Our people and culture

Strong people result in strong companies. We are aware of the impact we have as an employer on our employees’ lives, not just by offering opportunities for a stable income and personal and professional growth, but also through the work environment we create. Caring for our employees is a key element of our social responsibility efforts.

A constant dialogue with our teammates

Etex values the feedback of teammates, mainly through the biennial ‘Me & Etex’ employee engagement survey which we launched in 2018.

On 15 October 2021, we have closed our latest Me & Etex engagement survey with an outstanding participation rate of 84% across the organisation (vs 69% for the previous survey).

The actions resulting from the engagement survey feedback help us improve Etex's work environment in line with the ideas, priorities, and challenges of our teammates.

The Etex Awards

A celebrated element of our employee engagement activities is our Etex Awards programme to acknowledge outstanding performance, which features three levels of recognition. Every teammate is eligible for nomination. The criteria to be nominated for an Etex Award are closely linked to the three Etex values, Passion for Excellence, Connect and Care and Pioneer to Lead.

Teammate story

The Etex CEO Award, celebrating game-changing contributions

The prestigious Etex CEO Award is given once a year to a teammate or team that has delivered game-changing results or breakthroughs with large positive impacts on one of our strategic domains or functional roadmaps.

In May 2021, the winner of the 2020 Etex CEO Award was disclosed during a special live digital event that all teammates were invited to attend. P&C Business Development Manager for DACHEE-SEE Dana Haiduc was honoured. She delivered significant profitable growth in a dynamic market through innovation, facilitated an increase in our Siniat product line-up, increased the distribution channels for Siniat products and helped create an acquisition and retention plan for key professional appliers.

I was grateful and honored to receive the Etex CEO Award, and I felt happy seeing my teammates’ joy. With the project, we aimed to grow our plasters and compounds business in a profitable way, and we succeeded by creating a new business model. This recognition shows me that to be involved, to work with passion, and to act as an owner at one’s level, no matter which level that is, has meaning here at Etex."
