In 2016, for the third year running, BNP Paribas has obtained ‘Top Employer Europe’ certification. The Group was awarded this prestigious European label, conferred by the Amsterdam-based Top Employers Institute, after obtaining local Top Employer certification in seven separate countries. This year Luxembourg and Spain join Belgium, France, Italy, Poland and Turkey. The Group’s establishments in all those countries are due to receive their individual national certification at a formal ceremony this month.
This seal of approval recognises the high quality of BNP Paribas Group Human Resources policy and the good working conditions which enable employees to develop both personally and professionally. Surveys among staff revealed three areas where the Group received particularly high scores, surpassing last year’s ratings: talent management, company culture and career management.
BNP Paribas clearly stands out as ‘a good place to work’, providing an inspiring and motivating environment for Group employees. Diversity and inclusiveness are values that we take seriously at BNP Paribas, as evidenced by thriving staff networks set up to promote them, including Pride, MixCity, Happy Men and Afrinity. By encouraging openness and receptivity to others, the Group is constantly seeking to improve the well-being of employees and cohesiveness among all staff.
Late last year, BNP Paribas set out its vision, mission and values, which all regard people development as a central factor in Group performance. The ‘BNP Paribas Way’ is the outcome of a collaborative effort involving everyone from Group General Management to staff all over the world.
Our staff work in a highly motivating environment where everyone is treated with fairness and respect. A recent worldwide internal survey revealed that 83% of our employees say they are proud to work for BNP Paribas.
In 2015, BNP Paribas recruited close to 20,000 new staff worldwide. Hiring was brisk in France, where the Group took on 3,000 people on a permanent basis. BNP Paribas recruitment targets, both in France and worldwide, remain at these levels for the year 2016.
