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. bioMérieux, owned by its founding family, has always preserved its independence and humanistic values, allowing it to fully embrace its corporate social responsibilities (CSR). In a world of constant change, economic performance goes hand in hand with CSR performance.

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.


The employees of bioMérieux find meaning in their work thanks to the Company’s commitment to serve public health. Worldwide, we take action to support them on their career paths so they can develop new skills in a constantly-changing environment.
We implement an ambitious HR policy to ensure that a bioMérieux career is an experience that brings a sense of worth and motivation as well as respect for the balance between their professional and personal lives. Although we operate in over 160 countries today, we continue to place particular importance on the close ties to our home region, which provides the longstanding, solid foundation for our development.
