The core aim of Bouygues Construction is to support its co-workers while also being vigilant about everybody getting the same chances to develop regardless of their background, as well as ensuring that people enjoy a good work-life balance.


Bouygues Construction has four priority focus areas: disability access, diversity of background, diversity of educational attainment, and diversity of social origins.
Each of these priority areas forms the centre-piece of a comprehensive action plan that encompasses training, awareness-raising, monitoring numerical indicators, and concrete actions that are undertaken in as close proximity to employees as possible.

Quality of Life at Work

Bouygues Construction has launched an initiative designed to adapt work within the business to cultural, societal and generational changes.
The initiative has many objectives: to sustainably improve performance whilst also enhancing the social climate, and ensuring that workers enjoy good health and well-being. Workers also have the opportunity to be involved in the Group’s cultural and managerial transformation, thereby reinforcing its appeal and building sustainable relationships between business partners.    

“The renewal of our Top Employers certification and—for the first time this year—its extension across all of our European establishments emphasises the high quality of our human resource policies in France and abroad. The Bouygues Construction group values its workers and their work environment very highly indeed wherever it operates, and we are always working to deliver an ever-improving response to cultural, societal and generational developments.”
