Building to last, together
As an employer, our role in terms of social and societal issues is important to us and that is reflected in a number of commitments we make for all our employees, for our up-and-coming talents, for the community.
With humility and just as much determination, we are working with our stakeholders to draw up and implement agreements that foster quality of working life, the sharing of the value generated by the company, the gender mix and gender equality at work.
We are also reinforcing the bases of our policies to get disabled people into work and keep them in employment.
Finally, we are continuing to work on integrating young and disadvantaged people into the workforce and fight against discrimination.
Our company-wide agreements on quality of working life aim to reconcile the necessary quest for overall performance within the company and greater well-being at work for staff.
In addition, our unprecedented employee shareholding scheme is intended to share among everyone the value created by their collective work.

In 2021, 8 of our drillers undertook the process and succeeded with flying colours, obtaining a certificate recognising their experience as geotechnical drillers.
In 2022/2023, we have 9 drillers who have started the process.
An "action diagnosis" carried out with the Agefiph (the body that funds access to work initiatives for the disabled) has enabled us to reinforce our disability policy.
We want to act not only to:
