To become a responsible employer

At TotalEnergies, our ambition is to be a world-class player in the energy transition. We will only achieve this with the help of our employees and their commitment to better energy. We have always had the firm conviction that the women and men of TotalEnergies are the energy that drives our Company forward.

Offering Attractive and Motivating Working Conditions

For people to be motivated when going to work every day, they need a goal that gives meaning to their actions. TotalEnergies’ ambition is to produce the energy that the world needs, energy that is ever more affordable, clean, reliable and accessible to as many people as possible. This is also what drives the women and men of the Company, who work every day to meet these challenges.

At TotalEnergies, we believe that our employees’ fulfillment has its roots in the wealth of the experiences they are offered. Our operations in 130 countries and our presence across the entire oil, gas and solar value chain offer them countless opportunities to take on new jobs or to relocate. Throughout their career with the Company, employees can rely on their manager and their Talent Developer to support their professional development. They also have the opportunity to perfect and expand their expertise through access to numerous training courses.

We strive to ensure that our employees enjoy a caring and good-quality work environment in terms of safety, health and work-life balance. Our goal is to offer our employees the means to achieve professional fulfillment, particularly through a shared set of strong core values spanning safety, respect for each other, a pioneer spirit, standing together and being performance-minded.

With the “Better Together” program, we aim to give each and every employee a clearer idea of what our ambition entails so that their development is aligned with our business objectives. To achieve this, we have rolled out three workstreams:  

Talent Developers who work closely with all employees to provide individualized support and guide them along their career path. 

A transparent job posting system, giving everyone the freedom to apply for a new position after two years in their current role.  

A career review after three years with the Company, and then every subsequent ten years, to fine-tune career goals.  

An Individual Training Plan (ITP) to develop employees’ skills each time they start a new position.

Responsible managers who support each member of their team through organizational and job-related changes, ensuring a suitable solution is found for everyone. 

Regular, constructive feedback on team members’ performance following every significant project. 

manager training program backed up by coaching to ensure career-long skills development. 

Manager appraisals to set improvement objectives and assess management practices.

Initiatives to help every team create a safe, modern, pleasant and ergonomically friendly work environment.

social events budget for team get-togethers and celebrations after wins.  

Corporate concierge services to simplify employees’ daily lives, and “Bonjour” convenience stores on all sites with more than 100 people. 

Across-the-board availability of flexible working hours and home-working arrangements to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

Rollout of the “One Total, Be Simple” program to simpliy each employee’s work and boost efficiency.

Promoting and Enhancing Diversity

One of our values is respect for each other. Creating an inclusive environment in which everyone can express and develop their potential, from the moment they are hired and throughout their career, means ensuring that all our employees have the same opportunity to succeed, regardless of origin, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or affiliation with a political, religious, union, organization or minority group. This is our vision of diversity, which is an asset for our Company as well as for the individuals who embody it. Preserving and promoting this asset is another part of being a responsible employer.

TotalEnergies is strongly committed to making diversity a reality. That is why Patrick Pouyanné, TotalEnergies’ CEO, together with 50 other corporate leaders, signed a pledge promoting inclusion and diversity. We aim to accelerate diversity inside our Company, but also across the economy.

Nurturing Social Dialogue

Enabling our employees to achieve their full potential also involves listening to their aspirations, sharing our strategy with them, and empowering them to play a role in its construction. For this reason, dialogue with our employees and their representatives has a special place at TotalEnergies.

Most TotalEnergies' companies – even in countries where it is not a legal requirement – have employee representatives, most of whom are elected. They deal with the major issues facing the Company and the main concerns of staff, including safety, health, wages and training.

Staff representatives also play a role at the European level, where we continue to develop social dialogue through negotiations with the European trade union federations. A European works council, which acts as a single employee representation body, has also been established to provide information and a forum for exchanging views on the Company’s strategy in areas such as TotalEnergies’ social, economic and financial position, sustainable development, environmental and social responsibility and safety.

IndustriALL: Extending our Tradition of Social Commitment

In January 2015, to reinforce our commitment as a responsible employer, we signed a global agreement with the IndustriALL Global Union federation, which represents more than 50 million energy, mining, manufacturing and industrial employees in 140 countries. The agreement covers workforce safety, human rights and the strengthening of social dialogue. On the issue of gender equality, it works to ensure that maternity leave cannot have a negative impact on wages or career development.

Come and take part in a collective and human adventure


The future of energy represents a formidable challenge. At TotalEnergies, it is synonymous with an exciting personal adventure. Joining us means taking part in this collective and fulfilling adventure in which each person’s entrepreneurship, experience and creativity are combined to contribute to achieving our ambition of becoming the responsible energy major.
