Bouygues Construction prioritises diversity and inclusion
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: Employee Wellbeing as a Key Priority
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.
- 36 % of new recruits are women in managerial positions
- Being committed and responsible also means promoting gender equity among all job families. Since January 2019, French companies have to measure their performance in terms of equity and publish their "Gender equity Index" on their official website. To know more about the results, please click here
