Equality Plan and other policies

Equality Plan

In January 2020 we signed our Equality Plan, to go on fostering equal opportunities and diversity in our workforce, as well as building up the presence of women in management positions and reinforcing work-life balance measures.

This agreement expands our previous Equality Plan, signed in 2011, which positioned us among the leading organisations in Europe in terms of our commitment to diversity and transparency.

The general principles of the Plan include dissemination among the workforce of the value of diversity and of the equality and work-life balance policies, as well as efficient time and meeting management and the use of a non-sexist communication model.

The new Equality Plan comes with a series of protocols attached specifying how to act in areas linked to equality and work-life balance.

Policy of Inclusion for People with Disabilities

The Equality Plan signed in 2020 was complemented by the signature of a Policy of Inclusion for People with Disabilities, which recognises the importance of functional diversity in training teams and formally sets the goal of fostering equal opportunities for people with an officially recognised disability.

The measures in this agreement include a specific assessment of each job to be taken up by a person with disability in order to ensure that it is suited to their needs, as well as various permissions and measures so that employees covered by the protocol can meet any medical needs related to their disability and can use the means necessary to do their job in the workplace, such as sign language, braille, accessible means of communication and even, if the disability requires it, coming in with helper animals.
