We commit to

  • Offering our employees an ever-improving quality of life at work as well as taking care of the communities we operate in
  • Supporting Lyreco employee development and to giving them more than a job; a career at Lyreco

  • Providing a safe and empowering work environment for all our employees  

  • Fostering positive social impacts for the communities of the countries we operate in and to supporting education thanks to our global "Lyreco for Education" program 

Exposing talents to internal mobility, prioritising learning & development, creating a Lyreco academy, contributing to safe jobs, funding sustainable programs, and encouraging our employees to get involved in local communities are just some examples of how we are supporting our employees and communities around the world.

The Great People Survey

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

We go out of our way to listen to our employees and take action to improve their worklife. That is why each year we conduct a Great People Survey across all 25 countries we operate in.

Going forward

Lyreco Pioneers has become a landmark moment in the Lyreco calendar, giving employees an opportunity to get involved in the creation of new solutions for our most important challenges.

Lyreco Innovation will continue to work closely with Sustainability to support and enable innovations in this vital, business critical area.


Lyreco for education

Supporting equal access to education

Through the Lyreco For Education programme, our 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 predominantly raised through charitable activities and initiatives across our global subsidiaries.
