Making the world better, safer and more beautiful with light requires exceptional talent.

To attract and retain the right people with the right skills, Lumileds provides opportunities for employees to learn and grow in their careers and develop new skills and capabilities. Our unique culture also contributes to our ability to attract and retain great employees. We thrive on collaboration as an organization and trust in the experience and expertise of our colleagues. We also welcome diverse viewpoints and always act with integrity and respect for each other.

Reinforcing Lumileds Culture and Values

We are committed to creating a culture that inspires employees to pursue and grow their careers with us. In 2018, Lumileds launched a companywide Culture initiative designed to further bring our values—innovation, quality, execution, care for customers, collaboration and integrity—to life in everything that we do. To support the initiative, we brought together enthusiastic employees around the globe to form a “Culture Champions” network. The network helps to leverage the collective intelligence of our diverse team members to drive culture change in a way that resonates with our employees globally.

More than a Job: Developing an Employee Value Proposition

Lumileds operates in markets where there is fierce competition for talent. Launched in 2018, Lumileds new Employee Value Proposition (EVP) highlights the unique and differentiated areas where we want to excel as an employer. The EVP outlines the value that employees provide to the company and clarifies what they can expect from Lumileds in return.


By creating learning and development opportunities for employees, we help them grow and advance. In 2017, we launched a new Learning Management System (LMS) that offers employees virtual and instructor-led courses on hundreds of topics and helps them keep track of their professional development. Some of the subjects covered by the LMS in 2018 include influential leadership, risk-based thinking, and process optimization. Since launching in July 2017, Lumileds has hosted nearly 5,000 courses through the LMS with over 115,000 attendees.
