Values and culture: The Backbone of our Business

At Pernod Ricard UK, we are committed to fostering a participative style of management and rely on teams led by talented managers with strong leadership skills who inspire and motivate people. Emphasis is also placed on providing a fulfilling role for employees, enabling them to develop their careers and rewarding them fairly.

Three core values create the backbone of our business:

  1. Entrepreneurial spirit: Managers are rewarded for their leadership, as well as their ability to embrace responsibility and take measured risks
  2. Mutual trust: Each level of management empowers its direct reports. Employees can then, in turn, trust their managers to support their initiatives and share responsibility with them
  3. A strong sense of ethics: All employees are expected to have a strong sense of ethics and work in a way that encourages transparency and respect

Our convivial style of working, which embraces openness, sharing, sociability and the fostering of friendships, uniquely defines our business. Integrity is also important to Pernod Ricard UK, which is why we fully accept responsibility for our role in marketing our brands appropriately.
