Ferrovial

Ferrovial - Integrated annual report 2013 / Commitment to disadvantaged groups

The company’s commitment to equal opportunities has led it to conclude a number of agreements that enable the integration of people with disabilities who are at risk of social exclusion.

The company has been working with various foundations and NGOs since 2002, especially with Adecco Foundation to promote the inclusion of people with disabilities, and the start-up of the Plan Familia for Ferrovial employees, which aims to improve the quality of life and facilitate the social integration and employment of family members with disabilities.

Last year Ferrovial joined the “Red de Empresas por una Sociedad Libre de Violencia de Género” (network of companies supporting a society with no gender-based violence), and this strengthens its commitment to raising public awareness and helping battered women find employment, as set out in the agreement signed with the Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equality, through the Integra Foundation. Thanks to the work with this foundation, 264 people from disadvantaged groups, especially battered women, have been able to find employment.
