Dominion engages in business relations with people and organisations that form part of its social ecosystem in a seamless and transparent fashion. It strives to become a transforming agent in those communities it operates in, making progress and creating social welfare by means of its activities by creating jobs, hiring suppliers, building relationships with customers, paying taxes, and improving the quality of life of those people affected by its business operations and by projects which directly affect the communities. Dominion collaborates with the communities based on its community development activities, the main emphasis of which being education.
The management of human resources takes on particular significance in a Global Company such as Dominion. Accordingly, Dominion sees its professionals as a strategic asset and it has designed and implemented a human resources management framework that promotes corporate efficiency and purposes by conveying the corporate culture, values and policies as they appear in the Fundamental Principles of Human Rights.
In line with all this, the management of human resources is governed by respect for diversity, equal opportunities and non-discrimination, promotion of decent, quality employment, rejection of child and forced labour, respect for freedom of association and collective bargaining, and by the alignment of professional interests with the Company's strategic objectives.

Committed to diversity
Dominion considers diversity as a cornerstone for Human Resources. This diversity and internationalisation creates a competitive advantage over other companies in the sector, whereby it can appeal to and retain the best professionals.
Dominion has direct staff in 23 countries, with representation across 73 nations, all of which contributes with added value in a multi-cultural environment.
Dominion's commitment to promoting women in managerial positions, which increased by 50% in 2019. This is a noteworthy achievement in light of the masculinisation associated with the sectors that Dominion works in and the gender bias in those countries where it boasts the most presence.
Dominion is a fine example of generational diversity, meaning that, at present, four generations of professionals are working together, naturally integrated into the group and contributing according to their level of experience. Older generations contribute to and teach younger generations with their experience in the form of mentoring schemes. The younger generations contribute in the fact that they are better prepared for entrepreneurship and digitalisation. In 2019, 22.24% of the total workforce was under the age of 30, which is more than the figure for the previous year.
Technology-based coordination of a diverse workforce
Dominion relies on technology to manage an extremely diverse workforce, geographically, sectorially and culturally speaking.
Also, given the fact that Dominion's identity, with digitalisation being one of the cornerstones of the 4 "Ds" governing the company, People and Culture has strongly invested in capturing and recruiting technological expertise, and this has become one of the goals for Dominion's future growth and progress.
Investing in occupational safety
Companies must make occupational safety a critical concern, but Dominion strives to establish this as one of its distinguishing features, extending its strict standards to all the regions and sectors it operates in, relying heavily on digitalisation.
Our Positive Footprint
A significant portion of Dominion's business involves supplying its customers with solutions which improve the communities it operates in. This is the case with sanitary equipment, civil protection projects or with improving access to communications or the electricity supply.
All of the above are grounds for asserting that Dominion has a positive footprint.
ESIA experts for large projects
For large projects, known as 360 projects, and depending on the project's characteristics and the customer's requirements, Dominion can also perform complex environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA: Environmental and Social Impact Assessment), performed pursuant to the strictest international standards (IFC).
A sustainable supply chain
Dominion makes its Supplier Code of Conduct available to its main suppliers, requesting that they not only sign adhesion documents, but also provide sufficient information regarding the measures they are taking.
Customers: long-term relationship
Over a thousand companies around the world are benefiting from Dominion's comprehensive range of multi-technical services and engineering solutions to improve the efficiency of their production processes. Moreover, millions of people also have access to the "one stop shop" household offer. The management is different in each case, but both involve the pursuit of excellence and a long-term relationship built on trust.
Education: a key factor in our social commitment
Dominion's community projects focus on technology education, consistent with the guidelines set out by the Corporate Social Responsibility Committee.
This approach has allowed for a more consistent and Company-related form of community development and has also given rise to a wide range of potential forms of interaction and greater visibility.
