Personnel, key players in the sustainable development policy
Jaeger-LeCoultre is aware that implementing an effective policy of sustainable development involves ensuring all its employees agree with the principles it advocates. The Brand has understood that it is necessary to inform them, to heighten their awareness and to involve them in reducing its ecological footprint by inciting them to act in a responsible manner on a day-to-day basis. Staff members of the Manufacture play an essential role and all are encouraged to suggest new initiatives in this field. This approach is facilitated by the presence of around 60 voluntary “eco-agents” spread between the various company departments. Acting as genuine ambassadors of eco-responsibility, their role is to encourage their colleagues to perform daily environment-friendly actions (sorting rubbish, joining carpooling schemes, controlling paper and energy consumption) and to pass on their suggestions to the management. Thanks to the help and cooperation of all its employees who are now sensitive to the need for eco-gestures and to the issues involved in sustainable development, Jaeger-LeCoultre is making its policy of social and environmental responsibility ever more effective.
Human resources, the beating heart of the company
Because team spirit and motivation are fundamental in moving forward, Jaeger-LeCoultre does all in its power to share a certain number of values with its personnel with a view to constantly improving working conditions.
Representing the very foundations of the corporate culture, Jaeger-LeCoultre values have been identified within the framework of a full-fledged and carefully established project in which staff members were strongly involved. These core values are conveyed through a charter that has been circulated to all the personnel.
To ensure that everyone adopts these values, they have been interpreted as daily actions in both professional and extra-professional contexts. These include quarterly meetings between the management and personnel to facilitate transparency; the TicTac corporate magazine and the Jaeger-LeCoultre Première news channel screened in the various recreation and refreshment areas to ensure in-house communication; mentoring of new staff members and the many sporting, cultural and family activities organised in order to facilitate integration and weave ties between personnel;as well as the free bus routes enabling employees to arrive at work more rested and to reduce traffic in the Vallée de Joux.
