OUR CORE HUMAN VALUES

I make no concessions when it comes to people's safety, 
 inside and outside the company.

We recruit very lively, helpful, and practical sports enthusiasts, 
"stronger than us.”

I act responsibly to make a positive social and environmental impact.
From day one, I'm in charge of a measurable assignment, for which 
I'm accountable each month during my monthly meeting.

I'm not doing this alone. I'm part of a team with whom I work with and 
regularly report to.

I make decisions on issues that relate to me and 
measure their consequences.

I am allowed to make mistakes. 
Every day is a new beginning.

My job is eventful and interesting (I'm responsible from start to finish). I'm trained 
to develop my skills to be the best at what I do.

We have a relationship built on trust.

We do sport and celebrate our victories together.

We support internal promotion and “zig-zag” career paths.

We share value created - people / environmental / business.
