The Bostik Way

Bostik Way Logo

It is the way of life in Bostik as shown in our ordinary, everyday behaviour and attitudes towards each other. It is the way we think, feel and act. It is our company culture, the “glue” that holds us together and it consists of 6 values:

Boldness

Boldness means to think and act differently, to invent individually or collectively new ways of working or new solutions to answer to our customers’ or colleagues’ needs.

Boldness means daring to propose, invent and act, without taking unconsidered risks. It’s understanding that you can do anything if you are well prepared. So boldness is not rashness, it’s knowing how to do innovative things that are good for the Group.

  • Boldness means daring to think and act differently.
  • Boldness means to innovate.

 “Some say: Why? We say: Why not?”

Openness

Openness requires us to stay alert, to listen actively to our customers and colleagues.


  • Openness means readiness to hear new suggestions, ideas, influences or opinions: open-mindedness, receptiveness…
  • Openness means personal capacity to entertain different and unusual ideas and to adapt one's behavior accordingly.

 “Your point of view counts”

Sustainability

Sustainability is the capacity to endure. In ecology, the word describes how biological systems remain diverse and productive over time. For humans, sustainability is the potential for long-term maintenance of well being, which has environmental, economic, and social dimensions.

  • Sustainability requires from us to think about the long term future for our company, our customers and our colleagues in all our choices and actions while enhancing respect for the environment.
  • Sustainability means to evolve, to adapt, to continue to be better amongst constant new challenges.

 “Our solutions are designed to last longer than us”

Team Spirit

Team spirit is respect and recognition of the others, fostering solidarity and sharing of responsibilities in all our actions. Team spirit affects not only the way people feel but also their pride in their team and the need to succeed together. It is the fuel that allows regular people to attain extra-ordinary results.

  • Team spirit means working together as one to achieve a common goal.
  • Team spirit means inspiring enthusiasm, devotion and a strong regard for the honour of the group.

 “We are stronger together”

Integrity

Integrity means steadfast adherence to a strict moral and ethical code. It means fairness and clarity in conduct, adherence to the facts. It implies an active and conscious respect for the standards of one's profession.

  • Integrity implies tried and proven honesty or truthfulness.
  • Integrity means being incapable of corruption.

 “We believe in doing the right thing”

Keeping our commitment

A commitment is a serious agreement to do something. It means putting the full force of personal integrity behind an action. Keeping commitments, even when difficult, creates positive power.

  • Keeping our commitment means honouring promises, setting goals and being true to them.

 “We deliver what we promise”
