FCC signs a cooperation agreement with the Red Cross

Leopoldo Pérez Suárez, General Secretary of the Spanish Red Cross, and Francisco Martín Monteagudo, General Director of Human Resources at FCC, have signed a cooperation agreement to promote labour insertion for female victims of domestic violence.

FCC signs a cooperation agreement with the Red Cross

Under this 1-year agreement, which can be extended, both entities will coordinate and establish a joint framework for cooperation and actions to facilitate labour market access to women at risk of social exclusion, especially female victims of domestic violence.

This commitment will be implemented primarily through the following actions:

  • Job brokering, focused on pre-selection of candidates to fill vacancies in FCC's business areas.
  • Skills training, to improve employability.
  • Awareness raising about domestic violence among FCC employees.

This agreement represents progress in helping these women join the labour market, since a job is much more than a source of income for them: it is a move towards personal autonomy and psycho-social recovery.

Part of FCC's firm commitment to social and labour insertion of groups at risk of social exclusion, especially female victims of domestic violence. The company has also established an agreement with the Ministry of Health, Social Policy and Equality to this same end. Additionally, several Group companies have signed Equality Plans with a view to enhancing diversity and equal opportunities for women at FCC.
