A place for everyone within the team

Nexeo has a clear organisation and org chart. The roles are defined and communicated to ensure that everyone in the organisation knows what they bring and what others expect of them. We feel this is a prerequisite for our employees’ well-being. For a company where 80% of employees work on customers’ premises, this subject is particularly important.

"I was immediately attracted by the overall ambience of well-being at Nexeo and how approachable the directors are. The firm really puts trust in its consultants, you can see this from the strong onboarding right from the very start and how needs are regularly monitored

—Ange K., Nexeo Finance Consultant.
