We strongly believe that our company’s diversity is its greatest asset. And we are working on various ways of furthering this diversity in house, for example by actively making life easier for disabled workers, ensuring gender equality and promoting interaction between generations. More than 100 interns come to Bouygues Immobilier each year. And for the second year running, we have received the Happy Trainees label, which assesses efforts to welcome and support interns. The underlying survey of interns reveals that 85.7% of respondents were happy with their experience at Bouygues Immobilier and 91.8% would recommend it to others.
In 2017, Bouygues Immobilier was also awarded the HappyAtWork for Starters label, in recognition of its quality of life at work. In total, 84.9% of young employees say they enjoy both the duties assigned to them and the relationships developed with colleagues.
Our goal is to develop the potential of each and every one of our employees in optimal, modern working conditions. We apply a great deal of care to the training of our employees throughout their careers.
- First and foremost, we strive to integrate staff as best as we can. Each newcomer is offered a training programme based on a suite of innovative modules. An interactive, team-based Serious Game Session® is used as a fun way for discovering our corporate values and the key stages of a property development project. Each new employee is also mentored by a more senior member of staff to help familiarise them with the business culture and ethics. At the end of the process, an induction report is compiled for all employees below the age of 27.
- Our second goal is to develop a strategy for managing talent over the long term, which is why we place a strong emphasis on training that reinforces our strategic priorities. A digital training platform, BI Learn, successfully went live in April 2016. Our objective is to give each employee a straightforward way to access training. In 2016, 750 training modules were completed by company employees. One-third were led by in-house trainers representing the wide diversity of careers with the company. These volunteers play a pivotal role in BI Learn.
Bouygues Immobilier has every intention of remaining a standard-setting employer in the property industry.
Open spaces and private offices are a thing of the past. Work environments are undergoing a metamorphosis in several locations. Everything began in 2014 with plans to refit Galeo, Bouygues Immobilier’s headquarters just outside of Paris. Pilot departments were identified, and several employees were asked to rethink their own work spaces as well as common areas, always with a view to increasing collaboration. The focus was on office space. But armchairs, theme-based meeting rooms and sofa-lined meeting places were also included in the plans. The whole package was rounded out with closed areas, namely libraries (for working in a quiet atmosphere) and meeting rooms for hosting visitors in private. Regional headquarters have gradually taken up the trend and, in some places, shown the way. Employees no longer have assigned work spaces. Instead they are given a personal locker, and are able to change their place of work several times per day, depending on their current project and other requirements. Like their equipment, teams are mobile but can be easily reached via their laptop, smartphone, Skype Enterprise or another digital channel. This novel, fluid configuration reflects new working methods that promote increased openness, collaboration and sociability.
