THROUGH SPORT WE HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE LIVES
When it comes to quality of life and outdoor sports, Lucern, one of the most visited cities in Switzerland seems to have it all. From skiing or snowboarding to hiking, canoeing, climbing and mountain biking, there are countless opportunities for active pursuits all year round. But that’s just one of the many reasons we’ve chosen Lucerne as the latest addition to our growing global network. Located in the heart of Switzerland, Lucerne boasts a bustling cultural scene and excellent transport links. We think it’s the ideal place to inspire and stimulate our brand-new team of trailblazers – will you be one of them?
CAREERS WITHOUT BORDERS
adidas Lucerne marks a fresh start: with the opening of our brand-new hub, we’re bringing team players of all seniority levels to central Switzerland. And as with all of our locations worldwide, we’re looking to build a diverse community of like-minded creators and collaborators. No matter where you’re currently based, we welcome talents from all corners of the globe to kick off this new adidas chapter by our side.
Lucerne is just a 40-minute train ride away from the vibrant city of Zurich which is also the biggest in Switzerland, and under half an hour’s drive from Zug – yet its lakeside location and mountainous backdrops make the big cities feel very far away. With the Swiss Alps on your doorstep, Lucerne is the perfect starting point for all types of outdoor adventures.
PIONEERING THE FUTURE OF WORK
At adidas, we give our employees the freedom to shape their own creative process. We encourage them to take risks and to be spontaneous. Sometimes, the best ideas just happen to strike while you’re perfecting that table tennis topspin! That’s why our modern offices combine the latest technology with collaborative workspaces and plenty of breakout areas.
‘No’ isn’t a word you hear often in a team of visionaries and go-getters, but one thing we’re strictly against is dress codes. At adidas, we encourage our employees to dress in a way that makes them feel comfortable.
SPORT NEEDS A SPACE
Those who sweat together, achieve success together. adidas employees build trust and team spirit both in the office and far beyond it. So whether it’s an early-morning workout, a lunchtime run or a weekend ski trip to the mountains, you’ll always find someone to join you in your next active endeavour.
Our Lucerne hub is one of the latest additions to the adidas family – which makes this the perfect time to initiate a new office league or try out a different sport together with your colleagues. It’s never about winning or being the best: it’s about challenging each other, having fun and making new friends along the way.
COLLABORATING WITH THOSE WHO INSPIRE US
Both on the court and in the boardroom, adidas employees take risks and aim high. Backed by empowering leaders and an agile culture, they approach creative problem-solving from innovative and unusual angles. And while we champion freedom and autonomy, we’re also a close-knit community of collaborators and co-creators – learning with and from each other to shape the digital future.
As a global brand, we take our corporate social responsibility very seriously. Our ‘Run for the Oceans’ initiative channels the energy of sport to fight marine plastic pollution worldwide. Every year, we invite runners worldwide to join us in our endeavour by tracking their runs via the official app – and for every kilometre clocked up, adidas donates $1 to the Parley Ocean School, which educates youth living in coastal areas affected by plastic pollution. We’re also committed to using only 100% recycled polyester by 2024.
THE FUTURE RUNS ON FRESH AND DIVERSE PERSPECTIVES
In an athletic club, no two players have the exact same strengths and weaknesses – and the same holds true for our teams here at adidas. To us, the key to success is bringing together as many different perspectives, ideas and cultural backgrounds as possible. And for such a dynamic and diverse team to thrive, we’ve created an environment where everyone can be their true self and express themselves freely. Whatever your story, we want to hear it.
