Symrise is a global company. As such, intercultural diversity is not only desirable, but necessary
for understanding the various local markets. One way to facilitate this diversity is by
bringing together employees from different backgrounds and allowing them to share their experiences
and knowledge in a team setting, while learning from the others. The Day of Cultural Diversity at Symrise
in the USA is another avenue for promoting this kind of cooperation while enhancing understanding for
other cultures. All six sites participated, with roughly 140 employees from more than 20 nations exchanging information with their colleagues on the customs, cuisine and traditions of their native countries or
those of their ancestors. A high level of cultural diversity is also present at our Holzminden headquarters,
where employees from 32 different nations work together.
