The imagination and courage of our employees drives every successful product and discovery Bayer makes. Our “research” magazine takes you inside our pipeline, shares the stories behind our innovations, and introduces you to the people who make them possible.
In France, Bayer Crop Science owns two research centers that develop innovative solutions for crop protection. The La Dargoire research center near Lyon, for instance, discovered fluopyram*.
Bayer Consumer Health's French subsidiary also plays a very active role in innovation. The Gaillard research center in Haute-Savoie is responsible for the global development of multivitamin supplements, gastrointestinal and dermatological products.

Strengthening the Culture of Innovation
None of us is as smart as all of us together. That’s why we have developed two initiatives that collect the best ideas and solutions from all Bayer employees : “WeSolve” allows employees to submit challenging questions and seek answers from colleagues, and the Bayer Ideas Pool elicits suggestions for improvements to the company.
Combining our knowledge and ingenuity ensures that our most innovative ideas will be heard and put to use by our customers and society.
The Bayer Employee Survey
The Bayer Employee Survey is intended to empower employee involvement in the company and inspire innovation in all areas. Every two years, all employees are invited to give us their feedback on our strategy, culture, and working conditions.
The opinions expressed in the survey are very important to Bayer and we have launched a variety of initiatives and improvements worldwide in response to the survey results.
