ACCIONA always makes the utmost effort to look out for its people, and provides a safe, healthy and discrimination-free working environment with a long-term view of attracting and fostering talent.
ACCIONA wanted to be a pioneer in the application of effective policies to promote equal opportunities in all aspects. Because we understand it as the capacity to create professional surroundings in which the only criteria for professional development is a person's capacity and their will for advancement, without personal circumstances limiting them in any way whatsoever.
As part of the Sustainability Master Plan, ACCIONA has set an objective of achieving a workforce in which 3% are differently-abled people. In 2013 , ACCIONA had the equivalent of 3,55% of differently-abled people in the Spanish workforce.
ACCIONA hired in 2015, 213 people at risk of social exclusion, as a result of its close collaboration with the Integra and Red Cross foundations and agreements with the Consejo Superior de Deportes and other third-sector institutions.
Particular mention should be made of women who have suffered or are currently suffering gender violence, 37 women victims of gender violence were hire in 2015.
ACCIONA wants its employees to grow with the company and find ways to develop their skills. Training is vital in this regard and sustainability is part of it. Skills training features sustainability as an overarching element. ACCIONA's Virtual Campus offers general sustainability content. However, training in sustainability issues is particularly intense in our executive training modules.
ACCIONA has developed an MBA in Sustainable Economics for its managers and junior managers. Thus, the MBA is about sustainable growth patterns, encouraging quality employment, equal opportunities and social cohesion, respect for the environment and wise use of resources.
ACCIONA is well aware of the importance of raising the awareness of all its team on this issue.
Training is one of the prevention-related issues in which the largest amount of resources is invested. All divisions have implemented training and awareness-raising programs and have designed an annual training plan that includes requirements in training on occupational health and safety. In 2015, over 194.367 hours of training were given to employees.
In 2012, the Company approved the ACCIONA Bonus, a new variable remuneration program for ACCIONA employees taking into account the Company's financial results and individual targets based on objective and pre-established metrics.
It is worth mentioning that a minimum of 3,5% of the ACCIONA Bonus depends on targets linked to sustainability and identified for each division.
