Fit for the future

Our company has evolved – from a leading chemicals company we have become a global science-based company active in health, nutrition and materials. DSM’s company culture is evolving too.

ONE DSM Culture Agenda

The ONE DSM Culture Agenda was designed in 2012 in conjunction with DSM’s Leadership Model and aims to support the company’s strategic alignment with the needs of an ever-changing world by focusing on four themes: External Orientation; Accountability for Performance (and learning); Collaboration with Speed and Trust; and Inclusion & Diversity. This focus seeks to create a common language across the organization, and enhance ONE DSM. Through its implementation, DSM aims to become a high-performance organization.

Four key themes

The ONE DSM Culture Agenda emphasizes that employees are bound together by the behaviors fostered by its four themes. The four themes are the glue that connects the organization into ONE DSM.

Progress in 2015

Building on the progress made since its introduction, in 2015, the emphasis was on the need for line managers to visibly role model and champion behaviors in support of the four themes. This is particularly important with a view to DSM's new operating model. Successful implementation and adoption of these themes and behaviors will be instrumental to achieving the company's strategic goals.
