Valuing people

For all of us at Givaudan, respect for people and the environment goes hand in hand with our commitment to a sustainable tomorrow. 

We recruit people who are passionate about the work they do and empowered to contribute to a sustainable society. As the leading employer in our industry, with over 13,500 employees globally, we are committed to providing a safe and healthy work environment where people can apply their talents to grow and succeed.

At Givaudan, we embrace a balanced workforce throughout our organisation and are fully committed to a culture of inclusiveness. By reflecting the societies and cultures in which we operate, we strive to strengthen our teams by providing opportunities for people of all backgrounds, gender and locations.

Health, safety and wellness are critical aspects of our sustainability approach and our commitment to employees. Givaudan's Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) commitment is 'Getting everyone home safe, every day'. We engage our employees to actively contribute to this target through awareness campaigns and specific training programmes.

Givaudan recognises that talent management is key to meeting our business and sustainability goals. Our drive to develop and engage our talented professionals is reflected in a comprehensive approach including:

  • Our regional 'ONE' Givaudan employee onboarding initiative
  • A set of customised management training programmes called 'Leadership Senses'
  • A yearly performance cycle that embeds talent reviews and career discussions
  • A culture of continuous learning, curiosity and discussion

No matter what their background or role within Givaudan, each employee contributes to our success in creating delightful sensory experiences that touch people's lives. Our unique 'DNA' is a personality that pervades our business, translating into a desire to inspire, challenge and act with heart and soul.

Our approach to working with people supports the following United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:



Partnering for potential

Solving today’s sustainability issues is a huge undertaking with many diverse challenges. Effective, long-term solutions can only be found by working together through joint initiatives.

Givaudan partners with suppliers, associations and non-profit organisations across our entire supply chain to meet these challenges in an efficient and mutually beneficial manner.

Together, we are stronger.
