Developing and engaging our people responsibly
• Promotion of diversity and inclusion in the workplace
• A good place to work and responsible employment management
• A learning company supporting dynamic career management
People lie at the heart of BNP Paribas’ corporate social responsibility approach. As a result, one of BNP Paribas’ key challenges is to support each of its persons from the moment they join the company and throughout their career within the Group. We aim to promote equal opportunities for all and so enable new talent to flourish and benefit society.
Diversity and inclusion in the workplace are central to our values and our ambition is to ensure every individual feels welcome, safe and respected and has equal opportunities for career advancement. Having a diversified workforce is a driver of openness, innovation and creativity. We have established internal policies to combat discrimination and we encourage our employees to create employee networks around the topics they feel closer to, in order to raise awareness and promote discussion and healthy debate. In Portugal we currently have e active employee networks – Pride (LGBTQ), MixCity (gender equality and work-life balance) and All Abroad (to make integration easier to non-Portuguese employees), all sponsored by senior managers and having a seat in the local Diversity Council.
Lastly, and as an ever increasing number of our employees are actively seeking to create positive change, we facilitate their commitment offering regular corporate volunteering opportunities, but also through the Help2Help programme, with which we offer them the opportunity to obtain financial support to the NGO’s they already cooperate with in their personal free time.
