From past generations, FM Logistic has inherited a culture, values and high standards in terms of day-to-day behaviours within the company. Promoting these values among the motivated men and women in the company contributes to a high company performance, by creating a better working atmosphere and developing pride and a sense of belonging to a group. Nurturing these values also means demanding high standards.
The attitudes and behaviour of managers and staff are shaped by respectful relationships.
Our company culture is based on strong unifying values :
Our managerial behaviours impact on the durability of our values and the performance of the business:
Encouraging a participative approach to move forward together
In 2015, all staff were asked to answer 3 questions with a view to adapting the values defined in 2007 to the Group's new multi-cultural dimension : "What are your personal values ? What values do you see in the company ? What values do you think are necessary for FM Logistic to be even more successful in the future ?". The operation was a hit with a 74 % participation rate. It highlighted the commitment of FM Logistic staff in all countries. With 11,000 responses, the project team was able to hold 35 quality discussion groups involving 250 people from operators to executive committee members. The objective was to finalise the values that would support FM Logistic's strategy and enable continued growth. Following implementation in the autumn of 2016, the objective now is to bring the values to life within the Group so that they become a differentiating, high-performance tool.
Our company culture is based on 3 values for working and succeeding together
Every member of staff is important and deserves respect, consideration and kindness. With trust, people can give the best of themselves, find new energy and work cooperatively and autonomously. Trust is the basis of sustainable relations within a company, with customers and partners. It is given by principle and grows over time.
The company’s long-term ambition is based on sustainable customer satisfaction and the achievement of high-standard results. This performance is attained through the pursuit of quality, security and continuous improvement on a daily basis. Our staff members are the key to this performance through their excellence, their collective commitment and their sense of responsibility.
In an ever changing world, the company has to constantly reinvent itself and innovate in order to provide its customers with the best services. Being open makes it possible to call existing procedures into question, by listening to all parties involved. It creates win-win relationships in a spirit of partnership and it allows employees to show initiative and creativity.
These soft skills come from the company's history of wanting to maintain its independence and develop its performance, to ensure its future through the motivated and committed men and women.
Giving meaning to what we do, doing what we say we'll do, creating a positive working atmosphere : Important attitudes that develop a sense of pride and belonging.
Nurturing these values also means demanding high standards.
The attitudes and behaviour of managers and staff are shaped by respectful relationships. The FM spirit found on each of our sites, and our ethics charter, illustrate the personality of our company.
For all of these reasons we are deeply attached to our soft skills.
Our challenge is to keep our Values, our Culture and our ethics while developing internationally.
