Veolia Environnement named Employer of the Year


Veolia Environnement has been named Employer of the Year at this year’s National Employer Service Learners First awards.

The company was singled out for its contribution to workplace learning, beating off fierce competition from the other finalist employers, who included TUI Travel and the Royal Navy.

Veolia Environnement’s commitment to training involves its purpose-designed and operated training centre, Campus Veolia, as well as a comprehensive programme ensuring that every employee has the possibility of achieving at least a NVQ Level 2. To date, achievements include a number of Train to Gain completions and the introduction of apprenticeships in 2007.

Ronnie Bennett, managing director, Campus Veolia Environnement, said: “This recognition means so much to all of us here at Veolia. Development of our people is crucial to the long term advancement of our company as it not only helps create excellence in the service we offer to our clients but also it acts as powerful motivator and reward to our employees.”

With more than 300,000 employees, Veolia Environnement is a global operator providing environmental services: energy management, freight and passenger transportation, water and waste. Veolia Environnement recorded revenues of €32.6 billion in 2007. The UK business has around 20,000 employees.

The Learners First awards recognise the achievements of individuals employed by large businesses who hold training contracts with the National Employer Service. These learners have excelled in their work-based learning programmes, and many of them have overcome significant challenges to do so. The awards also recognise the achievements of their employers who, by making and fulfilling their Skills Pledge and supporting their employees, have demonstrated their commitment to skills development in their workplace.
