Sacyr, Sacyr Concesiones y Sacyr Servicios have renewed their Equality Plan with the ‘Federación de Industria, Construcción y Agro de UGT’ (UGT FICA) and the ‘Federación de CCOO del Hábitat’ (CCOO del Hábitat).
This is a new joint plan for the three companies (the Construction division renewed it last February), which will be in force for the next four years (2022- 2026) and it includes positive actions to improve female representation, improvements in key people management processes and new measures in the co-responsible exercise of the rights of personal, family and work life balance, among others. In addition, it will also include a follow-up commission that will oversee and assess the progress and application of the agreed-upon measures.
Patricia Martínez, Chief People Officer of Sacyr, highlighted of the Plan that “Sacyr’s commitment to equal access to opportunities for all genders and to diversity as a lever to the Group’s strategy”.
UGT FICA highlighted “the commitment acquired by signing this plan focuses on three objectives: the incorporation of women to responsibility roles, via the pursuit of female talent that will allow to promote their professional careers. Furthermore, it is critical to stress the commitment to the principle of pay transparency specifically developed for this plan. All in conjunction with the transversal application of equality policies in training and health at work make this “unique plan for several Sacyr Group companies” a significant advance compared to the previous plans.
On their end, CCOO Habitat said: “For our organization, this plan reflects the efforts and commitment to gender equality of all parts involved, as the plan defines important short, medium and long-term goals, as well as specific measures to apply to make gender equality in the company a reality”.
