Equal opportunities, a strategic principle of the HR Policy of Grupo Espacio Industrial
At Grupo Espacio Industrial, equal opportunities for all staff is a strategic principle of our Corporate and Human Resources Policy. This in accordance with the definition that the corresponding Law establishes on that principle.
Organic Law 3/2007, of March 22, for effective equality between men and women, in its article 45, establishes the obligation to respect equal treatment and opportunities in the workplace by companies. To this end, measures must be adopted aimed at avoiding any type of labor discrimination between women and men, agreed with the legal representatives of the workers.
At Grupo Espacio Industrial we consider that it is essential to set and develop policies that integrate equal treatment and opportunities for all people, without directly or indirectly discriminating on the basis of sex, race, ideology, etc; as well as in the impulse and promotion of measures to achieve real equality in our organization.
For this reason, in all the areas in which we carry out our integral industrial services activity, we assume the principle of equal opportunities between people, paying special attention to indirect discrimination. A principle applicable from selection to promotion, through salary policy, training, working and employment conditions, occupational health, organization of working time and conciliation. We understand indirect discrimination as “the situation in which an apparently neutral disposition, criterion or practice places a person of one sex at a particular disadvantage compared to persons of the other sex.”
To advance in the achievement of real equality between people of both sexes in Grupo Espacio Industrial and, by extension, in society as a whole, we promote specific measures. These are included in an exhaustive Equality Plan, in relation to various matters:
- selection and hiring process
- professional classification
- professional promotion
- working conditions, including salary audit between women and men
- co-responsible exercise of the rights of personal, family and work life
- female underrepresentation
- prevention of sexual and gender-based harassment
