Issues related to diversity have been unequivocally regulated in corporate documents, which refer to all companies comprising the Budimex Group. These include the “Principles of the Company's Responsibility Policy” of the Ferrovial Group, owner of Budimex. They oblige all employees of the Group to respect fundamental human rights, to promote equality, diversity and ensure a work-life balance. The second group-wide document is the “Principles for the Protection of Human Rights”, concerning the avoidance of discrimination, the promotion of equal opportunities and the recognition of values in diversity in the workplace. Another document is the “Code of Ethics”, which implements the assumptions of the indicated policies and prevents discrimination in the field of employment.
Budimex implemented the “Diversity Policy”, which refers to equal treatment due to gender, age, disability, health, nationality, political beliefs, form, scope and basis of employment, as well as committed to creating an atmosphere and organisational culture that ensures respect for all forms of diversity. The document deals also with recruitment, access to training courses and promotions, remuneration, combining professional duties with personal life, protection against mobbing and unfair dismissal. Budimex SA also breaks barriers connected with health state of its employees by hiring disabled people. In order to manage the Policy efficiently, the so-called anti-discriminatory and anti-mobbing monitoring was introduced, as well as a system of educational tools, training and workshops. The results of carrying out this Policy are reported to the Management Board every year.
