2. Human Rights

Diversity, equal opportunity, and fighting discrimination


An independent and international family group for promotion and building, Rabot Dutilleul is one of the ten leading actors in France in the civil engineering area. Founded in 1920 in the city of Lille, the company developed its skills in the complementary businesses tied to construction, thus acquiring nearly total mastery of the real estate chain. Rabot Dutilleul cultivates values based on group performance, with nearly 1,850 employees, and aims to establish long-lasting relationships with its partners. Present in France, Belgium and Poland, the Group is held at 85% by the Dutilleul family and at 15% by employees. Robot Dutilleul implemented two successive action plans for the disabled: in 2012-2014 and in 2015-2017.


  • 2012-2014 Action Plan: Work on diversity as a driver of performance and competitiveness on a voluntary basis, but also by taking into account current legal obligations
  • 2015-2017 Action Plan for the Disabled: Involve managing directors, "ambassador" managers and all other employees and unite them around a shared company project known as "Handi'accueillante" ("welcome to the disabled").


The first Rabot Dutilleul Action Plan for the disabled was implemented in 2012-2014 on the initiative of the Group Human Resources Department. Actions (continuing today) include:

  • Distribute flyers internally to Rabot Dutilleul employees to increase awareness of disability, in particular as concerns the recognition of disabled workers.
  • Mobilize employment partners to help Group companies in recruiting the disabled and maintaining them in their job.
  • Train a circle of disability references as an internal network for deploying disability action beyond the limits of the Human Resources Department.
  • Participate in the circle of AGEFIPH references
  • Organize an annual disability week: This week is based on the challenges to be met and key encounters organized for all offices and partnerships with an association (Guide Dogs for the Blind in 2015).
  • Collect "Love" caps (with an inter-subsidiary challenge)


2015-2017 Action Plan for the Disabled: 

Objectives: Continue to raise employee awareness • Mobilize employees • Be a company that welcomes the disabled • Recruit the disabled and keep them on the job • Reduce the AGEFIPH contribution • Develop partnerships with protected and adapted sectors


Additional actions:

  • Creation of a Handi’CAP steering committee (Executive Management and Group HR, French Subsidiary HR and Group Communication).
  • Partnership with ELISE for all Group companies 
  • Awareness raising for interns and alternates (via iPad and creative workshops)
  • Races and sports and solidarity-based challenges
  • Interactive game at Executive Committee seminar
