FCC renews its commitment to the Diversity Charter

FCC has renewed its commitment to the Spanish Diversity Charter for the 2019-2021 period, in recognition for its equality policies, its commitment to social inclusion and to become an increasingly diverse and socially responsible company, promoting actions and projects that promote inclusion and equality through employment.

Diversity Management is a commitment of the General Human Resources Department, which aims to promote the necessary cultural change required to address the challenges that the company faces as a result of its growing internationalisation and to optimise how teams of people with diverse profiles are managed within the organisation.

FCC adhered to the principles of the Diversity Charter in July 2014, with the commitment to comply with a decalogue of principles and communicate it with these values:

  • Raise awareness about the principles of equal opportunities and respect for diversity.
  • Make progress to build a diverse workforce.
  • Promote inclusion.
  • Consider diversity in all people management policies.
  • Promote work-life balance by achieving the adequate work, family and leisure time balance.
  • Recognise the diversity of customers.
  • Extend and communicate the commitment towards employees.
  • Extend and communicate the commitment to suppliers.
  • Extend and communicate this commitment to administrations, business organisations, trade unions and other social agents.
  • Reflect the activities backing non-discrimination, as well as the results obtained.

The principles of the Diversity Charter adhere to the provisions of the Equality and Diversity Policy of the company, which establishes the integration of diversity as a central piece of its activities.

FCC has the vocation to roll out actions and programmes that promote equality, diversity and workplace integration in a proactive manner, with the purpose of contributing to the well-being of its people and to strengthen its links with the communities in which it is present and where it provides its services.

The FCC Group aims to create an organisational environment that matches the organisation's external diversity, which attracts, retains and empowers people of diverse profiles, who bring new options and points of view, creative solutions, and knowledge of cultural and economic diversity of markets, promoting a culture that allows it to establish a connection between the corporate values and the priorities and needs of the people that are part of FCC.

The Diversity Charter is an initiative of the Directorate of Justice of the European Commission for the development of its non-discrimination policies. The Diversity Foundation, sponsored by the Alares Foundation, is the only entity responsible for giving this stamp in Spain, which responds to a voluntary commitment code to support and promulgate the principles of the inclusion of diversity and non-discrimination at the workplace.

By joining this initiative, FCC is supporting the management of diversity as a business, social and legal imperative.

All for the right of all people, regardless of their age, origin, religion, sexual orientation, race, culture, disability or gender, to have the same opportunities to access, remain and be promoted at work, ensuring the correct family-work balance. In turn, this can enhance the quality of life and work of people.
