We have chosen to invest in the development of our personnel and involve them in order to safeguard the quality of their work and employment.
The respect of the identity and dignity of every employee is essential to the development of a working environment based on mutual trust and loyalty. A positive working climate is promoted, prizing individuality and interpersonal relations and promoting a strong sense of belonging and team spirit.

We are over 21,000 employees, almost all with permanent contracts, with an average age of about 49 years and an average length of service of over 22 years. About 2 out of 3 people work in the commercial network.
In 2020 we renewed the personnel development model, which promotes professional growth while respecting the peculiarities, skills and ambitions of people, and we continued to invest in training to accompany growth of people and the organization. Professional development is accompanied by a focus on wellbeing and involvement, integral components of the Group’s new People Strategy, which places people at the centre of business growth.
Diversity is an essential value at all levels: every person brings something extra with their characteristics, enhancing dialogue and cohesion between colleagues. In fact, it is of huge importance for us, so much so that in the banking and financial services sector we are the 3rd Italian bank and the 23rd in Europe according to the list drawn up by the Financial Times.
INVOLVEMENT, COMPANY CULTURE AND WELL-BEING
We implement various initiatives to involve people, strengthen corporate culture, improve well-being and generate new ideas: Brand Ambassador, Teams with the CEO, recreational events, pathways to create a healthy workplace culture through the W@W – Wellbeing at Work – project and corporate volunteering.
For our employees and their families, we are constantly enhancing our welfare system in response to many needs in the healthcare, social security, insurance, recreational and financial areas, and we encourage a good work-life balance through tools like smart working.
