Suggestion Box

Genencor has sought its workers' input in these areas and in return has received remarkable loyalty and commitment.

  1. Environment
    Genencor employees helped design their headquarters, from labs that get a lot of natural light to a "main street" where workers congregate and collaborate.
  2. Camaraderie
    Weekly cocktail parties, each with a different theme, as well as numerous clubs, help employees from different departments get to know one another.
  3. Wellness/Fitness
    During the day, employees can take part in yoga or aerobics classes at the office, or participate in Genencor sports teams after hours.
  4. Lifestyle
    On-site programs such as photo processing, travel support, dry cleaning, and oil changes keep employees from running time-consuming errands during work.
