Exolum’s commitment to create a more just and equal society

To achieve this, Exolum works on three key values integrated into our strategic plan: diversity, equity and inclusion.

Diversity
Diversity

We believe in diverse teams, where all backgrounds are represented, as a means of contributing to and enhancing our culture and values.

Equity
Equity

We strive to understand everyone’s circumstances and thus offer opportunities tailored to each person, ensuring equality in all teams.

Inclusion
Inclusion

We create safe spaces where everyone, regardless of their origin and uniqueness, feels secure, included and listened to.

Our contribution to diversity, equity and inclusion in all our processes is reflected across the board in commitments that contribute to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We accomplish this with actions that prioritise the health and well-being of people (SDG3), create a space that guarantees decent work for all (SDG8), gender equality (SDG5), promote quality education (SDG4) and reduce inequality (SDG10).

In addition to the above, there are the Human Resources policy measures and collective bargaining agreements facilitan la conciliación y el bienestar de los empleados that facilitate work-life balance and the well-being of our employees, and which aim to strike a real balance between the work and personal lives of the people who work at Exolum. Reduced working hours in summer, unpaid and extended leave to care for family members and remote working are just some of the measures that have helped Exolum to obtain Family Responsible Company (EFR) certification with a ‘B+ Proactive’ rating.

To ensure that all this work is effective, the company’s annual targets include ESG indicators to help us measure the level of compliance with these initiatives and to set priorities for the future. In this regard, we have set ourselves the target of 27% of women in management positions by 2027, and to increase the incorporation of diverse profiles (gender, age, nationality, etc.) in all countries.

This is our commitment to...
...teams: our commitment to De&I improves employee satisfaction and helps us to attract and retain the best talent.
...customers: our customers are diverse and this challenges us to continue innovating to drive continuous improvement and offer new products and services.
...the communities in which we operate: our commitment to sustainability drives us to be leaders, having a positive impact on the environment.

Initiatives that add up...

We strive to ensure the different dimensions of diversity

In the words of the people who
are part of Exolum:

“I am proud to belong to the Women in Movement group and I hope it grows in the future. Together, we will make Exolum a better place to work”
“For me, diversity is an important lever for accomplishing our ... purpose because it adds value to the organisation, encourages innovation and increases employee engagement, in addition to making us better people and Exolum a better company. When we created the Women in Movement (WIM) group in 2019, we were aiming to create interest groups to promote actions aimed at increasing diversity, driven by employees’ own needs. While the initial focus was on gender, it has evolved towards a much broader concept of diversity. I am proud to be part of this movement and I hope it grows much more in the future. Together we will make Exolum a better place to work.”

“Cultural diversity enriches any society because it introduces ... new ideas and ways of thinking and facilitates innovation. It also generates empathy, promotes respect and teaches us about issues that otherwise might not have crossed our minds.”

“Diversity and inclusion means welcoming, understanding and accepting people who may be different from you”
“Diversity and inclusion means welcoming, understanding and accepting people ... who may be different from you physically, mentally, spiritually or racially. We all come with preconceived ideas and judging is a human instinct. It is easier to be attracted to the 'similar and familiar,' but there are times when we should try to learn about the unfamiliar.”
