In a business that values its human capital, the only valid policy is a long-term one: the relationship between the business and its employees must be a lasting one. To this end, Colas seeks to ensure that the Group's day-to-day working environment is characterized by respect, fairness, dialog between management and labor, and the recognition of merit, and that employee benefits and the principle of overall compensation continue to apply.
Colas' overall compensation policy is a key component in developing loyalty. The Group's staff receive both a fixed and a variable component of salary (in line with achievement of set targets, fulfillment of responsibilities and business performance). In addition, the Group offers retirement, death and disability plans, health insurance and savings products as local legislation allows. In various countries including France, staff also benefit from profit-sharing agreements and can sign up for employee savings schemes. This policy aims to balance immediate purchasing power with benefits encouraging staff loyalty.
