Reflecting the social diversity in each country.
Our employees' wide variety of backgrounds and broad range of experience are an integral part of our culture. Our companies strive to ensure that their workforce reflects the diversity of the communities in which they operate. In keeping with this approach, we pursue a pro-active equality policy to combat all forms of discrimination in hiring and in labour relations, with particular attention to discrimination against women, disabled people, older people and people of immigrant background. In this way, we strive to create a working environment in which all employees, in all their diversity, are given an opportunity to make the most of their abilities and help the company achieve its goals.
Fostering work integration
VINCI Construction companies support social solidarity by recruiting people alienated from the job market. To support them, particularly in cases of public procurement integration clauses, VINCI set up its subsidiary ViE in 2011 to serve as an interface between the Group and the social and solidarity organisations that recruit people in integration programmes and provide initial training for them. In 2012, its first full year in operation, ViE was involved in workforce development on 87 projects (notably the SFR head office and the Canopée des Halles in the Greater Paris area and the Denain urban renewal project in northern France), which accounted for 1.35 million hours of work. ViE provided direct support for 712 people in work integration programmes. Special integration programmes are also being implemented on major projects, such as the SEA HSL
Retention of disabled employees.
The Trajeo'h association set up in France by VINCI fosters redeployment and retention of employees unable to continue in their jobs following a work-related accident or illness and recruitment of disabled people. The association is active in the Greater Paris, Rhône-Alpes, Auvergne, Burgundy, Franche-Comté and Provence-Alpes-Côte-d'Azur regions, and it opened a new delegation in Upper Normandy in 2012. In 2012, Trajeo'h supported 173 pre-disability assessments and redeployed 92 disabled employees.
