OUR CULTURE & LEADERSHIP STYLE
In 1972 in Marseille, Antoine Riboud explained his vision of a company’s role by stating that economic and social goals are interdependent. He declared that “the role and responsibility of a business leader will be judged on two criteria: meeting business targets with shareholders and meeting human and social progress targets for employees." This visionary thinking provided the cornerstone for Danone’s dual economic and social project. To this day, our teams around the world imagine operating models that create economic, social and environmental value. This is what makes Danone truly unique. To uphold its own identity, Danone has held on to its belief in a different style of company.
The quality that makes the difference isn't always tangible. It's a state of mind, a willingness to question and challenge, a unique way of looking at the world. Our powerful culture is built on four values. All over the world - whether in retail outlets, on production lines or with suppliers - our 100,000 employees demonstrate the same openness, the same desire to share, and the same unwavering passion to deliver.
CODE: A UNIQUE LEADERSHIP STYLE
Our values are the beliefs we hold internally and our CODE behaviours are how we demonstrate and bring these values to life. Our selection and learning & development strategies are shaped around CODE accordingly.
