The Great People Survey

Lyreco People are the driving force behind all our actions and activities. We commit to offering them a work environment in which they can thrive as well as the best opportunities to grow and evolve. 

We make it a point of honor to listen to our employees and take action to improve their work life. That is why each year we conduct a Great People Survey across the 25 countries we operate in.

Lyreco for education

Supporting equal access to education in the poorest countries

Committing all our employees to devote time to charitable operations is part of Lyreco company culture. Through the “Lyreco For Education” programme, Lyreco employees develop fund raising actions to give children living in poor conditions better access to education.

The objective is to increase school enrolment and reduce the school dropout rate by improving the quality of education and learning conditions.

Funds are mainly raised through various activities and initiatives across our global subsidiaries.
