Bouygues Construction works in a traditionally male-dominated field, and has a duty to attract and retain talented women and give them easy access to the positions they want. 

Increasing the number of women in the group: more diversity for better performance.

The group’s gender strategy, which was launched 10 years ago, aims to support female employees in their day-to-day career development and to encourage female students to enter the building and public works sector and professions that have historically been dominated by men. What is the goal? To roll out a number of local initiatives wherever the Group operates, in order to: 

1.    Appeal to women, because Bouygues Construction’s success is built on the diversity of its teams, their know-how and their interpersonal skills
2.    Retain its female talent through robust measures to foster their commitment and develop their proactivity
3.    Allow female employees to fully fulfil their career potential and ensure that they are entitled to the same responsibilities as men

Additionally, in 2021, Bouygues Construction set new targets for 2023 by defining international monitoring indicators: percentages of women executives, women managers, women "talent" managers and women in the COMEX/CODG/CODIR.

Bouygues Construction has included managerial parity in its monitoring indicators since 2021, and progress in gender indicators is now incorporated into the variable compensation objectives of the Group’s managers.

"Welink, Bouygues Construction au féminin."

Bouygues Construction also draws on its international women’s network, Welink, which has also been given a makeover! With its new logo, a new slogan (Bouygues Construction au féminin) and a new, more modern visual universe, Welink is redefining its raison d’être around three main objectives:

1.    Contributing to raising the number of women in the construction industry
2.    Supporting the professional advancement of women at Bouygues Construction
3.    Making the Group more attractive and efficient by improving the gender mix of its teams

Founded in 2013, Welink is the first corporate networks launched to promote the role of women in the construction sector. Although it was initially designed to help female managers advance their careers within the group, since 2016 the network has been open to all female employees. Today, the network has more than 800 members worldwide within the group’s entities, and there are local versions of the Welink network in a number of countries where Bouygues Construction operates.
