Human resources Looking after our most valued resource Our ambition as a company is to be the first choice of customers, employees and shareholders – as well as being a respected member of society. To realize this ambition, we rely on our single most valuable resource: our people.At AkzoNobel, we look to employ professionals who are entrepreneurial in their thinking and practical in their problem-solving. Once we have those people, we need to train and develop their skills and talents if we’re going to keep moving forward as a company. By doing so, we will ultimately help our customers to become more competitive. That’s why Human Resources Management (HRM) is at the center of our business. By finding and developing the right people, HRM plays a vital part in ensuring our success as a company, both today and into the future. To find out more, read our Human Resources Policy Statement.
