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 people with disabilities. In 2018 , ACCIONA had the equivalent of 3,86 % of people with disabilities in the Spanish workforce.
ACCIONA runs job insertion programmes for people at risk of social exclusion. In 2018 the company hired 212 people, 21 of whom had been victims of gender violence. The agreements were carried out with different associations such as Cruz Roja, Paideia and SEPE.
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.
In 2018, the second edition of the ACCIONA Sustainability Course was launched, available at the ACCIONA University for over 10,500 employees from 41 countries. Since its launch, a total of 12,309 training hours in Sustainability have been given to ACCIONA’s employees.
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 2018, over 339,330 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.
In 2017, the biennial global engagement study was launched according to AON engagement model. The objective is to know the degree of commitment of the people that make up our team.
