Our values are guided by the principles of diversity and equal opportunities, total opposition to any practice of discrimination, and the promotion of a culture of social integration.
We have been part of the Business Forum for Gender Equality (IGEN) since 2014, an initiative of the Portuguese Commission for Equality in Labour and Employment (CITE). We have been making commitments in this context, having in 2017 approved the Plan for Equality for 2018, with the commitment to:
- create an internal and permanent group for reflection and action on gender equality;
- periodically carry out awareness-raising sessions related to the theme;
- promote development programmes for women, including career management guidance and support.
In 2017, we also held a series of conferences on diversity and gender equality, addressing how organisations are managing these issues.
In Spain, for example, we are among the 30 most commited companies to diversity and gender equality according to Intrama, a human resources consultant who prepares an annual study on Spanish businesses.
In addition to the gender equality, we are committed to a young talent attraction policy that largely results from our proximity to the academic world. The focus is on the Generation Galp trainee programme, which identifies and develops young people with high potential. In addition to several activities aimed at promoting the culture and values of the Company, this programme simultaneously manages the expectations for the future through career development plans and training. More than 80% of the trainees from the last three programmes remained in the Company after the second year.
