Equality Plan

IBERDROLA's Equal opportunity and reconciliation policy [PDF]Note (1) promotes undertaking to equality between men and women in matters of: 

- Access to employment

- Training

- Career advancement

- Work conditions

The Equality Plan of IBERDROLA allows us be at the vanguard of corporate fabric by including measures to safeguard victims of gender-related violence. In addition, IBERDROLA was the first IBEX-35 company to implement a shorter workday with no lunch break in Spain.

Within the framework of our commitment to equality and in defence of the family, we wield significant measures enabling the possibility of truly reconciling the personal and professional aspects in our lives. In Spain, these are some of the most salient:

CONTINUOUS WORK DAY The first IBEX-35 company to implement the shortened work day with no lunch break in Spain. Work day flexibility extends 1.45 hours and includes the possibility of an earlier departure on Friday from 14.00
FLEXIBLE REDUCTION OF THE WORK DAY Five hours daily until the first birthday of employee’s child, without this affecting the employee’s salary.
LEAVE Up to four years for the care of children and dependents, including the possibility to add days of leave in case of serious illness or hospitalization of a relative up to the second degree
