Our employees' motivation is the cornerstone of our success

Veolia's success is rooted primarily in its ability to attract talented people and gain their loyalty.

Veolia is committed to encouraging each employee’s professional development and engagement

Our employees’ engagement is a major asset. That is why we prioritize skills and career development, recognition of our employees and their performance, and respect for diversity. In concrete terms, this means that we pay attention to each and every employee's preferred career choices while ensuring that each position is filled by the most qualified person. The goal is to encourage individual and collective efficiency and productivity.

We have therefore implemented an ambitious training and HR development policy. The policy has three objectives: develop and adapt skills in all business lines, support Veolia’s performance and business development, and contribute to the development of our corporate culture.

Alongside this policy, we have set up a program specially designed for our managers to get them more personally involved in implementing our strategy.

Development and engagement: what are our responsibilities?


Development and engagement: our aims, our answers
