With this in mind and knowing that gender equality is a key element to guarantee social well-being and development, Travel Excellence has engaged to carry out actions to promote equal opportunities and to ensure gender equity in the company, through the Managing Policy.
We are committed to promote a productive work environment supporting gender equality and a better quality of life for our work team. In addition, we encourage the persons and companies that work with us to reproduce some of these best practices. To meet these challenges, we undertake continuous improvement on the following topics:A. Labour relationships in compliance with the law, ensuring:
Travel Excellence stands out for being a leading company in the country in the incorporation of the Norm 38-01-01: 2015: Management system for gender equality in the labor sphere, regulated by INTECO and INAMU. Within this management system, the company has integrated changes in the operation of its operations.
We have distinguished ourselves by implementing advanced management processes and creatively designing a gender equality management system.
The company has a Gender Equality Policy in which we assume responsibility for labor relationships within a productive environment and quality of life for the work team. We have an Internal Regulation that provides an extended maternity leave, extended breastfeeding time and a paternity leave; as well as family leave permission for various and justified reasons.
In a very committed way, it assumes a policy of attention and denunciation of situations of sexual harassment andwork harassment, with investigative commissions that watch over the attention of the situation. We discourage any manifestation of gender-based violence and accompany any denunciation process in which the worker is found.
Travel Excellence undertakes permanent actions to prevent any potential sexual harassment situation inside our team or involving our clients. If any incident ever happened, the affected client is encouraged to communicate to our headquarters or our 24/7 line, and an internal affairs investigation is to be performed. If required, we may also follow up to any denounce placed to authorities against third parties. Our main goa is to prevent any situation, and if ever required to address diligently any situation materialized for reasons out of our control.
There is a Gender Equality Program in which, among other actions, we seek the integral health of our staff by ensuring facilities and equipment according to the needs of both women and men in their diversity. This is achieved through bringing them space for physical activity, having times of relaxation and opportunities of coexistence.
We also seek to influence our service providers by encouraging them to adopt good practices in gender equality. We aim for continuous improvement with the conviction that addressing this issue is fundamental to human well-being and development. We ensure that Travel Excellence, in terms of gender equality, provides experiences beyond senses.
