4 CSR AND NON-FINANCIAL INFORMATION - Attracting, developing and retaining talents
4.3 Attracting, developing and retaining talents
Mindful that employee commitment is key to the Group’s success, Rubis ensures that individuals have the opportunity for professional development with the aim of attracting, developing and retaining its talents. To do this, Rubis focuses its efforts on promoting diversity and equal opportunities (section 4.3.1), employee skills development (section 4.3.2), health, safety and well-being at work (section 4.3.3) and involving employees in the Group’s value creation (section 4.3.4).
Group risk mapping has identified the main social risks related to activities. These risks mainly concern the health and safety of employees and external service providers working on Group sites. Apart from these risks, a key challenge relating to human resource management was identified by the relevant departments in each division:
attracting, developing and retaining talent while the Group grows and where human resources must be adapted to Rubis’ development strategy. This challenge is dealt with in this chapter. To make the most of its human capital and better handle the specializations involved in
the Group’s different activities, and in line with its corporate culture, its social policy roll-out has been decentralized. Operating subsidiaries manage human resources independently, in accordance with the Group’s values, and implement local actions tailored to their needs and issues.
GUIDING THE WEALTH THAT IS PEOPLE, OUR DAILY MISSION “Work is themain human activity and is essential to social integration; it is a source ofmental stimulation for individuals and helps everyone achieve their potential and express their talents, which is clearly important in life.” Edmund Phelps, 2006 Nobel Prize for Economics
This quotation highlights the fact that we all find personal satisfaction in carrying out our professional activities. This stimulation is an important issue and makes our employees key to our Group’s success. Our history, the culture of our employees and the vision of our Managers are the foundations of our human resources management. Revealing talent means taking diversity into account, integrating new employees, managing their employability, recognizing and motivating employees in organizations where the values should be close to their own. These challenges are constantly changing, in terms of both work organization (work-life balance, health and well-being in the workplace, etc.) and career progression (mobility, training, fair compensation, etc.). Talent management is the responsibility of senior Managers and human resources and is essential to the life of the Company and a key factor behind our competitiveness. The quality of our teams is a real factor behind the success of our organizations.
