Employee Health, Safety & Well-being
We know that supporting a flexible work environment is an important factor for our employees and operations. In 2021 we started piloting our New Ways of Working model, and in 2022 we successfully implemented a smart hybrid work model in most of our countries, providing more flexibility around hours and working locations including new and updated office spaces to Create, Collaborate, Connect and Celebrate.
Talent Management & Sustainable Engagement
We are people protecting people
We have built our Talent & Organisation strategy across three pillars, fully aligned with our mission:
- Building the most engaged, high-performance, accountable, diverse and best-in-class team.
- Creating a high-performance organisation and company culture through meritocracy and our strong DNA values.
Ensuring our colleagues believe in and live our DNA every day.
Our ‘STAR’ approach to performance management and career development is one of our key enablers for ensuring we have the best possible talent in every position. The approach is structured around four meaningful conversations that take place every year between managers and colleagues: Set priorities, Talk achievements, Accelerate your growth, and Reach your goals.
Growth and development is a key priority for us. We have robust professional programmes to help develop our people’s skills and capabilities. In the last year, over 80% of our colleagues completed at least one course, with more than 100,000 hours of online training completed in total.
Our primary measure of organisational health is our Sustainable Engagement survey, designed to help understand how engaged, energised, and enabled our people are - and we measure these results over time. The overall Sustainable Engagement Index was again above target (>80% favourable). This was our highest score ever, and up two points versus the year before.
Our continued efforts to make our company the best company to work with have been recognised by various prestigious awards and certifications. In 2022, Spain and Argentina were certified as Best Workplaces. Chile and Italy were recognised by Great Place to Work for the first time. Spain and France were certified Top Employers. And Spain also achieved a ranking in Forbes annual ’75 Best Companies to Work for’ and a spot in the top ten from Actualidad Económica ‘Best Companies of 2022.’
In 2022, no serious human rights claims or complaints were filed by our colleagues or third parties. We did not receive any fines, or penalties, or have to pay compensation for damages as a result of violations of social and human rights.
We support the employment rights of our colleagues to associate freely and bargain collectively. Over 80% of our employees are covered by external Collective Bargaining Agreements (CBAs) at the national or sector level. We give our colleagues the choice to associate according to their needs and preferences.
