Cromology the art of professional painting


Three Minutes to Understand

Human Resources

Our employees are the lifeblood of Cromology’s collective performance and play a key role in our sustainable growth.

Almost 300 women and men join our workforce every year.

Our aim is to create conditions that foster day-to-day employee engagement, to help individuals achieve their full potential and strive to deliver higher quality for all of our customers, whether they are professional painters, private consumers, independent & DIY distributors, architects, or private & public builders.

Cromology ensures the professional development of every employee, from training and career management to evaluation and succession planning. In 2014, every employee was given an average of 16 hours of training. The group is also committed to understanding employee expectations and evaluating wellbeing, with particular reference to our regular Great Place to Work® survey. More than 85% of our employees took part in the latest survey.

« In our industry, excellence in terms of product, distribution and client relationships is key. Employees who approach their work with enthusiasm, understand the company’s ambitions and what is expected of them in order to achieve those aims are committed and successful employees. That allows us to fully satisfy our customers! »
Philippe Ronphé, Cromology’s Human Resources Director


Our 3900 employees play a key role in our sustainable growth.
