BME employees
Corporate and Social
Responsibility Report 2013
3.6. Equal opportunities, career advancement
and salary policy.
3.6.1. Diversity and equal opportunities
BME not only encourages equality, diversity and the
individuality of each employee, but has also fully imple-
mented the labour practices outlined in the United
Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and its
protocols. Additionally, in 2011 the group adhered to the
United Nations Global Compact.
The concept of gender equality is mainstreamed through
all human resources management policies, such as hiring,
recruiting, training, performance evaluation, promotion,
compensation, working conditions, work/life balance
issues and communications.
With the entry into force of the new statutory collective
labour agreement, BME has created an Equality and
Parity Committee in order to analyse the equality situa-
tion in group companies and implement any necessary
measures in that regard.
BME’s selection and hiring policies ensure diversity and
equal opportunities and eradicate any discriminatory
treatment, both in terms of physical access to work sta-
tions and with respect to occupying different positions
within the company. Personnel are selected first through
internal processes that ensure confidentiality, inde-
pendence and equal opportunities, and subsequently
through external channels.
To date, no incident linked to discrimination has occurred
at BME.
Neither BME’s business activity nor its geographic location
in Spain entail risks of episodes of involuntary or forced
labour or child labour, or of a breach of human rights.
In 2013, employees working for BME had to travel and
spend days outside Spain for company projects. In doing
so, their labour conditions were not modified.
BME upholds human rights in the performance of
company activities and requires that the suppliers ren-
dering security services at BME offices provide training
for their staff in this field.
Given the lack of risk in this area, BME has made no signif-
icant investment in which the clauses relating to human
rights were analysed.
