About Robert Bosch -
In 1886, Robert Bosch founded the “Workshop for Precision Mechanics and Electrical Engineering” in Stuttgart. This was the birth of today's globally active Robert Bosch GmbH. From the very beginning, the company's history has been characterized by innovative drive and social commitment. We have compiled the highlights from over 125 years in our archives.
Robert Bosch corporate culture
Our corporate culture makes us unique. It is part of why our associates are proud to work for Bosch. It creates a special bond. And it guides our actions and our interactions with one another. That’s how we are building a successful future together.
We created the “House of Orientation” as a frame of reference for all associates that sets forth explicitly what our goals are, how we work together and what we as a company stand for.
What guides us:
Robert Bosch vision
Our vision “Creating value – sharing values” stands for our corporate goal. We strive to create value with innovative, beneficial products. This will ensure our sustained success so we can retain our entrepreneurial freedom and financial independence – which in turn allow us to act according to our convictions and to take on social and environmental responsibility.
Our mission helps us achieve our vision. We need outstanding accomplishments and continuous improvement in order to achieve long-term success. The title of our mission, “BeQIK,” summarizes what’s most important: quality (Q), innovation (I), customer orientation (K for the German term “Kundenorientierung”) and speed
Our values, core competencies and management systems
In order to turn our vision into reality, our values are just as important as our core competencies. We also use tools that ensure we can keep improving and adapt quickly. That is exactly what our management systems do.
Our values: Encompassing change and continuity
Bosch has always been a value-driven company. Many of our values can be traced back to our founder Robert Bosch, other values have changed or have arisen over the decades.

Bosch was founded more than 120 years ago. Being around for more than a century means that they are a very agile organization, yet they are old fashioned in some ways – they give their associates a stable career, a place where minds are given the opportunity to think, reflect and create.
If they had to describe the work environment in just a handful of words they would be ‘Quality’, ‘Innovation’ and ‘Customer orientation’. Each person makes his or her own contribution to follow these lodestones of their organization. Innovation is a part of their daily lives. There are contests for submitting the most innovative award, there are patents being filed regularly, knowledge management and knowledge sharing best practices – all this contributes to the daily atmosphere at Bosch in India. All these practices are what they offer their associates to make their own.
