Louis Dreyfus Company’s (LDC) success in Australia is driven by the same set of corporate values that have guided the Group since its creation in 1851:
We consider it essential for new recruits to make these values their own, whatever their position or function is.
LDC Australia offers a wide range of career opportunities for motivated professionals who are keen to use their skills in a rewarding and challenging environment:
In Australia, and indeed all around the world, the backbone of an effective workforce that supports business needs is a strong performance and leadership management process. Our leadership model requires that leaders demonstrate their skills and abilities in two areas: leading business and leading people. Our global, standardized performance management program that facilitates the reward and growth of our staff is also an important tool used within LDC Australia.
One of the challenges of a successful organization is to effectively attract and retain the best people. While we seek candidates for our Australian activities externally, as needed and on a case-by-case basis, our preferred approach is to motivate and reward high performing employees beyond just compensation, through internal promotion in their professional areas, lateral growth and international mobility.
An effective talent management program speeds up value creation in key positions. It is the process and mindset by which we identify high potential employees and invest in their accelerated development, with the ultimate goal of retaining them and positively impacting business results.
LDC Australia promotes ongoing learning - both formal and informal - throughout an employee’s career. Training and development schemes are adapted to the specificities of our Australian business. We also benefit from global best practice and corporate programs managed by our HR department.
