What attracts a talented individual to a global company? Many would say it's the corporate culture and work environment that make all the difference.
There is more to QIAGEN, of course, than facts and figures, markets and customers, products and production. Team enthusiasm and a collaborative spirit are a strong part of our corporate culture and identity. In a congenial environment like ours, the exchange of ideas can take place anywhere – not just during a team meeting, for example – but at lunch, over a coffee, or even waiting for the elevator. Surrounded by inspired and like-minded colleagues, inspiration could strike anytime.
Dr. Annette Koch, Chief Human Resources Officer, explains the unique culture at QIAGEN like this: “The wonderful thing about QIAGEN is the nice working environment, surrounded as we are by collegial, congenial and like-minded colleagues. The culture here is scientific rather than political. There’s a commitment to honesty and openness. Our achievements are fact based, not just a lot of talk, and we have a high level of respect and integrity for each other.”
Collaborative, cross-culture & global organization
Time and again, when we speak with our employees at sites across the globe, we hear about the engaging and collaborative environment that helps making QIAGEN not only a successful company but a great place to work.
“I enjoy the freedom I'm given to make informed decisions and steer my products.”
Divya vijay pratheek, global product manager With more than 35 sites in 25 countries, we have grown to be truly global, having rapidly expanded from our flagship site in Hilden, Germany to countries and cultures across the globe. None of this growth would have been possible without the tremendous collaborative spirit that we have fostered from the beginning.
Without a global vision from the start, becoming a worldwide market leader would have been out of reach. A desire to embrace the various styles of communicating and doing business around the world has led to company success and customer satisfaction across the globe.

Diversity and inclusion make our teams strong
Based on the philosophy that "diversity strengthens us as an organization," our leaders actively strive to promote and implement diversity at all levels. Not only does diversity make QIAGEN a better place to work, it is a key success factor on the path to achieving our mission and goals.
Our commitment to diversity and inclusion
We are committed to continue creating an environment where all individuals have the opportunity to grow and contribute to our progress, regardless of their age, educational background, gender, nationality, physical abilities, race and ethical background, religion, or sexual orientation.
Diverse individuals make better teams
Teams strengthen our organization through the richness of their ideas and opinions. Furthermore, teams outperform and succeed when they are composed of individuals with the widest possible range of personalities, backgrounds, and traits.
Our individuals and teams promote diversity
Individuals and teams alike understand the diverse needs of our customers, identify and realize cross-functional opportunities for our business areas, can quickly adapt to a fast changing environment, respect people’s cultural differences, and include a range of opinions in their thinking to encourage individuals to make a contribution with their diverse experiences and perspectives.
