Nurturing a safe and healthy workplace
Ensuring the safety, health and wellbeing of everyone at Givaudan is something we take very seriously. From the day our employees start working for us we want them to feel well looked after.
We have implemented comprehensive health and safety programmes, tools and training to ensure we can care for our own safety, health and wellbeing, and that of our colleagues.
To support the health and wellbeing of our employees we have implemented several occupational health programmes as well as initiatives supporting mental and emotional health and wellbeing. We offer ergonomics programmes, a global employee assistance programme as well as local fitness programmes, mental wellbeing webinars, local employee support groups, mental health first aiders, and Leadership Senses¹ programmes and tools.
The Leadership Senses suite of programmes are designed by Givaudan for Givaudan to help our leaders be the best they can be. They are challenging and inspiring, offering participants the opportunity to experiment with new ways of thinking and working.
Nurturing and growing our positive safety culture
A good health and safety culture is critical to reducing the number of work-related injuries. At Givaudan, we support the development of such a culture by nurturing and growing it together, and by caring for each other, our people and our place.
Taking new steps in our continuous improvement and progress on 2025 safety ambitions, we also started to roll-out new learning from events cross-functional training sessions for professionals in Givaudan. The initiative is part of our EHS strategy and offers training as well as an opportunity to interact and discuss the topics with peers throughout the Company. In 2022, we have reduced our total recordable case rate by 36% since 2018.
