The value of integration
People with diverse cultural backgrounds work and grow within the SOL Group. They have different origins, ages and abilities which bring new and unique points of view. The Group believes in diversity as a resource to be nurtured, because everyone's original contribution promotes agility, creativity and innovation for everyone. The progressive extension of our activities in new countries requires us to pay increasing attention to the national and cultural differences present within the Group companies. The SOL Group’s aim is to promote local resources at all levels of the organisation, giving priority to local managers and assigning control and monitoring tasks to central functions.
