Diversity Label confirmed for APRR & AREA

The APRR group has had its Diversity label award renewed following its presentation to the certification committee on 6 February. It is a recognition of the commitment and actions taken by APRR & AREA in favour of diversity, equal opportunities and non-discrimination, initiated in 2011.

It thus confirms the APRR Group’s proactive stance in favour of well-being together in support of individual and collective performance.

"Thank you to everyone who works day by day to say "no to all forms of discrimination." I would like to thank all the employees for their involvement and all our partners who support us in this process. This renewal is a new milestone. Far from being a goal, this label is a tremendous reward for the daily efforts of our teams and commits us to make further progress in the future. "
Pascal Billard, Human Resources Director

This label, granted for a period of four years, is awarded to companies that carry out actions for non-discriminatory managerial processes and in favour of equal opportunities, in particular in terms of professional integration. It also incorporates the principle of non-discrimination in customer and supplier relations.
