Diversity and Integration

WE ARE WORKING TOWARDS CULTURAL DIVERSITY AND DEVELOPING ACTIONS AT IBERDROLA FOR RAISING AWARENESS ON FUNCTIONAL DIVERSITY

Equality of opportunity is a strategic objective at IBERDROLA (non-discrimination and respect for diversity). To achieve this objective, we are fostering a favourable environment and encouraging personal and professional reconciliation. We are also supporting workers with a wide range of abilities, guaranteeing their effective occupation.

To do so, we have procedures in place to prevent any discrimination for reasons of: race, colour, gender, language, creed, political outlook, place of birth or social background, social status, indigenous background, disability, health, marital status, pregnancy, sexual orientation or any other condition of a person unrelated to the requirements for undertaking his or her job.

INITIATIVES FOR PROMOTING INTEGRATION

In our company, we support employees with functional diversity, promoting their integration into a business environment. To achieve this goal, the companies in our Group are adopting the measures necessary to adapt and simplify access to jobs for these professionals based on the requirements and characteristics of the job post and the needs of each specific situation.

Some actions currently underway are:

  • Family Planning. To assist employees who have families with some sort of disability, we offer this programme in Spain for simplifying the integration of these family members in the employment world through a personalised assistance plan.
  • Social aids. We provide this type of assistance to help with the social needs of our employees' children, spouse or couple so long as they have some sort of certified disability.
  • Comunica Service. We work with this video-interpretation alternative to handle enquiries made by users with hearing disabilities and offer them personalised advice
  • Summer camps. We organise these summer activities for children of our employees with functional diversity and even volunteer actions for integrating persons with different abilities.

Furthermore, IBERDROLA is one of the signatory companies of the Diversity Charter, where initiatives addressing functional diversity are being developed in partnership with other companies.

We have also designed measures to combat gender-based violence.
