But it demonstrates as well our ambition to be a nice place to work and to offer several possibilities for our employees personal development,” said Grégoire Ast, National HR Director for Valeo North America. “To get this certification, the fourth in a row, we are audited on our talent development processes and well-being at work programs. We walk the talk, let me thank all our teams involved in that achievement.”
