Bouygues Construction has been officially recognised by the Top Employers Institute, an independent HR certification company, as a Top Employer 2019 for excellence in employee conditions.
Organisations certified as Top Employers dedicate themselves to providing the very best working environment for employees through their progressive ‘people-first’ HR practices.
What it means to be a Top Employer
Bouygues Construction United Kingdom’s evaluation highlighted three major strengths in the topics of Leadership Development, Learning & Development and Culture.

The Top Employers Institute evaluates the implementation of these HR practices and reviews how they are supported through Strategy, Ownership, Practices, Measurement and Technology.
