Purpose-driven culture with growth mindset

Values & culture

Kemira was founded more than 100 years ago in Finland, a place where equality and integrity are part of the cultural DNA. Even though our company has grown into a global organization, these Kemira values have made a lasting imprint on us. Here, everyone has a voice. We are a flat organization where trust and respect for one another run deep.

Kemira is also a place where people are encouraged to develop and grow ─ on the job and within the company. With thousands of scientists, engineers and other professionals a culture of learning and experimenting comes naturally. Our curiosity about the world around us, and commitment to finding solutions inspires us to do better every day.

For many of us, achieving our personal best means having flexibility and trust. Kemira offers a hybrid work model that gives many people the opportunity to work some time remotely and some time at the office for a more balanced lifestyle.
