What It’s Like to Work Here

Hyster-Yale Group is a highly collaborative family. We have built our culture on the idea that we’re all here to serve a common purpose, and each one of us has the interest and ability to make a contribution. That’s why so many of our best ideas—from product breakthroughs to smart changes in process—start out at the grassroots level and gain momentum through cross-functional teams.

We encourage employees to become directly involved in teams that solve problems and improve our business. By fostering a learning organization where our people can build on their educational background and work experience, we continuously refine our process and products—and we all continue to grow.
