Acting as a Role Model
We believe in providing an environment where people can be themselves so they can perform at their best. We want to create a great and inclusive place to work through promoting inclusion and providing colleagues with development opportunities.
In 2018, BNP Paribas signed a global Agreement on fundamental rights and global social framework with UNI Global Union. Milestone of our Diversity policy, this agreement reflects our unwavering commitment to become an even more responsible employer, by offering every employee a fair and inclusive work environment, regardless of their gender, age, origin, sexual orientation or disability. Fully aligned with BNP Paribas 2020 Engagement Manifesto, this agreement applies to the Group’s 200,000 employees worldwide, providing us a set of common social foundations, with concrete and measurable commitments.
Creating a great colleague experience
Creating a great colleague experience is important to us. Our human resources policy encourages the personal fulfilment, career growth, and commitment of our colleagues.
Through our ‘My Journey’ programme we provide opportunities for growth and development so colleagues can be the best they can be and we’re very proud of so many colleagues who go on to have long careers with us, progressing through the business.
A place to be yourself
Creating an inclusive and welcoming workplace where people can be themselves is very much part of our culture. That’s why we embrace our differences and actively encourage diversity.
From being a Disability Confident employer to our Pride, Multicultural and Women in Business colleague networks, we create a level playing field for all.
Mental Health matters
We understand the importance of people taking care of their physical and mental well-being. That’s why we signed the Time to Change employer pledge in 2018 as we want to be part of the positive change in how people think and act about mental health. We also have mental health first aiders to help support and guide those who might be struggling so there’s always a listening ear.
Commitment to Gender Equality
Opportunity should be for everyone, which is why we are committed to a number of initiatives including our Women in Business network that aims to drive the achievement of equality for women in banking and finance. We harness the diversity of thoughts, experiences and skills of our colleagues and support many initiatives that address our gender gap. Check out how we’re working to actively address our pay gap here.
Women in Finance Charter
Convinced of the power of women to transform the company, we act to fight gender discrimination at every level of the company, from gender pay gap reduction to the promotion of parity in Executive Committees. All around the world, our mentoring programs and networks help women developing their leadership inside BNP Paribas Personal Finance. At HR corporate level, we also implemented a dedicated mentoring program to reinforce gender diversity in leadership.
