Our people - our greatest assets!
Some boasting is in order regarding our global workforce. We truly believe that our employees – some 3,800 in 38 countries – are our greatest assets. Our workforce differentiates us from our competitors. They innovate and adapt to meet changing market conditions. Their dedication and pioneering spirit has contributed to many successful customers over the years, and is the reason for our success.
Our employees eagerly embrace the company's core values in order to help deliver Tomorrow’s Answers Today. Introduced as an integral part of the new AkzoNobel company brand, our five values are designed to set us apart from our competitors and act as a guide to realizing our business goals: focusing on our customer’s future first; embracing entrepreneurial thinking; developing the talents of our people; the courage and curiosity to question; and integrity and responsibility in our actions.
Our business will grow if our people grow too. So we’re committed to professional and personal development. We’ll do all we can to develop existing talents, nurture new skills and help our employees progress within AkzoNobel. Through this commitment, we’ll attract and retain people of the highest quality to develop the business.
