María Dionis, Chief HR Officer of Ferrovial, has received the “Hudson-ABC Award
for Human Resources management” in the “Companies with over 2,500 employees” category for driving the implementation of Coffee, the internal social network that acts as a platform for collaboration and knowledge exchange among Ferrovial's professionals. Another six projects reached the finalist phase in the ninth edition of these major awards, all of them based on the idea of how companies can prepare for the change of cycle and the future challenges to transform people and team management.
The digital transformation in HR
According to María Dionis, General Manager of Human Resources at Ferrovial, “the implementation of this collaborative platform has transformed the way our professionals work and this has resulted in more open communication with the contribution of innovative ideas. In short, it has unearthed a collective intelligence capable of transforming the company, so it is better prepared to face future challenges. The level of employee commitment also increases, as they feel part of a whole”.
The Hudson-ABC Awards for Best HR Manager aim to boost the positioning of the Human Resources area
as a strategic pillar in companies, recognising best practices in people and team management led by HR managers. This annual award is honorary and the panel is made up entirely of HR executives. Every year, these awards address a different topic and this year's was “Preparing the company for a new environment”.
