Female talent in Teknia

The Challenge

Everyone has different ways of approaching the challenges they face. Therefore workforcediversity and inclusion offer many benefits to companies, and are therefore a priority for Teknia. The industrial sector, due to the characteristics of the activity, has historically had a higher ratio of male employees. Therefore, Teknia undertakes a relevant role in equal opportunities in the labour market, within the framework of STEM studies and professional training.

Plan of action

Our code of conduct repudiates discrimination of people based on any grounds (gender, race, age or any other personal circumstances or condition). The number of women employed in the company is 35.62% at the end of 2022, which is higher than the average for the industry, which is 27% women, according to the Labour Force Survey 2021 for the manufacturing industry in Spain, carried out by the National Statistics Institute (Instituto Nacional de Estadística). In some of our factories, the percentage of female employees is even slightly higher compared to male employees, as is the case of Teknia Azuqueca (Spain), Uherský Brod (Czech Republic), Teknia Tepejí del Río and Teknia San Luis de Potosí (Mexico).

Impact Generation

  • 36% of women in the workforce. 8 percentage points higher than the average for the industry in Spain.
  • More female than males employess at the Teknia Azuqueca, Uherský Brod, Tepejí del Río, San Luis de Potosí factories.

“From my experience, when you are good at what you do, gender becomes irrelevant.”
