Culture & Values

Our culture, our values

In 1975, our company founder Jan Brand made his technical expertise available on a project basis for the first time. His goal was to enable more flexibility and drive technological progress. To this day, this intention remains the foundation of our diverse and sustainable activities.

Over the last 45 years, we have built a truly sustainable and durable business model: connecting specialists to exciting career opportunities, supporting the development of these careers, and offering fair and equal employment.

Who we are

We are a powerful global network, connecting the most talented and experienced specialists with both present-day and pioneering projects, all around the globe. With 120+ offices and more than 12,000 specialists around the world, we deliver skilled talents and workforce solutions that transform global projects in the  Life Sciences, Renewable Energy, Oil and Gas, Infrastructure, Future Mobility and Mining.

The values we live by

Our values are at the center of everything we do – for our clients, our colleagues and ourselves:

Passion for people

We are Brunel: the sum total of the people who have led and developed this company and all the individuals who currently live out this culture. We protect our future by sharing our thoughts, ideas and methods, promoting an attitude of understanding between cultures and individuals.

Integrity

Delivering a high standard of service and taking care of the people around us is of the utmost importance. An atmosphere of trust and personal responsibility guides us in everything we do, always within the framework of full global compliance.

Results-driven

It takes results-driven actions and the will to succeed to find the straightest path to your goal. We consciously seek out people who consistently strive for excellence and exude an enthusiastic personal energy. When we find them, we challenge and nurture them.

Entrepreneurship

Whatever we do, we do to a standard of quality that meets the exacting demands of our clients. Together, we pursue personal and entrepreneurial goals with passion and dedication.

Our voices

  • Together with motivated and committed colleagues, we have created a DIB community in North America to change the world of work for the better. I am very pleased that this commitment is supported by the Leadership Team and that further DIB councils are now being rolled out across all Brunel regions.

  • Ever since our founding in 1975, everyone at Brunel has lived and breathed our core values: the entrepreneurial spirit, the results-driven mindset, our passion for people and our high standards of equity and integrity. Our global network of 12,000 specialists strengthens this culture every day through their consistent behavior in line with our values.

  • Companies with a decentralized organizational structure like ours have to do a lot to ensure that the corporate culture reaches every single employee. It only works if we all live it out every day.

    Markus Eckhardt, Managing Director DACH
  • Taylor Hopkinson joining Brunel’s global network of specialists has been a huge success, as we share the same values and entrepreneurial spirit. Together, our vision is to enable a diverse, global workforce that will drive the world’s transition to sustainable energy.
