Our culture is built on 4 values that serve our clients

We share a unique, common culture to work together to the best of our abilities, to serve our clients te best we can and make a difference on the markets where we operate. Our culture focuses on 4 values that guide our behaviour.

TEAM SPIRIT

We work with our clients as we work with each other: we listen, co-construct, value other's contributions, trust and encourage solidarity during both the successful and the difficult times.

RESPONSIBILITY

We express our responsibility through the courage to take ownership of our actions and to transparently express our opinions. To us, the way of achieving results are just as important as the results.

INNOVATION

True to our entrepreneurial spirit, we transform our ways of working, and innovate through a culture of sharing, experimentation and disruptive thinking. We learn from both our achievements and our failures.

COMMITMENT

We promote the involvement and the professional achievements of all our members of staff. We build relationships based on trust and mutual respect, both inside and outside of the company.

Candidates who share these fundamental values will easily fit in well at Societe Generale, just like players in a rugby team. Societe Generale has supported the sport for over 30 years
