We define our business culture using a set of core values: the Bostik way
The Bostik way is our company culture. It is the glue that bonds all our employees together across 50 countries and five continents. It is our shared experience.
The Bostik way
...means to think and act differently, to invent new ways of working and new answers to 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 the initiative and knowing how to do innovative things to benefit Bostik.
...requires us to stay alert, to 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.
…is the capacity to endure. It is aspiring to long-term environmental, economic and social well-being. It means evolving, adapting and endeavoring 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.
…is 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 honor of the group. It allows regular people working together to bond and accomplish extraordinary things.
… 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 a tried and proven honesty and truthfulness, as well as an active and conscious respect for the standards of one’s profession.
Keeping our commitment…
…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 honoring promises, setting goals and being true to them. Because keeping commitments, even when difficult, creates positive power.
I interpret the Bostik way as a way to state our core values which have been built over time, and to gather the essentials of our shared culture. These values are the foundation of how people work together at Bostik, and how we collaborate with our customers and suppliers. - Igor Leclere, Business Director - Americas Industrial Adhesives
