We are a small and dynamic organisation with flat hierarchies and individual career paths. With our hybrid working model we are offering a flexible working environment in which everybody can deliver their best. We believe that teams are stronger than individuals. And that business should not only be about profit, but about having a positive impact on people’s lives.
Driven by a purpose
We are passionate about making a difference in people’s lives with our products and services. We never compromise on quality and craft our products with care for the consumer and the environment. Being driven by integrity is at the core of our Japanese heritage.
This is what we mean by “kirei” – making life beautiful for people and the planet.
We aim for entrepreneurial thinking and innovation to make us better every day. We try out new ideas that help us to constantly learn and grow. We listen to each other, our internal experts and to our consumers for better insights.
Learning on the job as well as trainings and mentoring programs help our people to develop and grow – both as a person and a professional.
Leave your mark
From day one our people enjoy a wide range of responsibilities so they can leave their mark. We want everybody to bring in their ideas and unleash their creativity – no matter if they are new to the business or an experienced leader. You can pitch and trial your ideas in various incubator programs.
Everybody’s opinion counts. This way we empower our people to perform at their peak.
More than just a team
Despite being part of a big global corporation, we foster flat hierarchies and approachable leaders because we believe in the power of teams. Great results come from a culture of trust, fun and team spirit. Our people are appreciated as individuals, both challenging and supporting each other in equal measure.
Many of us describe Kao as a family in which we trust and value each other. And of course, have a lot of fun together!
With our hybrid working model we combine mobile and office work, offering flexibility where needed. This way, we give everybody the opportunity to create a way of working that lets them perform at their best while taking care of their mental and physical health as much as of their family and friends.
Together with our health and social benefits we support an agile work culture to ensure your personal and professional development.
Create your journey
We believe that change comes from taking opportunities into our own hands. This is why at Kao there are no fixed career paths. Together with their managers, our people define their own learning and career journey that suits their individual strengths.
At Kao, you can take your career into your own hands and shape it so it becomes your career!
