Our Culture

Kennametal's work culture encourages different thinking.

While our many offices around the world reflect the working styles of the region or country in which they are located, Kennametal also reinforces a set of values and principles that create a consistent culture across our enterprise.

Different thinking: We always foster creativity, encouraging you to think outside of established boundaries and engage in informed risk taking. It's what sets us apart from the competition.

Belief in people: We are committed to attracting, engaging, developing and retaining the best people, while providing a great place to work with opportunities for continuous learning. Manager, leadership and sales training are just a few of the programs in which our employees around the globe participate.

Inclusive setting: Given the diversity of our global team, we are an organization that believes our individuality makes us collectively stronger. We value the unique contributions of every employee, knowing they lead to the different thinking that is our competitive strength.

Performance focus: We're all committed to delivering top-tier results, so we relentlessly focus on planning, executing and exceeding expectations with accountability. The Kennametal Value Business System represents the business processes we use to manage our company and execute strategies for customers, including Lean and Six Sigma.

Integrity always: We're a company that treats people fairly, demonstrates trust and attempts to always do the right thing. We're proud to be recognized by Ethisphere Institute as one of the 2012 World's Most Ethical Companies.
