The Group conducted a global employee engagement survey, Tell Us , in all its business units worldwide for the first time in 2018. The survey reveals a high level of engagement (61%) and real employee pride in working for SUEZ (72%). Thanks to the high response rate (72%), the results of Tell Us have also been a rich source of information for use in developing concrete action plans based closely on expectations.
2018 continued the harmonisation of corporate cultures among employees of the former GE Water and SUEZ to accelerate the conquest of new industrial markets. The Group s digital revolution was applied to professional mobility policies with the creation of the #mymobility platform, which helped to increase the number of internal transfers within the Group by over 12% in a year; it was also
used to support training, with a rise of over 35% in e-learning hours.
In line with the sustainable development goals, the percentage of women in management rose by a point between 2017 and 2018 (29.4% excluding WTS), resulting from a diversity roadmap with strong ambitions to accelerate the recruitment of women, reduce the gender pay gap and develop the corporate culture with a campaign against everyday sexism in all the Group s business units.
The health and safety policy is the SUEZ Group s main strength in the eyes of employees: results continued to improve in 2018, with new targeted action plans such as the one focused on boosting the prevention of collisions between vehicles and pedestrians.
In 2018, for the fifth year in a row, SUEZ obtained Top Employer France certification
