Veolia listed in Sunday Times Best Places to Work 2023 awards

Resource management specialist, Veolia has been listed in the inaugural Sunday Times Best Places to Work 2023, as one of the top 10 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 wellbeing. 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 award, Beth Whittaker, Chief HR Officer, Veolia Northern Europe said: “I’m delighted that Veolia has been recognised in the Sunday Times Best Places to Work Awards  which shows what our people think of Veolia, and demonstrates our commitment to our people and society at large.

“We see that our people are engaged and passionate, our work is important and innovative, and our impact is vast and vital. 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.”

Webinar: How to create an ethical supply chain in FM

Are you confident that your contractors and suppliers meet ethical labour standards and human rights obligations?

For many FM services, managing multiple third parties in the supply chain can be a complex challenge. And, in a sector that relies heavily on migrant workers and 65 per cent of FM services facing difficulties in sourcing workers (Q4 2022 RICS survey), exposure to exploitation and modern slavery is a very real risk. With the UK one of the biggest destinations in Europe for trafficking of workers, you need full visibility of the people you work with, so you can minimise your risks and identify which part of your supply chain is most vulnerable.

FMJ, in partnership with Alcumus, is pleased to bring together a panel of experts to discuss how to create an ethical supply chain in FM.

Taking place at 11am on Wednesday 21st of June, the webinar will discuss:

  • The regulations to be aware of that are aimed at preventing human right abuses.
  • How to gain greater visibility of modern slavery compliance in the supply chain by having a robust verification process in place.
  • Steps to creating a compliant, ethical supply chain.
