Leading resource management company, Veolia has been listed in the inaugural Sunday Times Best Places to Work 2023, as one of the top ten best “very big” companies to work for as well as being highly commended as an employer for the over 55s. The awards celebrate organisations with the highest employee engagement and wellbeing levels, as measured by the in-depth employee surveys carried out this year, and are only presented to companies who meet the strict engagement criteria.
The award marks the success of the extensive programmes implemented by Veolia across its employees, 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 every team to contribute in a bespoke, impactful way that aligns to the MFP framework and supports the company's purpose of ecological transformation.
Commenting on the prestigious award, Beth Whittaker, Chief HR Officer, Veolia Northern Europe said:
