Professional development

Veolia’s performance is partly governed by its ability to attract and retain talent. Because the motivation and mobilization of our employees is our wealth and strength, our priorities include skills and career development, recognition of our employees and their performance respecting their diversity.
We have therefore established an ambitious training and HR development policy.
Finally, a mechanism aimed at our managers more closely associates them with implementing our strategy


This document sets out the key data on Veolia’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) performance.
