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.
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 us, this Top Employers certification is an opportunity to think about our policies, and to go even further, so that our policies and practices become ever more efficient.”

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
- 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.
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 Group’s HR policy again focuses on training, with a view to nurturing a common culture. The development of skills is necessary for the growth of the Group and the transformation of our activities. "
