The EFR certification highlights Cepsa's commitment with people, new ways of working and work-life balance, with the aim of promoting individual responsibility, a results-driven working environment, and continuous improvement. Cepsa now has a wide range of work-life balance measures, which include flexible working hours, remote working or the development of health campaigns. In addition, Cepsa also invests in internal mobility as the main platform for professional development. As such, in 2016 62.26% of job vacancies were met internally.   

During the presentation ceremony of the certificates Carlos Morán, Director of Human Resources at Cepsa, stressed that: "Cepsa firmly believes in work-life balance as a vehicle for achieving greater motivation, commitment, reputation and efficiency in the daily work of our professionals. This certification reaffirms the fact that work-life balance is already part of Cepsa's culture and, in addition, it is now also part of our management."

EFR is an international program that responds to a new social, work and business reality based on flexibility, respect and mutual commitment. The Másfamilia Foundation promotes the EFR certification program, which is unique in the area of work-life balance thanks to the tools that it offers providing a simple and effective methodology to enable work-life balance processes within companies.
