The global authority on recognising excellence in people practices, the Top Employers Institute programme certifies organisations after an in-depth evaluation process. Covering six HR domains, the thorough analysis included assessing Bouygues E&S, an Equans company, across 20 topics, including our People Strategy, Work Environment, Talent Acquisition, Wellbeing, and more.
We’re delighted to announce that we passed with flying colours and have been awarded the Top Employer in the UK accreditation. It was particularly gratifying to be recognised for both our ongoing dedication to diversity and inclusion and our strong alignment with the values of ethics and integrity, with both areas receiving full marks from Top Employer. Furthermore, our diligent efforts to accelerate our net-zero journey for both us and our clients won us similarly high scores in the Sustainability topic.
This award showcases our position as an employer of choice, underlining how our excellent people practices sustain a working environment in which our people feel empowered, supported, and welcomed. At a time of a growing skills gap within the industry, we are prouder than ever of our ability to attract and nurture our employees.
In light of this news, HR Director for Bouygues E&S Solutions UK, an Equans company, Paul Cadman, shared with us:
“For the fifth year in a row, we have set ourselves a new record for our overall high score – proof that we live by our principle of continuous improvement. It is through this drive to build on our successes that we are able to deliver the best for our employees, be that through enhanced learning and development programmes, a diverse and accepting work environment, or people-centric leadership. A massive thank you and well done to all of our colleagues at Bouygues E&S who have contributed to our success in receiving a Top Employer Award.”
Emma Gould, HR Director at Bouygues Energies & Services Contracting, echoed the sentiment, noting:
“We are delighted to have received Top Employer UK certification once again. This recognition underlines our desire to provide better support for our employees by putting them at the heart of our business. The certification is a great achievement but what this means most to us is listening to our employees, obtaining their feedback, and allowing them to make suggestions for the future - together we can achieve great success.”
I am very proud of all my colleagues and our teams, and I want to thank them all for their continuous efforts in helping us obtain another Top employer award.”
Furthermore, Top Employers Institute CEO David Plink reported:
“Exceptional times bring out the best in people and organisations. And we have witnessed this in our Top Employers Certification Programme this year: exceptional performance from the certified Top Employers 2023. These employers have always shown that they care for the development and well-being of their people. By doing so, they collectively enrich the world of work. We are proud to announce and celebrate this year’s group of leading people-oriented employers: the Top Employers 2023.”
