About SUEZ recycling and recovery UK

SUEZ deliver innovative and environmentally responsible solutions to manage waste and water for their customers, households, local authorities, and industry and commerce.

SUEZ strive to secure the planet's resources and be part of the 'resource revolution'. They work to safeguard the environment and the public through essential waste and water management services, contribute to the sustainable development of communities, businesses and regions and promote the emerging low-carbon circular economy.

With over 5,000 employees in the UK, SUEZ understands the importance of looking after their wellbeing. The organisation's employee assistance programme, 'LifeWorks', provides all employees with access to a free and confidential 24-hour support service that can help anyone facing issues that could adversely affect their work or personal lives.

Their wellness charter, created by staff, also covers stress management and looks at the factors which contribute to stress, including those that are emotional, financial, job-related, mental wellbeing, physical health, social and work environment.

SUEZ believes that employee engagement is key to ensuring that all new starters receive a warm welcome and that the on-boarding process runs smoothly. Employees receive a 'welcome gift box' which includes items that represent the organisation's values, such as a reusable cup, note pad, pen (all branded and made from recycled materials) and seeds.

The induction process is designed around the new team member and tailored to suit their individual introduction to both their new role and department, ensuring they start life with SUEZ in the best possible way.
