decentralized structure

Sika’s organizational structure is decentralized, with the management teams in the regions and national subsidiaries playing a pivotal role. The company is customer-focused and is characterized by its traditional flat leadership structures.

Organizational structure

Since embarking on its international expansion, Sika has conducted its global operations through national subsidiaries. These units were later consolidated into regions with higher level management functions. The heads of the regions are members of Group Management. The regional and national management teams bear full profit and loss responsibility, and – based on the Group strategy – set country-specific growth and sustainability targets, and allocate resources.
