Labor Relations

We work closely together with our social partners to develop our Human Resources policies.


Labor relations

  • The frequency and quality of the Company’s labor relations are important assets for:
    • building employee competencies to adapt to a changing environment (technologies, methods, markets,…)
    • fostering innovation,
    • attracting and retaining talented employees,
    • engaging and motivating employees and encouraging team spirit within the Company.
  • Social partners contribute to:
    • informing the general management of employees’ needs, satisfactions, difficulties and questions,
    • helping employees understand the technical, competitive and economic challenges that the company is facing and the decisions that are made to address them.
  • This close collaboration enriches projects on subjects that are important for bioMérieux’s relationship with its employees and for the future of the Group:
    • agreements on the job category, compensation and skills development of employees,
    • advice from Works Councils on essential subjects such as the evolution of the organization and the implementation of agreements,
    • proposals and monitoring of hygiene, safety and working conditions by the Committee for health, safety and working conditions (CHSCT),
    • answers to individual or group requests presented by employee representatives.

Works Council meetings

The European Works Council meets twice a year.

  • Works Councils within the company are informed and consulted on a variety of issues:
    • company agreements,
    • training,
    • organizational changes,
    • financial results,
    • R&D strategy,
    • manufacturing long-range planning,
    • mid- and long-term development of the Company,
    • corporate H.R. reporting,
    • Health, Safety and Environment, etc.

Freedom of association

The freedom of association is a fundamental right that bioMérieux respects in all of its companies.
