The values we stand for

We base our global strategy and everyday operations on strong values and principles:


Individual talent is little or nothing without collective strength. And solidarity is one of Arkema’s great strengths. It is the foundation of One Arkema. Knowing how to work as a team without butting egos but listening to each other, is vital.


Performance is the cornerstone of any business. Arkema is very demanding in this area. Financial performance and operational performance, of course, but also a more qualitative and collective performance. Performance means excellence. It also evokes the performance of our materials.


This is the contract of trust. The ability to know how to delegate and to be convinced that each person, whatever their level, can and must make a difference.


Simplicity is a way of being, a state of mind. It means remaining humble and knowing how to question oneself. It is a particular way of operating, all the more important in today’s complex world. It’s knowing how to manage your priorities and go straight to the essentials, presenting things simply so as to encourage agility and efficiency.


The social role of the company is increasingly evident. And it cannot just stop at the company’s doorstep. It includes all stakeholders. Diversity and inclusion go hand in hand. We must be exemplary in this area. Everyone must be involved, because diversity is an essential asset for the Group to achieve its ambitions.

Arkema, a recognized and certified employer

Arkema certified Top Employer 2024

Top_Employer_France_2024.pngFor the third year in a row, Arkema has been officially certified as a Top Employer in France, and also in China, the United States, Brazil, Germany, Netherlands, UK, Spain, Italy and the Philippines.

This renewal of our local Top Employer certification is given in recognition of the excellence of our HR practices in these ten countries, which account for more than two-thirds of our employees and recruitments worldwide.

The Top Employer audit covers all aspects of human resources: recruitment of talent, quality of life at work, career management, training and skills development, as well as our efforts to promote diversity and inclusion.

"Every year, the Top Employer initiative enables us to identify our strengths and areas for improvement. By comparing ourselves with the benchmark (internal and external), we can identify ways to improve.” Raphaële Grivel, Head of HR development for France.

Under the provisions of decree No. 2019–15 of January 8, 2019, aimed, in particular, at eliminating the differences in compensation between men and women, Arkema France, with more than 1,000 employees, achieved a result of 88 out of 100 for the reference year 2023.
