bioMérieux has always been highly committed to the quality of social dialogue and the Executive Committee works in close concertation on several topics with our social partners. Numerous agreements have been signed with our social partners in the area of well-being at work. Thus, in France, an innovative agreement to improve the quality of life at work was unanimously signed in 2019.
At the 10th edition of the Randstad Awards, bioMérieux confirmed it was once again deemed the third most attractive company in France, according to the results of the survey conducted in 2018 among the general public.
The Randstad Employer Brand Research survey was conducted in late 2018 by the research agency TNS. It focused on the attractiveness of over 250 companies operating in France and allowed several thousand people to be interviewed on a dozen of major criteria such as job security, career opportunities, social responsibility...
"This prize represents for us an immense pride. Since its creation more than 55 years ago, bioMérieux has developed a unique entrepreneurial culture, deeply respectful of its employees and driven by a strong family commitment in the service of public health. This Randstad Award demonstrates that we can be innovative and economically efficient, while placing a premium on the well-being of our teams."
