Iberdrola has become the first multinational company to obtain the Healthy Company Certificate awarded by the Spanish Association for Standardisation and Certification (AENOR) for its worldwide activities, in compliance with the World Health Organization (WHO) model.
This multi-site certification, which was awarded by AENOR, has been validated for all the companies of the group, which currently has employees in 25 countries. The certification takes into account a number of variables including: physical environment, health, psychosocial and community.
The recognition confirms the commitment by the group's management to implementing and promoting a continuous improvement process to protect and promote the health and safety of all professionals and the sustainability of the workplace. For example, Iberdrola offers its team numerous measures to improve their well-being and work-life balance including: health plans, sports facilities, a medical and physiotherapy service at a large number of its work centres and awareness campaigns, among others.
Similarly, the company has just implemented a healthy company management system, based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act methodology, which will initially run for three years, up to 2022.
Obtaining this important certification is part of the Iberdrola group's global commitment to quality, which covers the excellent management of all processes and resources as an essential lever in creating value for people: shareholders, customers, employees and other company stakeholders.
