Boortmalt, a multinational owned by the French cooperative AXEREAL, the French cooperative TEREOS and the investment funds TEMASEK and UNIGRAINS, is a rapidly growing company that grew in the past 92 years from a local company to a world player. With over 27 production facilities worldwide, Boortmalt is one of the largest malting producers in the world.
Although employment rules may vary from region to region, creating the flexibility to adapt to different expectations, cultures, lifestyles whilst in the meantime building the Boortmalt community, that’s the challenge we want to win .
With small teams spread over our 27 production sites globally, building a community to allow people working together despite the geographical distance between them is a daily challenge.
Our newsletter allows us to share news about Boortmalt’s business and people development. Our intranet strengthens the interactions between our people and will give them an even stronger feeling of being part of the Boortmalt community.
Improving the experience at work
At Boortmalt we believe that safety is a top priority. Ensuring people to come to work and return back home safely is a constant focus for our HSE team across all our geographies.
Being able to make people feel more secure from life’s uncertainties is also a major attention area that we are developing: e.g. retirement saving plan, medical coverage, death benefits, health occupational service.
We strive to make our people enjoy working for Boortmalt, to enjoy doing their job to the best of their ability with passion and commitment. By listening to our people we can help them to overcome challenges and to even go beyond their expectations. Our "enjoy" program is taking care of that and a set of exciting initiatives are already making things better (Home working policy, holiday program, bonus).
Ensuring our people feel valued, by giving them rewards and recognition, when deserved is a very sensitive and important subject we are now working on. Our company wide profit sharing scheme available in every location gives us the opportunity to share our business success with our employees who made the success happen.
Last year, over half of our employees attended a training course across a variety of topics. We give the opportunity to every single employee to express their training needs and in doing so gave them the opportunity to really take control of their career and professional development.
We also publish internally the list of free/vacant positions on a weekly basis. This gives every employee the opportunity to play a more active role in choosing their own career and personal development.
Given our international organization, mobility of our people is a key requirement for career development within our group. We offer attractive relocation packages which may include cross cultural training, housing assistance, moving assistance and school search.
