“We do not motivate people through speeches but by respecting their deep aspirations.” More than 50 years later, this statement by Antoine Riboud, then CEO of Danone, still holds true… Indeed, while corporate purposes are multiplying in French companies, the individual purpose of employees is too often neglected: nearly half of them (49%) even feel compelled to act against their values (IFOP study).

So, how can we achieve a balance between the individual purpose of employees and that of the company? How can we place the employee at the center of the project to give them reasons “to be”? Finally, what leadership vision should be adopted to encourage, motivate, and retain talents?

We will discuss this with:

Martine Grazioso, General Manager, Valrhona
