The company does indeed apply a specific policy designed to help experts, allowing their contributions to be valued and their support and development within the Group to be improved. This policy is based on close cooperation between the Human Resources Department and the technical departments of our business lines. Its primary goal is to identify experts. At any given time, it allows us to have a good overview of the expertise within the company, to identify any possible shortcomings in terms of skills within certain fields and subsequently to take appropriate preventive measures. This identification approach is the first step in a personalised support programme that notably includes experts attending training programmes so as to develop their skills in non-technical areas (leadership, communication, mentoring, etc.).
To date, 585 experts from within our business lines have been identified.

It is a strategic asset and a competitive advantage that we absolutely need to value and strengthen. As such, SUEZ has a duty to offer its experts the means to grow and build attractive careers. That is the goal behind our HR policy; one that places an emphasis on supporting experts and that has already been in place for several years. It is imperative for our Group to motivate its experts to enter into their activities for the long term but also to attract young talent to our business.
