.
As a global organisation, Hexagon values and respects employee differences and strives to build a working environment where different values and perspectives are actively harnessed to create the best solutions for the equally diverse customer base. In 2020, we announced a diversity and inclusion network to promote inclusion and diversity at every level within the division through inclusive initiatives and training. Hexagon seeks actively to recruit, continually develop and retain talented people from diverse backgrounds and origins. All current and future employees are treated with equal respect and equal opportunity to contribute fully to the company’s success based on individual skills and interests.
With employees worldwide, Hexagon has been welcomed by many communities, giving their support, talent, and resources to Hexagon’s business. This makes Hexagon a global company with a local heart, and it’s important to give something back. We’ve recently built strong internal momentum in our sustainability pursuit, launching our first company-wide sustainability strategy and programme. The identified goals include significant reductions in our carbon footprint, better management and risk mitigation across our supply chain and gender balance improvements across our leadership positions.
With a focused strategy and approach on competence development, anti-discrimination, diversity, employee engagement and health and safety, we are a trusted strategic partner to our customers and recognised as an employer of choice.
