PVM has a supportive and empowering culture that lets employees make a real difference
Performance Management Process
Our performance management system for everyone from the CEO down to newly hired trainees
Training and development opportunities
- Most of our companies offer opportunities tailored to suit each employee's developmental needs
- Our academic training is always linked to on-the-job learning so our employees get the best of both worlds!
We offer our people the opportunity to meet their colleagues from our global network to share ideas, best practice and projects. In 2016, 30 marketing colleagues from all over the world gathered in Amsterdam for an immersive digital marketing experience. See what they got up to in the video below:
Share your voice
We actively measure our employees’ engagement through a biennial Engagement Survey. A staggering 97% of our people participated in 2015, and results showed that 84% of Perfetti Van Melle employees are sustainably engaged with our company.
In order to shape our organisation and boost the development of our professionals, Perfetti Van Melle strongly believes in working with cross-functional and multi-market teams on actual business challenges. Aimed at improving coordination and integration, these Masterclasses, such as the 3-day Media & Communication course held in 2015, also increase motivation and present an opportunity for self-development.
