At Veolia, we know just how much of a difference Inclusion and Diversity in the workplace can make. We’re proud of how it forms a key part of our organisation and culture.
And as an ambitious company, we’re making sure our way forward is shaped around an inclusive culture, one that values your unique set of skills and experiences.
One way we’re helping to build this culture is through our dedicated inclusion committee EQUAL – 14 colleagues who are dedicated to championing equality throughout the business.
Alongside this, our current Inclusion Strategy focuses on five key priorities:
- Attraction and Selection
- Awareness and Upskilling
Here’s a few other ways in which we’re backing inclusion and diversity:
Through working with WAMITAB, we’re building relationships with prisons across the country to offer offenders a way forward after they’re released. By providing training and employment opportunities towards the end of their sentence, we’re hoping to give everyone a chance to start fresh and rebuild their future.
Every company has the responsibility of being socially aware and involved, especially when it comes to age, race, gender, and wellbeing. So we’ve been working with Business In The Community, an organisation who’ve been advising us on how to make our workforce both inclusive and representative of the communities we serve.
It’s important to remember that your mental health is just as crucial as your physical health. It needs to be taken seriously in the workplace, so we’re extremely proud to support the Mental Health At Work commitment. Also, we have 230 mental health first aiders working across the business, there to support you whenever you need them.
Our support for the Armed Forces community is demonstrated through the Employer Recognition Scheme. We employ Reservists, Service Leavers, Armed Forces Veterans, Cadet Instructors, and military spouses/ partners.
