Our Culture

Our Culture

Stepping stool-

Here, at Linamar Corporation, we have established a culture that thrives on an entrepreneurial spirit of success, results, and opportunity.

At the core of Linamar’s operations is the Stepping Stool. An analogy that signifies three legged stool. Each leg represents one piece of our stakeholders, Customer, Employee, and Financial, who each have a vested interest in the company’s long-term success.

If not in balance at all times, the 3-legged stool is unstable and will eventually fall over. Linamar’s Stepping Stool is focused on maintaining this balance. A business approach that ensures all stakeholders’ success.

The Stepping Stool Strategy drives our focus on decision-making and management practices that provide the most benefit to all of our key stakeholders and operational performance across the entire global organization.
