Our concept of human resources is "the people that move us are the people that work for us". Therefore, our human value and commitment is to offer the possibility of growth for our employees, both personal and professional, to create a better day to day for us and our customers". At Vectalia, we don't want to work day to day to cover job positions: we want to work with unique individuals that share our values. We know that we need people that can continue to achieve personal success, which mean success for our company, and we do it with respect for diversity, equal opportunities and the development of talent. We believe that the people who work with us are a reflection of the society in which we live, our customer's society. For this reason, we choose people that understand the expectations of our customers, identify with our ideas and values, and who are also willing to work to make them a reality. Vectalia has a management system driven by objectives, directed toward cascading goals. This can be seen from the definition of company objectives to the contribution of each position in the company. By owning these defined objectives, implication and achievements are maximized. We adhere to Management by Competencies policies, where CORE and specific competencies are measured. First, we measure those of the employee and then, those of the manager. The gaps are identified, and this is where our Training and Development Policy enters into place. We ensure TRANSPARENCY, sharing the maximum amount of information possible with the team, so that it may focus on its areas of improvement, with the guidance and support of its management.
- Prevention of occupational risks
The vision of creating a better day to day for our employees includes the improvement of work conditions and the creation of safe and healthy work spaces in order to achieve a high level of safety and health in the workplace. In addition to a Prevention Service in the Technical Department, we have incorporated a position that is "responsible for the prevention of occupational risks" in each of the Service and Transport Divisions at Vectalia. It is a basic figure for the integration of this prevention as it, drives communication and awareness in the area of prevention, training and "in situ" teaching of employees, applying prevention policies and periodically revising the conditions of safety and health for each job position.
- A new policy for the prevention of occupational risks with the following objectives
- Minimization of the number of accidents
- Integration of prevention principles in all processes and activities
- Creation and maintenance of an authentic culture of prevention that ensures:
- Participation and commitment with prevention on all levels
- Efficient communication that motivates employees to carry out their functions in a safe manner
- A recognition system for employees to promote and make this prevention culture a reality
The main risks that we encounter are those derived from the manual handling of loads, injuries from the manual handling of objects, falls, and accidents to and from the workplace. Throughout this last year, we have been able to reduce the accident rate at our offices and work centers, recording a positive tendency in the last four years thanks to the measures put into place. We have designed a three-year ergonomic improvement plan based on job function and accident analysis. This plan contains measures divided into the following five areas: training, technical improvements, organizational measures, communication and awareness. This plan will be implemented over upcoming years.
