The Korian group’s mission is to provide temporary or long-term care and support for those who need assistance due to their age or health.
Since our inception, our raison d’être has been to create the very best living and social conditions for elderly people’s fulfilment. With chronic and progressive age-related diseases on the rise, our mission is to support dependent or vulnerable people over the long term, with compassion and dialogue, to help them achieve the lifestyle they desire by constantly seeking the ideal solution for them and their family.
A CHANGING LANDSCAPE
Inventing a society where people live longer is a global challenge. By 2030, elderly people over 65 will account for almost a quarter of the European population.
At the same time, INSEE predicts that by 2027, there will be more than 2 million more dependent elderly people in France, Italy and Germany than there are today. The number of people with cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease will have doubled in 2030.
It is crucial to find solutions to cope with the strong rise in dependency and chronic diseases.
Technology, medical advances and better training for professionals will help to provide a wider variety of solutions that cater to the needs of each individual.
OUR CARE-CENTRED STRATEGY
Our Korian 2020 strategy sets out five ways the Group will benefit our patients and residents :
Growth : expanding our network and care solutions to cater to increasing needs
Excellence : striving for operational quality to provide our residents and patients with better services
Human capital : investing in our 50,000 employees and developing their skills
Innovation : embracing new treatments and digital technology to aid our patients and residents
Real Estate : a good quality setting for good quality care
The values that underpin our work and expertise were defined with our staff in the countries we work in. Our values determine everything we do, every step of the way along the care journey.
OUR ETHICS CHARTER
These four values are the driving force behind Korian’s commitment for everyone in our Group to act with integrity and ethics. Each day, our duty is to act fairly, consistently, and with integrity, while complying with the regulations that govern our activities in every country of operation. The Charter determines the reaction of all Korian employees whenever they come up against an issue, to ensure that we provide the very best level of service for our residents and patients in alignment with our ethics and integrity.
Everyone at the Group is encouraged to discuss any ethical concerns they may have with their superiors or the Human Resources department. In addition, Korian has chosen to introduce an alert system which can be used by all Group employees to report any behaviour they consider unacceptable or as going against the ethical principles set out in the Charter.
