IBERDROLA's human workforce has been growing significantly over the past decade. After friendly integrations of Scottish Power, Energy East (now IBERDROLA USA) and the Brazilian Elektro, the amount of personnel working at the Group has reached a figure of 30,583(1) employees in nearly 40 countries.
This multicultural group responds to the commitment we have to our main value: people and their integrity. Thus, here at IBERDROLA, we undertake measures favouring:
|LOYALTY||The search to match the interests of the company with those of the employee, thus generating reciprocal confidence|
|TEAM SPIRIT||Creation of teams from a foundation of trust, credibility and example, fostering communication and mutual support|
|WORK||Creating the maximum value for our clients, shareholders, professionals and the company overall|
|CAPACITY||Knowledge, combined with commitment and getting results constitutes our competitive edge. Everyone shares the responsibility for seeking to enhance and evoke the best not only from ourselves but also from our collaborators|
|HONESTY||Creating value for everyone in a sustainable way requires ethical, honest and socially-responsible actions|
These principles, together with the IBERDROLA´s commitment to quality employment, training and professional development, position us as the energy company favourite among employees (merco Personas Ranking 2012(2)), and as a socially committed 21st Century company (merco Responsables Ranking 2012(2)).
The actions of all the professionals who work for the Company, and particularly those related to the defence of human rights, are regulated by the Code of Ethics of Iberdrola, S.A. and its Group of Companies.
Likewise, the practices of the Company match:
These universal principles and the company's General Corporate Social Responsibility Policy [PDF] play a guiding role in the actions of IBERDROLA and its professionals to guarantee the eradication of any discrimination on the grounds of race, colour, gender, language, creed, political outlook, place of birth or social background, social status, origins, disability, health, marital status, pregnancy, sexual orientation or any other factor.
