We commit to offering our employees a continuously better quality of life at work as well as taking care of the communities we operate in:  

  • We commit to support Lyreco employee’s development and to provide more than a job, but a career at Lyreco.  

  • We aim to provide a safe and empowering working life for all our employees  

  • We take action to make a positive impact on the communities of the countries we operate in and to support education thanks to our global” Lyreco for Education” program 

Exposing talents to internal mobility, putting a priority on learning & development, by creating a Lyreco academy, contributing to safe jobs, funding sustainable programs, and encouraging our employees to get involved in our local communities are some examples of how we go from words to action.

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 all around the 25 countries we operate in. 


In 2026, our goal is to reach 90% of employees that are proud to work for Lyreco. 


Providing a safe workplace

Our main focus when it comes to our people is their safety. We make sure the work environment of all Lyreco employees corresponds to well-being and safety criteria that are expected from a responsible employer.
