As a socially responsible company, SPIE is committed to equal opportunities and a better future based on the shared values of responsibility and proximity. SPIE's proximity and local roots—the result of this relationship of trust with civil society—also enable it to respond to the major challenges facing local communities.
As a creator of value for all its stakeholders, SPIE strives to share this value and act for the common good.
In managing its human resources, SPIE promotes diversity as a source of wealth for all. At the heart of the regions in which they work, the Group's employees also devote time to promoting more sustainable development.
Diversity: a guiding principle at SPIE
Gender diversity and professional equality, the integration of people with disabilities, a range of different backgrounds, a balance between generations... SPIE has a proactive anti-discrimination policy and encourages diversity with regard to gender, background and expertise. This commitment is formalised in the Diversity Charter. Although SPIE operates in a traditionally male-dominated technical sector, the So'SPIE Ladies network, which runs in all subsidiaries, deploys initiatives aimed at raising employees' awareness of diversity issues, increasing the mix of men and women on teams and driving women's career development.
Our employees supporting solidarity missions
Thanks to the Time4society programme, SPIE employees can, on a voluntary basis and with the company's support, devote time to community volunteering initiatives with local associations. In 2020, SPIE Belgium offered 41 days off work so that its employees could get involved in social or environmental projects in line with the values promoted by SPIE. Following the floods in Germany in July 2021, employees of SPIE Deutschland & Zentraleuropa repaired the electrical connections of 40 houses free of charge for families without insurance coverage. Thanks to a solidarity fundraising campaign set up by SPIE Deutschland & Zentraleuropa, more than €150,000 was donated to charities and to employees directly affected by the floods. SPIE France involves its employees in associations that promote increased gender diversity in technical professions, such as "Elles Bougent", and provides financial support for health research institutes such as the Gustave Roussy Institute.
SPIE, a partner to local communities
SPIE has a strong local presence and develops close relationships with local communities, helping them to meet the challenges of the energy transition and the digital transformation. SPIE develops innovative and sustainable—offerings smart lighting, charging stations for electric vehicles, hypervision systems—that give them more control over their budgets and their environmental impact. SPIE Nederland is in charge of replacing 11,000 street lighting systems with LED bulbs in the city of Schagen. The municipality is thus one step closer to its goal of becoming a 100% sustainable and carbon-neutral city. In addition, by promoting local employment, SPIE is contributing to the economic development of the areas in which it operates.
of executive positions at SPIE are held by women, and 13% of the total staff are female
