Our people

Cummins is synonymous with integrity, diversity and inclusion, teamwork, excellence and caring for others. These values are deeply rooted in our history, our culture and the people we employ around the world. Our employees come from different backgrounds and experiences, each one unique in their perspectives and passions. They are all united though in their relentless desire to see a world, a workplace and a team where all people are embraced for who they are and what they aspire to do.

At Cummins, we really care about our people and strongly believe in POWERING YOUR POTENTIAL . We provide global opportunities to develop your career, make your community and the environment a better place and give you the flexibility to explore your passions. Our student employees are no exception to this. We really value our students and the impact they make across our business and beyond, so we strive to provide exciting opportunities for growth and progression that extends beyond the placement year. Many of our students have gone on to have long, successful careers at Cummins including our CEO Tom Linebarger, who actually started his Cummins career as a summer intern.

“The culture at Cummins is greatly about inclusion and teamwork, everyone is always offering to help each other out and become better. Even though I was working remotely the amount of help and support I received was amazing and I feel this has helped me to get the most out of my placement” - Bhavisha Mistry, Engineering Placement Student
