Our 65,500 employees are committed all over the world, in the 22 countries where we are established, for our residents and patients, in our facilities or at home. Whatever their profession, they all share the same values of professionalism, kindness, loyalty and humility. Every day, these values are brought to life in the service of the fragile and vulnerable people entrusted to their care. The Group’s active Human Resources policy, supported by a local management team, ensures that its teams are supported, assisted and developed throughout the world.

For Yves Le Masne, Chief Executive Officer of ORPEA:  «Equality between women and men is a permanent requirement for the company.
Women bring a perspective which is complementary to that of men. In a professional service role involving human relations, which is actually an area in which more than 80% of employees are women, as well as the majority of residents and parents, women often bring a kind of sensitivity and an original approach to the different stakeholders.
We believe in inclusive management and collective intelligence. It is important for us to ensure a diversity of thought that can be brought about by different paths in life and different backgrounds. That is what true wealth is, that which allows us all to complement each other and go further.»
