Every 3 December, the rights and concerns of people with disabilities come under the spotlight: on the international day of people with disabilities. Under the motto (and hashtag) #PurpleLightUp, participants promote awareness around the world. Everyone can and should participate.
UniCredit Bank Austria is also involved in promoting the interests of people with disabilities. Each of the 122 branches of UniCredit Bank Austria is organised to be accessible well beyond what is required by law. And Bank Austria belongs to the 22 percent of companies in Austria who meet the legally prescribed quota for employees with disabilities. We currently have 300 employees with disabilities working for us.
In the Disability Performance Check, UniCredit Bank Austria achieved the highest ranking of all domestic companies, with 87 percent of all available points. This makes UniCredit Bank Austria the leading company in Austria today in the areas of accessibility and inclusion - and we occupy a leading position as a financial service provider in continental Europe.
