Botanic invents the future of work with Wittyfit

How to reduce stress by increasing satisfaction

“Trade, yes, but not at any price,” far from the clichés in the world of agriculture, Botanic decided, before everyone else, to bet on sustainable development. Founded in 1995, Botanic is a family-owned gardening company that has nothing to envy to the growth of its less responsible competitors.

By 2020, Botanic has more than 2,000 employees, 80% of whom share its values and fight for better management of natural and human resources.

In 2008, the company stopped selling pesticides and chemical fertilizers, an expensive but important move in the search for meaning for its employees. It was in this co-construction process, the “Well at Botanic” program, that Valérie Cotro, Botanic’s HR director, called Wittyfit.
