Our Culture

The Bostik way

Boldness...

...means to think and act differently, to invent new ways of working and come up with new answers to meet the needs of our customers and colleagues.

Boldness means daring to propose, invent and act. But boldness is not rashness. It is understanding you can do anything if you are well prepared. It is taking initiative and knowing how to do innovative things to benefit Bostik.

Openness…

...means requiring us to stay alert, listen to our customers and colleagues, and be attentive and active in our responses.

Openness means demonstrating a personal and collective readiness to hear new suggestions, ideas, influences and opinions. It means being receptive to new concepts outside our sphere of understanding and embracing those we find beneficial to our business. 

Sustainability…

…means the capacity to endure. It is aspiring to long-term environmental, economic and social well-being. It means evolving, adapting and endeavouring to improve in the face of constant new challenges.

Sustainability requires us to consider the long-term future of our company, our customers and our colleagues in all our choices and actions while respecting the environment.

Team spirit…

…means respect and recognition of others. It is fostering solidarity and sharing responsibility when working together to achieve a common goal.

Team spirit affects the way people feel, their pride in their team and the need to succeed together. It inspires enthusiasm, devotion and a strong regard for the honour of the group. It allows regular people working together to bond and accomplish extraordinary things. 

Integrity…

… means steadfast commitment to a strict moral and ethical code. It means fairness and clarity in conduct and adherence to the facts. It means demonstrating our incorruptibility.

Integrity signifies tried and tested honesty and truthfulness, as well as an active and conscious respect for the standards of one’s profession. 

Keeping our commitments…

…means delivering on a serious agreement to do something. It means putting the full force of personal integrity behind an action.

Keeping our commitment means honouring promises, setting goals and being true to them. Because keeping commitments, even when difficult, creates positive power. 

Working the Bostik way

Along the years, the Bostik way has become firmly rooted in our DNA shaping the way we work and interact with each other and shaping our global HR policy, tools, and training programmes.

The Bostik way also aligns with the competencies that guide our personal development plans. In France, for example, the Bostik team has translated the six values into practical actions to help managers in their daily roles.

The Bostik way is one of our strongest assets. Its values are guiding principles that all employees can use when they are looking for references in their actions and decisions.
