Diversity is in Our DNA

Join the team!

Our Beliefs

Equal opportunities are important to us, because diversity is an asset for all of us C the team and the company. In order to make this diversity in different dimensions possible, GlobalFoundries Dresden supports the employees with different measures.

Health & Inclusion

The health of our employees has top priority at all times and in all areas of the company. Our in-house Health Center provides our employees with a wide range of comprehensive support in maintaining their health.

We promote job security for severely disabled and health-impaired people. We are not only concerned with meeting legal requirements or fulfilling our social responsibility.

The rate of employees with an inclusion background at GlobalFoundries Dresden is currently around four percent. The individual and general interests of employees with health impairments are represented at the site by the Representative Council for Disabled Employees.

Our Way

The company health management system, with the pillar of company integration management, pursues the goal of keeping employees healthy, efficient and motivated. Workplaces are set up in such a way that they can perform their work under optimal external conditions. To this end, we continuously examine possibilities for improvement.

We look at our employees individually: this means that, despite standardization, we consider individual health problems and try to find the optimal workplace for everyone. At the same time, we encourage our employees to invest time and energy in maintaining their own health. We show managers and employees ways and means of identifying and reducing stress. We place particular emphasis on practical and manageable regulations.

  • The Health Center team is available to employees Monday to Friday from 6.00 to 22.00 hours.
  • The interests of people with disabilities are represented by the disabled representatives* at the site.
  • We regularly organize health days to sensitize our employees to health issues and offer them various options for individual health maintenance.
  • The in-house fitness center enables employees, their partners and our contractors to take part in sporting activities close to their workplace. The opening hours are adapted to our shift models so that colleagues working in shifts can also take part in sporting activities.

Educational & Professional Background

People with different educational backgrounds and career histories enrich our company. We strive for an ONEӲƵAPP culture that values contributions regardless of education or professional background of all employees.

We support and motivate each other to learn. We demonstrate understanding and appreciation for the challenges and difficulties of colleagues in other jobs and roles.

Gender & Gender Identity

The semiconductor industry is a very male dominated industry. The gender distribution of the professional and academic degrees relevant to our industry is also reflected in our company. 16.76 percent of the employees of GlobalFoundries Dresden are women.

It is our goal to increase the number of women employed by us step by step. In order to increase the number of women in the professional groups that are important to us, we participate in various vocational training formats (student internships, Genial Sozial etc.) and competitions (Jugend forscht etc.) in order to give girls and boys an insight into the semiconductor industry and to arouse the curiosity of the female student body for a technical profession.

Our Way

  • We live a gender-neutral DU-communication: employees are not reduced to women or men, but are addressed by their first names.
  • We live a gender-appropriate communication, so that everyone feels addressed. Equal pay for equal work is a lived reality at GlobalFoundries Dresden.
  • We enable part-time work for all areas.
  • We are currently developing management development programs for women in technical professions and positions.
  • In the worldwide network GlobalWomen not only women exchange ideas for the professional development of women.


The age dimension plays a major role for us as a company, not only because of demographic change. In mixed-age teams, different values, attitudes and experiences come together.

We as a company and above all our products and customers benefit from this.

ӲƵAPP in Europe

We are global not only in name, we are global and diverse in every respect. Our workforce C our products C our future. The cooperation of more than 3,000 people from over 40 nations is the basis of our success.

For me, diversity means wealth from which I can draw – the opposite of simplicity.
