Veolia has been included as a Top 40 employer in the inaugural list of Best Places to Work published by Britain’s Sunday Times newspaper.
The French multinational environmental services provider was also commended highly as an employer of the over 55s.
The new awards celebrate organisations with high levels of employee engagement and support for employee wellbeing as determined through employee survey questionnaires, and are only presented to companies that meet strict criteria for engagement.
The award caps extensive programmes implemented by Veolia covering employee experience, purpose, inclusion, diversity, and well-being. These have been developed in line with the multifaceted performance (MFP) framework, focusing specifically on what does for stakeholder groups, and how this measures up to the five performance areas: commercial, environmental, economic, human resources and social. This allows teams to contribute in a bespoke, impactful way that aligns to the MFP framework and supports the company’s purpose of ecological transformation.

The strength of our shared purpose is what gives us all the same drive for our work: no matter whether delivering sustainable solutions to our customers on the ground, or supporting innovation in our corporate teams.
“It’s through living our values that we bring our purpose of ecological transformation to life – all while making Veolia an inclusive and supportive place to work.”
