Diversity and inclusion have a long tradition at Bank Austria. We are convinced that diversity inspires and creates the right environment for innovation.
Therefore, we strive for a workplace culture that is inclusive and motivating.
We also live and promote this diversity internally, whether as part of programs to
- Erhöhung des Anteils von Frauen in Führungspositionen,
- Maßnahmen zur Vereinbarkeit von Beruf- und Privatleben,
- accessibility or through the
- UniCorns, Bank Austria's LGBTQI+ network.
We're committed to diverse and inclusive teams. Whether someone is talented has nothing to do with a person's particular culture, nationality, ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity, generation and experience. We are convinced of this and are therefore committed to a working environment in which everyone can develop freely and feel they belong.
We have been committed to a fair and positive working environment for all employees for years, with a strong focus on diversity and inclusion. In 2010, the Bank Austria Rainbow Group was founded, which even won the MERITUS Award in 2011 as an example of exceptional diversity management.
The achievement of our diversity & inclusion goals are supported by:
- Focus on how we approach candidates with a new employer brand strategy and our commitment to advertise open positions transparently
- Introducing several new training and learning programs to help raise awareness and deal with the unconscious biases we all have, as well as promote inclusion and our most promising female leaders
- Further development of our promotion and nomination process
- Continuation of our active support for the Disability Management Action Plan at UniCredit in Austria, we have successfully supported the goals of diversity and inclusion for many years through various networks initiated by employees, in particular our Bank Austria Women's Forum.
On our Diversity & Inclusion journey, we aim to win and hire candidates with diverse skills, promote the careers of our colleagues, retain and develop them, strengthen our performance-based compensation systems, and foster an inclusive culture overall.
