We support our colleagues throughout their professional lives by listening to their needs, valuing their skills, implementing training programmes and development plans and promoting diversity, inclusion and welfare policies.
In line with our two core values: Ethics and Respect, we believe in creating an engaging and positive working environment where everyone can actively contribute to our success.
We have issued global policies against harassment, sexual misconduct, bullying and acts of retaliation.
These policies lead to a greater awareness of unacceptable behaviours and promote a 'speak up' culture where all employees feel listened to and protected when reporting any suspected misconduct.
We strive to provide our employees with an extensive welfare offer to meet their health and family needs, as well as an increasing focus on personal needs which may change during the life cycle.
Our Millennial Board is composed of colleagues aged between 22 and 32 years, from different areas of the Group and of eight different nationalities. It meets quarterly to share millennials' views on banking topics and to explore innovative ideas and solutions. They contribute to specific topics such as the attraction and management of the millennial generation, ethics and sustainability. In their role, they oversee the comprehensive review and implementation of the more than 1,200 initiatives proposed by our employees for a more sustainable future.
We strive to be an employer of choice, investing in attracting, managing and developing talent. We want to be a company where people can fully deploy their skills, abilities and qualities.
To guarantee sustainable support for the transformation of the Group, we continue to invest in the best available talent on our markets.
We invest in initiatives to foster the professional development of colleagues and to ensure that they can support UniCredit's objectives.
Thanks to our investments in professional skills development, we achieved a total of more than 30 hours training per capita in 2019.
Value diversity and inclusion
UniCredit remains committed to ensuring an equal opportunity workplace where people of all ages, genders and cultural backgrounds can contribute to our success. In line with our two core values: Ethics and Respect, we listen to the needs of our diverse workforce to create a better and more accessible working environment, based on inclusion.
We build awareness to foster an inclusive culture, through learning modules to support our executives in developing an inclusive leadership style and online training on how to recognise and tackle our unconscious biases.
UniCredit has consistently invested in supporting the growth and development of female colleagues in the organisation.
We have a Global Policy on Gender Equality in place, which sets out principles and guidelines to ensure a level playing field throughout the organisation.
In 2019, UniCredit launched its first Diversity and Inclusion Week, during which around 13,600 employees explored the topic.
Around 80 initiatives in 15 markets took place including workshops, testimonials and training courses involving our colleagues and their families, external experts and non-governmental organisations.
