Promoting the image of the business and its development prospects
Colas carries out a wide range of activities to attract talent at all levels, overcome the traditional image of our businesses and provide information about how modern, complex and dynamic they are and the opportunities they offer: taking on thousands of paid interns, holding open days, speaking in schools and universities, carrying out poster campaigns, etc.
Attracting new recruits
To plan ahead and support our development, Colas must ensure that our human resources are regularly renewed and expanded. In order to replace leavers and maintain our growth drivers, Colas hires several thousand people per year. Recruitment of new graduates in France, based on a strong willed internship program that is at the heart of the Group’s HR policy.
Opening up to diversity
Maintaining the business' collective intelligence also means encouraging and protecting staff diversity. As well as complying with legal rules, Colas' human resources policy is open to greater gender equality, employment for older people, employment for people in difficulty (the long-term unemployed) and the recruitment and reintegration of employees with disabilities.
The Group’s actions in favor of the hard-to-employ were recognized by the Washburne Award for equal opportunity given out by the United States Embassy in France.
The Group’s diversity policy is multifold, and is adapted to suit the sociology and legal framework of each country in which we operate.
