At TECHNAL, when it comes to Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging (DIB), our long-term goal is to be the mirror of our society.
To achieve our ambition to create an inclusive work culture, we have a strong action planed organized around a dedicated DIB Working Group to screen our practices, increase internal awareness and train our HRs and leaders.
We also have two gender goals: to have 50% of our new hires be females by 2025 and reach 27% of female employees by the same year. Our focus will be on operations and sales, where gender diversity in the weakest in the building and construction sector
It means we all have the responsability to educate the building and construction market and show how women are as capable as men to do the job. It implies working hand in hand with our partners towards a gender-aware market.
Diversity is also about ethnicity and national origins.
At TECHNAL, in 2021, our employees represented a mosaic of 61 different nationalities. And for us, being a workplace fostering collaboration between all generations is also a priority: that is why we put a high focus on integrating more and more apprentices and trainees
