Our values are focused on collective interests. They have been the foundation of the group for more than 50 years and are fully integrated in the strategic plan. Defining our values and translating them into social uses and standards as well as their practical implementation was the result of a collaborative effort begun in 2009 in a comprehensive approach called "group culture".

"Values exist only if they are lived and shared.”
"For 53 years, Up group has built its story based on what we have always believed, the source of our strength: our values. With 3 396 employees, sustained growth, and a presence in 17 countries, it is important for us to all have the same benchmarks. That is why we decided to organize workshops in each country. The aim of these workshops is to enable each one of us to own the values of the Group, values which will only exist if they are lived and shared everywhere and by everyone.
Deployment began in France, Poland, Morocco and Spain, and will continue in the coming months in other countries to enable all our employees to express themselves on our values through real-life everyday situations, thereby strengthening our common culture. The material collected through these workshops will be recapped and shared at the end of the deployment process.”
