We value passion, creativity, expertise and empowerment. By living these values each day, we nurture a culture in which everyone can perform at their best. In 2016, we conducted an employee satisfaction survey to assess nine valuable aspects of our culture: agility, collaboration, direction, discipline, engagement, performance, risk, trust and innovation. We found a variety of strengths, including a passionate and supportive, team-based workplace; a focus on innovating for customers; clear direction and guidance on employees’ role in achieving our priorities; and quality products. We've created a global task force to address how to leverage IFF's strengths and address areas for improvement going forward.
