THE BUSINESS

A growing business above all reflects a fine collective achievement. Far from being just a slogan,
this is something my own experience has often confirmed: an initiative will fully succeed only if each actor involved has committed to it with genuine team spirit. This is a reminder and an encouragement that I would like to share with all those who make Legrand the fine company it is and who ensure it has such a promising future.

 

LEGRAND'S CORE VALUES

To me, the values our Group conveys are a precious asset. They reflect not just the outlook of our Management but a faithful summary of the contributions spontaneously voiced by many participants at in-house round-table meetings organised on this topic. In fact you could say they enshrine the company's DNA :

- An ethical business approach evidenced both in our employees' everyday relationships with each other and in their transactions with customers and suppliers.

- A firm commitment to deliver what we have promised, and honesty and straightforwardness in our dealings, enhancing our listening ability,

- A permanent concern to make the best possible use of the skills of the people who are our most precious resource, plus of course careful attention to handling material resources in a way that avoids waste,  thereby enabling us to achieve the Group's Sustainability commitments.

- An innovation approach that nourishes every component of our company, in R&D of course but also in our organisational structures.

Legrand Group values

 

BUSINESS VISION

I see our Group as comprised of a multitude of entrepreneurs, all devoting their energy to serving a dual ambition:
expanding the Group in a business in which we take pride and which defines our identity, while ensuring the human development of all those who work there.
Each of us, at every level of the company, contributes to our overall efficiency and adaptability.

 

CORPORATE SPONSORSHIP

Like any business once it has reached a certain scale, Legrand is regularly asked to contribute to a variety of sponsorship initiatives. We consider it essential not to scatter our efforts but to commit to partnerships which are consistent with our core business.This is why we have chosen to work with Electriciens sans frontières (ESF), a non-governmental organisation that plays a very practical role in providing emergency aid to restore electrical power to disaster areas and also provides support and training to help promote access to power in poorly equipped countries.

Experience shows that electricity is often the first building block on the way to development in such deprived areas, as without it, few other initiatives can succeed. We also like to think ESF is an organisation that works in the same way as we do: quickly, simply, practically, and always keeping very busy!
