To consolidate its position as a responsible employer, Colas prioritizes four foundational principles: attracting, integrating, retaining and developing. These principles are fully integrated into our CSR commitments and support our employer brand and our Group values of Caring, Sharing and Daring.

    Attracting and retaining talent

    Colas has put in place a strategy to attract up-and-coming talent reflecting the diversity of our society (in terms of culture, ethnicity, gender, thought, etc.).

    This helps the Group foster an inclusive working environment where everyone is respected and valued for what they bring to the table.

    The goal is for each and every employee to achieve their full potential throughout their career.

    Upskilling our workforce by strengthening management excellence

    The Group invests in upskilling its employees with the aim of: 

    • Boosting their expertise
    • Promoting career development
    • Anticipating changes in the industry

    To this end, we offer tailored digital training and promote a culture of lifelong learning and equal opportunities for advancement.

    Creating a healthy working environment

    Because we believe employee engagement is vital, we work with employees to create a working environment that meets their expectations.

    This involves listening to our people and putting in place local action plans.
