Our employees

The many challenges which we set ourselves every day have enabled our Group to grow into one of Europe's leading financial institutions.

We now have a presence in more than 22 countries on five continents, which allows us to assist our customers worldwide with their projects and provide them with UniCredit's expertise in every possible area of business.

These figures reveal one of our greatest strengths: diversity.

Diversity is one of our Integrity Charter's key aspects and the values on which it is based – freedom, fairness, respect, reciprocity, transparency and trust. Every day we apply all these principles in a concrete manner.

Our employees are the keys to our success!

We realise that we can only secure long-term, sustained growth if we invest in our employees. This is the only way we will be able to face the challenges presented by an increasingly complex market.

This is why we vigorously promote continuing professional development and offer all our employees numerous opportunities to regularly extend and specifically utilise their skills.

Our employee investment strategy is built on three pillars:

  • promoting and developing our Group identity in accordance with the fundamental values enshrined in our Integrity Charter;
  • promoting and developing leadership qualities by means of our "Executive Development Plan" (an employee development scheme that helps our organisation to better master daily challenges by investing in appropriate resources) and strengthening our core expertise;
  • promoting an informal method of working by forming relationship networks in which employees can exchange experiences and know-how.
  • These three cornerstones reflect how very seriously we take our employees' professional development and wellbeing. But we have a higher objective: we are absolutely determined to make our Group one of the most innovative forces in the European banking sector.

To achieve this we have instigated a variety of initiatives in five important areas:

  • Career opportunities
  • Professional development and performance review
  • Training opportunities
  • Employee commitment
  • Development of leadership qualities

These initiatives help us

  • to be a reliable, successful and valued employer;
  • to be an organisation guided and led by specific values;
  • to create a long-term vision and a steady course for sustained growth;
  • to offer a challenging work environment based on the principle of empowerment and which provides
  • opportunities for development and training in all areas of the financial world.

The Integrity Charter

Education and vocational training

Bank Austria places great emphasis on education and vocational training for each and every one of its employees.

In order to meet the challenges of the future, we invest a great deal in educating and training our employees. There is no better way to invest this money than in improving the specialised knowledge and expertise of our employees.

Bank Austria also makes a point of encouraging talented individuals and helping them to climb their own individual career ladder.

Leadership Development & Talent Management

Our Group's development in recent years means that we have an increasing need for new skills and expertise, so we can always keep one step ahead of developments in our highly competitive and swiftly changing industry.

To face up to these challenges we want to find and develop the best talent and give top notch experts the opportunity to deploy their expertise and experience in other countries too.

Another of our objectives is to offer our managers development opportunities that are geared to UniCredit's strategic objectives and that are based on the leadership model.

We have two structured, recurrent processes that are based on our Integrity Charter principles:

  • Talent Management Review for junior executives.
  • Executive Development Plan for management

Development and training

Our employees are the key to our success, which is why we vigorously promote your continuing professional development and offer you numerous opportunities for regular development and purposeful application of your skills.

Only if we invest in our employees will we be able to face the challenges presented by an increasingly complex market, thus ensuring sustained long-term growth.

Our strategy for investing in our employees is based on three pillars:

promoting and developing our Group identity in accordance with the fundamental values enshrined in our Integrity Charter;
promoting and developing leadership qualities as a result of our
"Executive Development Plan" and strengthening of our core expertise;
promoting an informal method of working by forming relationship networks, in which employees can exchange best practice, expertise and know-how.

These three cornerstones reflect how very seriously we take our employees' professional development and wellbeing.

But we have a higher objective: we are absolutely determined to make our Group one of the most innovative forces in the European banking sector.

The Joint Declaration on "Training, Learning and Professional Development" defines UniCredit's guidelines and principles that are meant to be a support for all the Employees and a point of reference for all strategies, activities and initiatives in the field of training, learning and professional development.
