Bouygues Construction awarded Top Employers France 2017 Certification
Jean-Manuel Soussan, Executive Vice President of Bouygues Construction with responsibility for human resources and policy on corporate and social responsibility, said: “Top Employers certification recognises the introduction of specific tools and the thorough work we have been carrying out over several years with the whole of the HR function and with senior management. We have been able to identify talents, reveal them and develop their potential, for example. Bouygues Construction gives every employee the opportunity to fully express his or her qualities, skills and personality, and encourages shared innovation at every level.”
The Top Employers Institute, an independent organisation, carries out a survey of large companies every year with the aim of identifying employers who stand out though the quality of their HR policy, enabling their employees to experience fulfilment, both professionally and personally.
As part of the process applied by Top Employers, participating companies submit themselves to a rigorous survey and must comply with a set of strict criteria in order to be certified. The Top Employers Institute assessed measures put in place by Bouygues Construction for the benefit of its personnel in the following areas:
- Talent strategy
- Workforce planning
- Learning and development
- Performance management
- Leadership development
- Career and succession management
- Compensation and benefits
A total of 71 companies were certified in 2017. Bouygues Construction was the only company in the French construction sector to obtain the certification.
