Human Resources

The mission of Human Resources is to make sure that the Group has the people it needs to grow and to offer its employees fulfilling career possibilities.


In this framework, Human Resources professionals, in close cooperation with operations managers, define and implement principles and processes in line with the Group’s decentralized management organization.

This decentralized organization fosters responsibility among teams and allows to attract the best candidates, both to support organic growth and to deploy new activities.

In Human Resources, Imerys has organized its sustainable development strategy along four main lines:

  • Training: promote training as a booster to motivate managers, to foster communication and network and to provide development opportunities for all employees. The Group seeks to ensure that divisions implement training plans and encourage operations managers to roll out new actions, particularly on safety, for the least skilled employees.
  • Benefits: continue to analyze the benefits we provide and implement new plans, particularly in life / disability / health insurance, wherever necessary.
  • Industrial relations: foster positive relations with employee representation bodies and trade unions.
  • Diversity: encourage the recruitment and career development of profiles from varied backgrounds throughout our organization.

We are committed to complying with legislation in force in the countries where we operate, particularly in terms of health and safety, non-discrimination, privacy, child labor, compensation and working hours.

Health & Safety

Mining and mineral processing activities demand a strong safety culture if accidents are to be avoided as well as a strict management of workplace health issues.


Taking into consideration the expectations of our industrial sites’ neighboring communities is crucial to our business’s long-term future.


Imerys supports human rights as defined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and requires that they are respected in its operations worldwide.
