Welcome to Idhéa

Welcome to the team!

At Idhéa, each new employee takes part in an on-boarding programme, which takes place every month and lasts one to two weeks. The new employee roadmap includes:

  • Welcome by the HR Department, who gives each employee a copy of the Welcome Booklet and finalises any administrative details;
  • Introductory meeting with the Managing Director, each Department Manager and the CSE [Social and Economic Works Council];
  • A tour of the production site.

Each new employee is also asked to sign the Migros Group Code of Conduct, which sets out the eleven basic standards of behaviour that apply to every employee of a Migros Group company. These can be summarised in one sentence: “We do not seek profit at any price, but want to achieve our goals by acting responsibly and lawfully”.

Career prospects at Idhéa

We are very proud to have employees with more than 30 years’ service! Our people are our company’s greatest asset. At Idhéa, everyone is given the opportunity to progress by taking on more responsibility or moving between departments to broaden their expertise and personal skills.

Here are some employee testimonials that illustrate our approach:

Olivier, Purchasing, Procurement & Scheduling Manager

“I joined La Case aux Épices on a one-month temporary contract as a night-time Packaging Operator at the age of 19, in January 1993. Then I was a forklift operator in Production for 6 months. In July 1993, I was taken on permanently as an order picker. A year later, I was promoted to Reception and Warehouse Manager. In 1998, I moved into Purchasing. My main task was to manage the stock of raw materials and place orders with our suppliers. In April 2001, I took over the position of Purchasing Manager when it was left vacant by my predecessor. Since May 2019, I have also been in charge of the Procurement and Scheduling Departments. I am lucky to have been able to grow and progress in a company that is constantly developing, by continuously adapting to changes in my environment…”

Özge, Line Operator

Marine, Junior Product Manager, Marketing Department

“I joined the Marketing Department as a trainee in November 2020. At that time, it was still a small team. I was involved in NPD (New Product Development) project management for small, one-off projects and organising trade fairs. Gradually, I was able to work on more strategic projects, such as the relaunch of the Saveurs & Sauces brand, for example. I really enjoyed that. In the meantime, the structure of the department has evolved and now there are more needs to meet and projects to deliver. Idhéa offered me a permanent contract as Junior Product Manager for the catering products portfolio. I joined the team permanently in September 2022 and I’m delighted!”

A few words from the General Manager

A few words from the inside…

Our Managing Director is very fond of two expressions, which you are likely to hear regularly. Entirely consistent with our values (add a link), they give you a good idea of what we expect from our employees:

“Everyone has the right to make a mistake.”

At Idhéa, it is important to get involved and take action, to take risks and make progress every day. Mistakes are part of gaining experience and that’s how we learn. We appreciate employees who take the initiative, even if they make mistakes.

“You have to get it right first time!”

No, this is not the opposite of the right to make mistakes! Doing it right first time simply means asking the right questions from the start, making the right decisions, and implementing actions in the best possible way. Id(h)eally the first time!
