Helping Everyone Belong

We welcome the differences that make you unique. Physical, cultural, lifestyle and workstyle diversity all make Firmenich teams creative powerhouses – ready and able to meet the needs of customers worldwide. 


Recognizing our ever more inclusive culture, we have been an EDGE certified Gender Equality Employer since 2018 and the first company in the world to successfully upgrade to the next level: “Move” status in 2021. As we keep on moving forward, we are going beyond gender, embracing the power of inclusion of minority groups and securing effective representation and engagement of people with different abilities, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds as well as, sexual orientation.
