Growth & Recognition
Supporting continuous team member development is vital to delivering superior service to customers and consumers. At the same time, we strive to be a great place to work where team members enjoy job satisfaction and career advancement. A blended development approach has proven successful at BIC and we encourage all team members to build a development plan using the 70/20/10 model; 70% learning from experience, 20% learning from others, and 10% learning from training. With your manager, you will create a plan that focuses on your needs. Using this plan, you and your manager will have continuous feedback touchpoints throughout the year to recognize accomplishments and level-set expectations to ensure your success.
We also encourage our team members to step out of their comfort zones and embrace individual and organizational changes through on-the-job learning opportunities and classes provided by our internal learning platform, BIC University, which offers training opportunities designed to help team members enhance their skills, achieve their goals and prepare them for future opportunites.
Diversity & Inclusion
We strive to hire team members with different backgrounds and experiences to help us build better products, make better decisions and better serve our customers. We are committed to creating a workplace where everyone can be their best, most authentic selves. We believe that we are better together and it is in that spirit that we created our credo for diversity and inclusion:
-Diversity at BIC is the blending of different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives within a team, to bring the benefit of diverse viewpoints which will make our organization stronger and better prepared for the challenges ahead.
-Inclusion is the support for a collaborative environment that values open participation from individuals with different ideas and perspectives that has a positive impact on business.
-Leadership in our organization is transparent, communicative, and engaging. We seek to proactively build an inclusive environment where all can unlock their full potential.
When it comes to health, wellness, and flexibility, everyone has different needs. Through company-sponsored benefit programs, we've got you covered! We offer our team members the resources needed to make informed healthcare decisions, live healthy lives, and thrive at work and at home.
Our commitment to well-being supports team members with competitive, location specific total rewards packages, safe workplaces, and well-being programs. We provide a safe and healthy workplace that supports team members and their families' ability to maintain and improve physical, emotional, and financial aspects of their health.
Our corporate social responsiblity programs inspire and engage team members by providing a platform to make a meaningful difference in the communities in which we live, work and serve. For many years, we have backed a wide range of educational initiatives all over the world. The BIC Corporate Foundation supports education in every sense of the word, with the goal of “give to create.” Never limited to merely providing aid, our actions seek to make the beneficiaries stronger, more versatile and more self-reliant. By developing their skills and sharing methods, we show them a path forward: their own. Learning how to learn and to take control of one’s future is the principle upheld by all the organizations we work with.
Our comprehensive Sustainable Development program reflects our commitment towards the environmental, social and societal impacts of our products and operations. Our ambition is to ensure that we limit our impact on the planet and make a meaningful contribution to the lives of the people we employ and society in the long term, simply because it is the right thing to do. Our "Writing the Future, Together "Program, created in 2018, reflects our vision by 2025 and beyond.
In addition, we have integrated circular economy in our approach on Product & Packaging, supported by our 4R philosophy (Reduced, Recycled and alternative, Refillability, Recyclable). On our journey to circularity, we have also developed meaningful partnerships from Terracycle since 2011 to Ubicuity, Biospeed, Loop or the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
