Inclusion at Bureau Veritas is not a gesture. It is a commitment. We value open-minded people who make decisions based on facts and data and without bias. For us, Inclusion means we attract, select and retain the best people irrespective of gender, nationality, background, sexual orientation, origin, ethnicity, disability…. And so on.
A key priority for Bureau Veritas is to accelerate Gender Balance and to have 25% of our senior management to be women by 2020. All our operations lead their commitments to Diversity & Inclusion within a “Gender Plus One” framework and undertake relevant local actions to ensure an inclusive environment for all at Bureau Veritas.
We also need to lead by example at the Executive Committee level: Today, the percentage of women on the Global Executive Committee is 20%, compared to 0% in early 2017.
Promoting Inclusion is about creating an inclusive culture where talent is selected based on the basis of merit: we want to attract new talent to create a workforce enriched with a diversity of different cultures, beliefs and professional backgrounds.
Promoting Inclusion is also about welcoming an open dialogue with leaders in the field, because we believe that inclusion starts with listening to opinions, particularly when moving towards Inclusion demands a significant cultural shift. At Bureau Veritas, Inclusion is about actively involving every employee’s ideas, knowledge, perspectives, approaches and styles to maximize business success. Inclusion is as well about building trust within teams, trust that diversity is a unique opportunity to make us even more successful in the long term.
Our CEO, Didier Michaud-Daniel is the first Bureau Veritas spokesman on Inclusion. He leads by example and follows closely the progress that we are making. His vision is for Bureau Veritas to become—in the very near future—a model of Inclusion, seen by others as best in class and fully representative of the clients and society that we serve.
