Our culture driven by common values

Our highly international environment asks for a diversity of talents across the globe. Diversity is our strength and we foster it through international teams that work together on challenging assignments to deliver creative solutions for our customers. Respect and Integrity are our key cornerstones towards customers, colleagues and communities.

However, to make our business model successful, all Vesuvius people around the world share common values. In addition our culture can be characterised as international, transparent, open and informal.


CORE: Courage – Ownership – Respect – Energy

To cultivate and recognise our culture we have an annual Values Awards celebration.
Each employee can nominate another employee or team to recognise exemplary working behaviour in line with our values.
The Award Celebration brings together employees from all geographies of our business to celebrate our values.
