Sika’s values are at the heart of its corporate culture. Customer First and Sustainability & Integrity form part of these values, as do Empowerment and Respect. They are a cornerstone of Strategy 2023. That these values are lived out each and every day can be seen in the high level of employee engagement and team cooperation. The unique Sika Spirit allows staff from the firms that have been acquired to integrate rapidly into the Group. And Sika’s values are similarly reflected in the voluntary work carried out by its staff, which serves to strengthen ties at the local level, reinforce trust, and promote sustainability around the globe. This commitment is continuing to grow. As part of the community engagement program, Sika aims to increase the voluntary work done by its employees to 10,000 working days per year, thereby reaching 50% more people by 2023.
