Diversity is about all of us, not just some of us. At Terex, our goal is to have a diverse, global workforce in an inclusive workplace that unleashes the talents of all team members. 

This is not just a “nice thing to do,” it’s a business imperative. By fully engaging our team members in “the Terex discussion,” we will all benefit from a broader spectrum of ideas and solutions that will satisfy our customers and lead to the achievement of our business goals.

Our diversity and inclusion focus is in three specific areas:

Our Workforce:       To increase and retain the demographic and skill diversity of our global workforce at all levels, with an emphasis on women and non-majorities in senior management


Our Workplace:      To create an environment where our team members can reach their full potential in support of Terex goals


The Marketplace:    To operate effectively with diverse customers, suppliers, and the communities we serve around the world.

By encouraging and maintaining a diverse and inclusive workplace, Terex will be the best place to work in our industry.

Our Values - The Terex Way


A Message From Ron DeFeo:

There are six values that make up the Terex Way: Integrity, Respect, Improvement, Servant Leadership, Courage and Citizenship. While each of these is fairly easy to understand, I do believe that a brief explanation is appropriate to put them into context: 


  • Integrity: We never sacrifice integrity for profit. We are transparent in all our business dealings. We are accountable to our team members, customers and shareholders for achieving our goals while protecting our reputation and assets.
  • Respect: We provide a safe and healthy environment for our team members. We treat all people with dignity and respect. We value the differences in people’s thinking, backgrounds and cultures. We are committed to team member development.
  • Improvement: We continuously search for new and better ways of doing things, eliminating waste and continually improving. We challenge the status quo and require stretch goals. We work in teams across boundaries to achieve common goals.
  • Servant Leadership: We work to serve the needs of our customers, investors and team members. We nurture a culture of “chain of support” versus “chain of command.” We ask what we can do to help.
  • Courage: We have the personal and professional courage to do the right thing and take risks that may cause us to win as well as to fail periodically. We make decisions and take action. We don’t admonish failure, only failure to learn.
  • Citizenship: We’re good global, local and national citizens. We’re good stewards of the environment and the communities where we live. We participate in making the world we live in a better place.

In my view, if we live the values articulated above we will have tremendous success with our customers, suppliers, and eventually our investors. Our fellow team members will be the highest performing in our industry and we will be able to attract the best talent to continue our journey. This is the company Terex can be in the future.

Every company needs a compass to guide activities. The Terex Way provides that compass.

Ron DeFeo, Chairman and CEO, Terex Corporation

    My experience with Terex has been very positive throughout the first six months of employment. If you've ever been new to an organization you know what kind of challenge I'm talking about. Every hurdle has been met with a solutions based mindset with an attitude of "we can do this". I would recommend Terex to anyone who wanted to work in a place where they can realize their full potential.


    Operational training can be a little more thorough. However, Terex has a way of hiring competent people that can handle the challenge of adversity.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Terex (Redmond, WA).


    2 phone interviews and 2 in person interviews. The department manager even went to the trouble of asking the front desk person how I acted and how I treated them.
