Care Together by TotalEnergies, a worldwide program, mirrors TotalEnergies’ dedication to social responsibility towards its employees. Aside this dedication specific to each affiliate, TotalEnergies ensures compliance with high social standards for all its employees worldwide, irrespective of the legislation in force in any given country.

This way, Care Together by TotalEnergies contributes to the company’s ambition to develop a culture that fosters sustainable development for the benefit of the women and men of the Company, and in particular the well-being of its employees.

The program is based on concrete measures revolving around four pillars: social protection, health, the family sphere and working conditions.

Social protection: the Company ensures that its employees, wherever they are located, benefit from a social protection net by ensuring that they are covered by:
an adequate and reliable health insurance plan
a death benefit plan that is equal to at least two years of the gross reference salary.
Health: In order to protect its employees’ physical and mental health, a biennial health check-up is offered to all employees and a global prevention program for psychosocial risks has been put in place.
Family: In line with a neutral definition of the family,the Company guarantees a childcare leave of at least fourteen weeks to the primary parent at full basic pay and two weeks to the secondary parent. The Company also undertakes to grant the first parent, when returning from childcare leave, an increase equal to the average of individual increases received over the last three years.
Working environment and conditions: TotalEnergies promotes modern and attractive working conditions by adopting flexible working hours with clear rules, empowering its employees to take responsibility for the way they manage working from home as part of their day-to-day activities while fostering collective intelligence, delivering on their objectives, and working with their manager and teams. In its desire to innovate, TotalEnergies has been implementing Green Fridays since January 2023. This innovation liberates employees from any collective meetings scheduled by management every other Friday and allows them to organize their work.
“Care Together by TotalEnergies reflects our intention to make TotalEnergies a company that is a good place to work together. We believe that employees’ well-being is a key factor in our performance and attractiveness. This program increases our social commitments and establishes us as a responsible company for all our employees by promoting high standards worldwide.” said Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and CEO of TotalEnergies.
