Employee development

Employees play an essential role in the Group’s transformation, that’s why developing know-how and skills is a priority. Furthermore, SUEZ involves every single employee in the future success and performance of the Group.

2017 Top Employers

SUEZ is rewarded for its talent development policy

In 2017, and for the fifth year in succession, SUEZ was certified as a “Top Employer” by the Top Employers Institute. This award recognises the Group’s human resources practices, and in particular its career management and talent development policies.

For SUEZ, employee development is at the very heart of the Group’s transformation. To this end, the Group has defined a number of priorities:

  • career management
  • the development of talent and potential
  • diversity
  • training and leadership

This policy is equal to the challenges facing the Group and is one step ahead of the future changes in its activities.


The Top Employers certification is awarded to companies that meet the very highest criteria applying to working conditions. In 2017, the Group received this distinction for the fifth consecutive year.

The independent survey by the Top Employers Institute revealed that SUEZ provides its employees with good working conditions, nurtures and develops talents at every level of the organisation and is a leader in the field of human resources that continuously strives to optimise its practices.
Skills development

Developing know-how and skills

The Group’s employees play an essential role in its transformation, which is the reason why their skills are one of the keys to its development. This is why training is a priority for SUEZ.

The figures for 2016 demonstrate this ambition, with 67.5% of employees worldwide who followed training.

A total of 1.4 million hours of training (of which, 12% were e-learning) were delivered, or an average of 25 hours per person trained.
