Responsibility to our workforce

For more than 55 years, the men and women of bioMérieux have focused their expertise and dedication on serving public health all over the world. The company places great importance on our employees’ professional development and success, convinced that economic performance and social responsibility go hand in hand.

Owned by its founding family, bioMérieux has preserved its independence and humanistic values and remains fully committed to its corporate social responsibilities (CSR). We focus particular attention on continuing a tradition of quality social dialogue in a spirit of trust and mutual respect.

We support our employees at every stage of their career – initial training, professional development and retirement – and we aim to create an environment that fosters job performance and career success. In a world of constant change, professional training, talent management and in-house promotion remain our priorities.

Today, with 70% of its workforce located in France and the United States, bioMérieux focus its actions on these two countries as the drivers and reference of the social responsibility policy that the Company seeks to apply to all employees worldwide.
