Out of a total 11,500 companies, Sacyr joined the other 483 companies as a member of the index in 2023.
"Congratulations to the companies that are included in the 2023 GEI," said Peter T. Grauer, Chairman of Bloomberg and Founding Chairman of the U.S. 30% Club.
"We continue to see an increase in both interest and membership globally, reflecting a shared goal of transparency in gender-related metrics”, he added.
To construct the GEI, Bloomberg assesses gender equality practices in companies across five pillars: leadership & talent pipeline, equal pay & gender pay parity, inclusive culture, anti-sexual harassment policies, and external brand.
Some of the greatest challenges in traditionally male-dominated fields are opening the doors to female talent and ending the glass ceiling. Sacyr is above the industry average in indicators such as new hires, percentage of women in the workforce, and women in executive and middle management roles.
The company, that obtained the highest possible score in disclosure, positioned itself as the highest-scored in the transport infrastructure industry and got remarkable results in the ‘Equal pay & gender pay parity’ chapter.
“For Sacyr, this new milestone represents the recognition of our commitment to equality and talent, both cornerstones of the 2021-2025 Strategic Plan”, highlighted Patricia Martínez, Chief People Officer at Sacyr.
