ONE GOAL. ONE TEAM.
The Group’s human capital is our most precious asset. Each employee has a share of expertise, skill and energy that provides answers to our customers’ demands and needs. The SULO Group is particularly committed to the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations: Decent Work and Economic Growth, Gender Equality and Good Health and Well-Being.
2.500 COMMITED AND RESPONSIBLE EMPLOYEES
In 2021, the group had 2,500 permanent employees in more than 40 subsidiaries, including more than 700 at nine industrial production sites. The Group’s resolutely European foothold therefore has a strong impact on the regions where its added value is redistributed. It is a major aspect of our social responsibility to protect local jobs in the regions closest to our local authority clients.
Recognizing and developing everyone’s skills.
The SULO Group wants to offer its employees opportunities to progress in their careers and develop their employability. The Group pursues an ambitious and dynamic training policy so that everyone can find their place and blossom. 54 % of the Group’s employees received training in 2019. At our production sites, virtual reality is making an appearance to train operators in ergonomic issues but also to transmit know-how and information on infrequent procedures. Ethics, respect for human rights and the fight against discrimination are all part of the SULO Group’s guidelines, both in its own activities and those carried out by its subcontractors. The company’s ambition is to foster local economic development and establish partnerships with all local players. More than a production chain, it is a value chain set up to serve local authorities.The Group also intends to fight against all forms of discrimination. The inclusion of the most vulnerable groups is a natural and integral part of our roadmap. The Group’s ethics guide reflects the Group’s values and sets out the code of conduct to which each of our employees is held in all areas of company life, such as the competition law and confidentiality.
Our Group Policy for Social Integration and Human Safety
SULO promotes initiatives in the areas of hiring disabled workers, job retention, subcontracting to ESAT employment centers and hiring on work-study contracts to give everyone a chance at employment.
Open and transparent social dialog
Sharing and exchange with employees is a priority for the Group. This policy of open and transparent dialog makes it possible to envision and support the company’s transformations in a constructive spirit of mutual respect. The CSR is currently being rolled out and in France, for example, employee profit-sharing includes a CSR criterion for the recovery/reuse of used parts.
ONE CULTURE – OUR SULO VALUES
We are responsible and committed community, we pay attention to the respect and safety of each other, we promote teamwork in a spirit of mutual trust, we strive for excellence and we encourage innovation to satisfy our customers who are our ultimate goal. Every day, living the values that bring us together!
Health & Safety at the heart of the SULO Group’s concerns
To ensure the health and safety of all employees and stakeholders is one of the company’s key values. The Group’s safety policy is based on a health and safety management system that is recognized worldwide, applied to all employees through training and awareness activities and integrated into our management policies.
ISO 45001 standard. It allows us to:
- Increase the concept of workplace safety for employees at all levels
- Promote social dialog by making clear and transparent commitments
- Reduce risks and prevent accidents
- Reduce direct and indirect financial costs, including costs related to accidents, sick leave and property damage.
- All production sites are certified
Top Safety Program
Launched in 2005, this program is based on a short format for assessing risks and each employee’s knowledge of the Group’s safety rules during an interview lasting just a few minutes. It is based on the Group’s five pillars (Machines and Materials, People and Leadership, Sites and Monitoring, Environment and Energy, Working Conditions) and the Group’s six non-negotiables (Pedestrian Circulation, Personal Protective Equipment & Tools, Forklifts, Lifted Loads, Lockout–Tagout, Work at Height). This approach helps to create a culture of safety on a daily basis
