Accountability, transparency, risk management
To encourage people to be proactive, we believe in a culture of accountability at all levels of the organization. We believe that transparency fosters trust and creates an environment of open and honest communication. We believe that risk management is the key to sustainable performance. The Board of Directors upholds these convictions at Group and country level.
THE 6 PILLARS OF OUR GOVERNANCE
A long-term commitment
from our shareholders
Groupe Maisons de Famille is owned by Creadev, the Evergreen investment company of the family-owned AFM (Association Famille Mulliez). A unique model fueled by a passion for entrepreneurship and a DNA combining action with long-term thinking.
The Group was built on the conquering mindset of its founders, in every country. The spirit of initiative and innovation is at the heart of our corporate culture. This is one of our expectations towards our managers and all our employees.
The real leaders are our retirement home directors. Efficiency stems from decisions taken at the right level, as close to the residents as possible. The right balance between autonomy and control enables us to do this with complete peace of mind.
We capitalize on the solid reputation of our subsidiaries in every country where we operate. Preserving these local corporate cultures has made it easier for our teams to embrace our project.
A team, a project,
Our success is based on these three pillars: a team and an owner, a corporate project and a Board of Directors that fulfills an essential mission of support, with benevolence and the highest standards of expectations.
We consult our internal and external stakeholders on a regular basis, to ensure that we fully understand their expectations. To achieve this, we rely in particular on satisfaction surveys, questionnaires to build risk and opportunity materiality analysis, as well as a constant dialogue with employee representative bodies and in-house consultative bodies.
THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
The Group’s Board of Directors validates the company’s strategic orientations and oversees their implementation, for example: appointing and supporting managers, allocating resources within the framework of the corporate vision and mission, ensuring the proper management of its assets, particularly real estate, and making sure that the company controls thoroughly its risks. Each subsidiary has its own Board of Directors, and enjoys genuine autonomy in adapting to the market in which it operates.
