Our HR Policy

From recruitment through to career management, we set great store by our workforce, which holds the real key to the success of SUPER DIET Laboratories. Right at the heart of the company’s strategy, our HR policy is based on training, boosting expertise, developing and involving our 200 partners. We give everyone the opportunities to succeed, including our trainees and new employees. They are given considerable independence, responsibilities and every opportunity for career development.

Our HR policy is based on two key strategies:

The development of expertise

We want to develop and improve the expertise of our workforce.
To ensure success, we devise a training plan to suit the potential of every individual employee. Every year, true to our word, we spend three times our legal requirement on staff training.
We are channelling our talents into our company university, VIVAC.
VIVAC, a Business School, allows employees within the URGO group to follow a high level of training in order to develop their professional expertise throughout their careers. Training is given by the managers of various group entities.

Career management

SUPER DIET LABORATORIES is also a company that listens to the needs and wishes of its employees, promoting their potential for career development at the same time. Whether at department or laboratory level or within the URGO group itself, we make every effort to satisfy the desire for progression amongst our talented workforce.
Each time a new opportunity arises, we endeavour to promote from within, whenever possible.

Beyond our group, there are also numerous opportunities for career progression among the various companies within the URGO group.

We have a strong desire to retain our talent and potential within the group. The numerous examples of successful internal promotions between the various companies provide living proof and encourage us to continue in this direction.


Internal promotions

“Careers are not set in stone at SUPER DIET. I started off as a trainee and I had the opportunity to progress.

Céline Naveau (27 years old), Head of Product Ranges.

Promotion within the group

“I joined SUPER DIET as a trainee production engineer. After a 6-month training period, I was offered the post of Logistics Manager at just 23 years of age! After 2 years in post, the group gave me an opportunity to go to Thailand and manage the logistics site in Bangkok. The experience was incredible”. Julien Sainte-Croix (25 years old), Head of the Supply Chain Project – URGO Thailand

"After 7 years at Juva Santé Laboratories as Sector Manager, I had an opportunity to switch between groups within SUPER DIET Laboratories. Today, I am Head of Regional Sales and manage 6 commercial assistants!” Sandrine Foucault (32 years old), Head of Regional Sales – SUPER DIET Laboratories
