Making all the difference
with our actions

#HUMANPERSPECTIVE

A unique company
with common values

“Making all the difference” is more than just a slogan: it is our signature. It is embodied in our decisions and achievements on a daily basis and expressed over time in our unique employee share ownership model and those values which have formed the base of our identity since the creation of our Group.

Eiffage is a committed group. It is imperative for us to develop in a reasoned manner, preserving those things that are most important to us and make us unique : our commitment to societal and environmental responsibility, our compact organization, our capacity to work and meet challenges together, and the team spirit, humanity and solidarity of our loyal and invested workforce, driven by entrepreneurial boldness and the will to break new ground. We need to ensure the preservation of one of our key strengths: the sharing of common values.

Working for Eiffage means living out our values and bringing them to life. The 6 core values are inseparable. They form a coherent whole, and each one becomes fully relevant by interacting with the others. They make us what we want to be: a bold and ambitious group driven by its values and by a single vision of excellence and humanism.

Our business sectors are characterized by their high technicality, but above all by the women and men working daily to carry through our projects. They are made of passion, commitment, rigour, independence, team spirit, respect and solidarity. Eiffage Génie Civil’s major strength is the sharing of common core values, combined with a unique employee share ownership scheme.
