BRUSSELS, BELGIUM: Solvay SA said that it has established the Solvay Global Forum as a permanent body, further enhancing constructive social dialogue as an important lever for the group’s economic performance.

The Solvay Global Forum in 2015 informally set out to foster internal social dialogue between the eight representatives of Solvay’s 30,000 employees and Solvay’s top management. Its members include four from the European Works Council Secretariat and four from the US, Brazil, China and Korea.

Solvay greatly values global social dialogue, internally through bodies like the Solvay Global Forum and externally with IndustriALL, as a driver for the group’s performance overall. Direct communication on group decisions and what matters on our 160 sites is part of Solvay’s successful transformation,” said Jean-Pierre Clamadieu, CEO of Solvay.

"After three productive try-out years, the Solvay Global Forum is now proudly established within Solvay. Our global dialogue with top management benefits employees as well as the group as a whole," added Albert Kruft, coordinator of the Solvay Global Forum.
