Be Inclusive

In July, we informed you about our Corporate Culture campaign #BetterTogether and the six behaviours it encompasses. Today, we focus on the first behaviour: Be Inclusive.

Inclusion is central and linked to the value of respect. It ensures fairness and equal opportunities, openness towards our colleagues, regardless of their background, beliefs, or lifestyles. BESIX Group’s teams are undeniably diverse, as illustrated in the book Together, now we must learn how to make our workplace inclusive.

Everyone has the power to change things and learn how to make the workplace more agreeable and inclusive for everyone – that includes you too!

Be Inclusive invites us to support the well-being of our colleagues by contributing to a respectful and caring work environment. Inclusion is about being open to other ways of looking at things and being willing to co-create solutions with others, with the ability to question our own views or opinions. Our business world is getting more complex by the minute, so we need all to reply on different inputs and experts to come to the best decisions.” – Pierre Sironval, Deputy CEO.

About #BetterTogether

BESIX Group, through the Executive Committee, has identified six behaviours that are intrinsically linked to our corporate culture, our values, and therefore expected of each of us to adopt and apply. Together, the first letters of each of these six behaviours form the word BETTER.

Be inclusive | Eagerness | Take ownership | Trust | Engaging teams | Resolve together.

By applying them in our daily work, we will contribute to continuous improvement, take quicker decisions, remain a leading company in our fields of activity, and do better, together. We want also to give you the opportunity to co-create this culture with us. Challenge us on how we can embedded this culture through our 6 behaviours even more. Give feedback on how we and our leadership teams, are embodying our culture.

Caroline Vyncke is appointed as project coordinator for the BETTER behaviours and culture plan roll-out. You can contact her for details, feedback and ideas.
