Shaping the Future of Work

Supporting tomorrow's talent

Work for future generations will be very different from the forms it takes today – with new skills required to make best use of emerging technologies and other breakthroughs. 



From Artificial Intelligence (AI) enabled databases to virtual meetings, the ‘new normal’ will enable our colleagues in new ways, so we are investing in a range of ‘upskilling’ initiatives to ensure we are becoming more and more digitally dexterous in the future.

Building on the World Business Council for Sustainable Development’s Future of Work Principles, which we have contributed to define, our Future of Work project follows a two pronged-approach: a focus on our customers’ expectations and a commitment to the upskilling and reskilling of our colleagues to impact their employability.

Supporting young people

Businesses have an unprecedented opportunity to develop and draw from the largest pool of talent and human capital that has ever been available. As a responsible company, we decided in 2019 to join forces with 20 multinational companies in the Global Alliance for Youth, a business-driven movement committed to helping  young people around the world to build the necessary adequate skills to thrive in the world of work, today and tomorrow.



Firmenich is also on the global management board of the Global Apprenticeship Network (GAN), a worldwide coalition of leading companies committed to promoting work-based learning programmes for young people, by collaborating with governments.
