When Solvay signs an agreement to guarantee its employees’ social rights worldwide, it isn’t about putting on a friendly corporate face. Rather, it’s additional proof of the Group’s ongoing commitment to openness and transparency when it comes to social dialogue, a key element in Solvay’s transformation journey.
“Social dialogue is an opportunity, not a risk.”This quote from Solvay CEO Jean-Pierre Clamadieu pretty much sums things up when it comes to the company’s way of apprehending dialogue with its workforce. “It’s a political stance,says Jean-Christophe Sciberras, Solvay’s head of industrial relations. We have a positive vision: social dialogue helps us improve as a company. It’s therefore no surprise we are pioneers in this field.”
