Employee well-being, a priority
As a key element of our CSR policy Passion du Lait®, the well-being of our employees is at the heart of our day-to-day business. Inclusion, ethical conduct, equal pay for men and women and improving health & safety and quality of life at work are an integral part of our human resources policy on well-being at work for everyone and for Laïta's collective performance. Our gender equality index, for example, was 89/100 in 2021, greatly exceeding the legal requirement of 75/100. Our management culture, supported by all our managers, aims to promote both personal development for our employees and collective performance for the company.
Responsibility, simplicity and team spirit
Whatever job we do and whatever position we hold, we all embrace and encourage the same values - responsibility, simplicity and team spirit. Our collective success guarantees the longevity of our company.

Human Resources Director Laïta
People are at the heart of all the inspiring and ambitious projects that we’re constructing together. And so it will continue, with the same determination to reconcile requirement and performance with well-being and cordiality. Excellence and quality of life at work are not a given, they have to be developed through the positions you adopt and initiatives you take on a daily basis. They are structured and organised in particular through a number of staff development activities.
Nathalie Le Denmat
Director of Human Resource Development Laïta
A manager personifies the company values and strategy to provide direction for the team, to guide, encourage and refocus them with respect, never indifference.
Sales Director PGC France
We convey the firm values that Laïta upholds, such as simplicity, accessibility, the cooperative spirit and the satisfaction of evolving as a team, through our employer brand. This is a common thread that runs through all Laïta facilities. We work in synergy to attract the best talent.

Training, a factor for personal and collective development
We support skills development in all our employees by offering a variety of in-house training opportunities and internal promotions. We provide no less than 40,000 hours of training every year, i.e. 3% of the payroll, at all levels, across all our businesses and for all the different occupations. And by offering study packages for professional qualifications in the dairy industry, we can also accommodate newcomers by providing them with the necessary skills and know-how.
Rewarding work-study programmes
A number of work-study placement positions are available every year in different work areas such as production, maintenance, IT, logistics, transportation, quality assurance and even business and marketing. Our trainees are given support and personal supervision by a tutor throughout their time with us. They undertake a variety of projects designed to develop their occupational skills in a pleasant working environment, learn to work independently and develop the know-how to become familiar with the job they’re doing. And there are job openings into the bargain.
Talking about Laïta
Drying tower operator
« What I like about Laïta is the trust they put in me and the autonomy I have. Working 3x8 shifts has its advantages and its drawbacks, but it’s easy to organise yourself because the schedule is set three months in advance. And there’s such a good atmosphere on site and among the team. »
R&D Project Leader
« Every project is different. I interface with customers all over the world, formulating and testing recipes to suit their requirements and holding discussions with different factory departments to set up production. There’s never a dull day! »
Project Leader - digital projects
« My role is to identify the needs of each sector in order to co-construct targeted solutions that meet their expectations. I take a collaborative approach with the staff and departments concerned, who contribute to the design, experimentation and deployment of solutions. »
