VINCI’s human resources policy is geared to offering every employee a career path leading to career development within the company. In every business line, in-house training centres (for which resources have been substantially increased over the years) develop programmes to reskill employees as business activities change and to disseminate a common technical and managerial culture. Career development is encouraged by a management culture that stresses empowerment and rewards initiative.
Personalised trainingVINCI’s training system seeks to develop synergies throughout the Group and deploy them through its decentralised structure. Each business line, in France as well as internationally, has established its own training centres offering programmes tailored to its specific activities and needs. VINCI has decided to set up an e-learning platform common to all Group training centres so as to make discussions easier and deepen synergies.
Development of professional integration and qualification programmesVINCI helps people who have become isolated from the world of work, offering a comprehensive framework focused on professional integration, access to training and measures to mitigate the social difficulties they face. Over the medium term, this approach is designed to be implemented internationally, in line with local economic and social conditions. In 2011, VINCI set up ViE, a Group social enterprise that helps Group companies implement their work integration programmes.
Promotion of dialogue between employers and trade unionsVINCI’s responsible employer approach is expressed through active dialogue with employee representative bodies, in accordance with the principles of trade union independence and pluralism. Dialogue between management and labour is a key component of the Group Manifesto (fichier PDF 487 Ko). In countries in which the International Labour Organisation (ILO) Conventions on trade union freedoms have not been ratified, VINCI companies work to provide employees with channels to express their views.
