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.

Since 2006, the company has worked alongside Adecco Foundation in the launch of social responsibility initiatives involving hiring people with disabilities, and other initiatives that raise awareness and make a social contribution.

Of particular note here is the Familia Plan for Ferrovial employees. It aims to improve the quality of life and facilitate the social integration and employment of family members with disabilities.

Other results of the collaboration with Adecco Foundation are social integration initiatives for people with disabilities, such as Sailing Schools to practice adapted sports.

Through the Integra Foundation, the company organized a photography exhibition involving major photographers as part of its work to raise awareness of the need for employment inclusion. The exhibition showed portraits of executives and employees from different companies, side by side with photos of people at risk of social exclusion who have been integrated into the companies' workforce. The aim was to show that, if given the chance, people who have suffered or suffer social exclusion can become part of the labor market, and are impossible to distinguish from any other workers. The partnership with this foundation has so far led to the integration of 167 people at risk of social exclusion. A number of different training initiatives have also been started up in the area of services.
