Quality of work life

We feel good at Covivio

At Covivio, we understand that a company’s health depends on the well-being of its teams. That is why we work to improve it every day! Every two years, we conduct an internal survey to measure the satisfaction and commitment of our teams. The results are no secret – we share them with the entire company!

It’s important to get feedback from our employees about issues like quality of working life, communication between teams, change management, innovation and cooperation between all partners. With every edition, the results challenge us to make better progress together.

European parity goal

Initiated in 2017 by Covivio, Ex-Aequo is a European program designed to promote equality between women and men. It has three main components: awareness-raising, HR actions (recruitment, remuneration, training, etc.) and mentoring. It enables women employees who so wish to benefit from support provided by one of the members of Top Management. Each year, around thirty French, Italian and German women benefit from this programme.

In France, the 2024 gender equality index (based on 2023 data) for Covivio is 94/100

  1. The gender pay gap: 34/40
  2. The gap in the rate of individual salary increases (excluding promotions): 20/20
  3. The gap in promotion rates between women and men: 15/15
  4. The % of employees who received a raise in the year they returned from maternity leave: 15/15
  5. The number of employees of the under-represented gender in the highest paid positions: 10/10

Law 2021-1774 of 2021 (known as the Rixain Law) creates an obligation for large companies to reach a minimum target of 30% of women and men among their senior managers and 30% of women and men within their management bodies within 5 years. For 2023 (based on 2022 data), Covivio obtains the following results:

  1. Percentage of women and men in senior management: 62%
  2. Percentage of women and men among the members of the management bodies: 38%.

An ambitious training policy

Besides rewarding people for their performance, helping them develop their skills is also crucial. Here at Covivio, we prefer a tailored and individual approach to training. This is achieved through a bold training policy with a budget representing nearly 4% of the total payroll. The policy focuses on both hard skills and soft skills. Career interviews, “people reviews” and individual coaching sessions all contribute towards employees’ professional development.

We are always investing more in training and make it available to as many people as possible. We also adapt to our employees by offering part-time schemes to parents, early retirement plans, etc. Although Covivio is growing and developing a lot, the company’s atmosphere and goodwill remain unchanged.

Our commitments

Covivio Foundation: for the success of all

At Covivio, we know we need talent and motivation to succeed, but we also need a helping hand! This is why the Covivio Foundation, created in 2020, is committed to equal opportunities. In Italy, Germany and France, through local committees made up of Covivio teams, it supports the work of numerous associations. Covivio also facilitates employee involvement with the Socovivio programme based on skills sponsorship.

Meeting the carbon challenge together

Being ambitious in terms of carbon policy is good. Getting your teams on board is even better. In 2023, Covivio launched the Covivio 4 Climate (C4C) programme. The aim is to reduce the group’s corporate carbon emissions in Europe. Purchasing policy, home-work journeys, catering services, green IT… This is a major project in which each and every one of us can become involved on a daily basis to meet the climate challenge.
