OUR MISSION WITH PEOPLE:
93 % of our staff is covered by the collective agreement.
ELIX is governed by the General State Collective Agreement for the Chemical Industry and the 3rd Complementary Agreement 2021-2023. As of 31 December 2022, 93% of ELIX employees are covered by this agreement, while the remaining 7%, made up of senior managers, are covered by specific agreements.
1. All of Elix’s staff is in Spain, at the headquarters and at the production plant in La Canonja.
2. With the exception of this table, the rest of the indicators shown in this section do not include external workers, since we do not manage them
3. Included in the total number of employees are those who are semi-retired; these employees have not been included in the rest of the tables since, despite continuing to work for ELIX, their dedication is different from that of the rest of the employees.
4. Persons employed by subcontractors and who carry out logistics, maintenance, engineering, technological and cleaning work.
OUR TEAM BY CONTRACT TYPE
OUR TEAM BY TIMETABLE
In 2022 we have maintained practically the same staff as in 2021 (one less person). 100% of our staff works full time.
ELIX is committed to a hybrid flexible working schedule.
ELIX operates a hybrid flexible working schedule for those positions which, by their nature, allow for this flexibility to be incorporated. 2022 was the first year that ELIX operated this model, which combines aspects of remote work (1 or 2 days) and office work with a degree of flexible hours at the beginning and end of the day.
In this regard, we have a Regulation on flexitime, remote working and teleworking for employees.A fin de evaluar el grado de resultado y el funcionamiento del sistema, se ha creado una Comisión de Seguimiento específica que se reúne periódicamente (con carácter general, de forma trimestral o siempre que los miembros lo requieran).
ELIX has drawn up a Guide to Good Practice to ensure the successful implementation of the new hybrid flexible working schedule.
Recognition of the workforce’s commitment and creation of new clubs.
In 2022, ELIX held its 1st Recognition Gala aimed at thanking all those employees considered a fundamental part of the company’s success.
Within the framework of the mission of recognizing and promoting the professional and personal development of employees, two new clubs were presented during the gala: ELIX 25 and ELIX NOVAS 3.
The ELIX 25 club was created with the aim of recognizing and highlighting the fidelity, loyalty and commitment of all those employees who have been at ELIX for more than 25 years.
ELIX NOVAS 3 aims to bring together those employees who have been at ELIX for 3 years or less.These clubs will be launched in 2023.
We have a training and development system in place that focuses on the personal and professional growth of the company’s workforce. There is a procedure in place that ensures that all the training needs of the workforce are managed and carried out efficiently and in a manner appropriate to each situation.
TRAINING HOURS BY TYPE
