Labour relations 2.9. Labour relations are a key driver of performance for an economy in support of an inclusive collective underpinned by the Group’s values. The Group’s adhesion to the UN Global Compact is in keeping with its commitment to uphold freedom of association and recognise the right to collective bargaining, in line with the principles of the ILO’s eight fundamental conventions. Sopra Steria seeks to implement measures intended to improve professional relations between the company and its employees even in countries that do not have an institutional framework governing the recognition of employee representatives’ status. Non-discrimination policies and procedures are implemented with regard to employee representatives. Against this backdrop and in accordance with legislation in force in each country where the Group operates, Sopra Steria is committed to establishing constructive dialogue with employee representatives on matters relating to corporate strategy and the company’s economic, financial and employee policy. In the event of a reorganisation project, Group companies place a priority on taking responsible action to support change and guide transformation, in collaboration with employee representatives.
Along these lines, companies can put in place a range of support and professional development measures, including mobility and training opportunities. Truly individualised training programmes can be implemented, and even measures like the “Newskill” programme (see section 2.6. “Maintaining and developing skills” (page 112). The initiatives brought about by collective bargaining increase employees’ sense of belonging, ensuring that all staff are committed to the corporate plan and that the challenges posed by digital transformation are met. The Group supports and advocates these principles in its Code of Ethics, available on the Group website and thus accessible to all stakeholders. Responsibility for labour relations in each country lies with the Chief Executive Officer and the HR Director. They are responsible for: Holding regular updates with representatives of management and p staff to respond to employee expectations; Putting in place all bodies required by legislation in force in their p country.
