UniCredit is proud to announce that it has been officially certified by the Top Employers Institute for the second year running for its exceptional employee offering, reaffirming the Group’s status as a great place to work.
The annual, international research undertaken by the Top Employers Institute recognises the leading employers around the world: those that provide excellent employee conditions, nurture and develop talent throughout all levels of the organisation and strive to continuously optimise employment practices.
The European level Top Employers Certification was awarded thanks to the local Certifications achieved by UniCredit in Italy, Germany, Russia, Croatia and Bulgaria as in 2018.
The Top Employers Certification is based on a thorough research process and a set of required standards. All the data was independently audited, verifying UniCredit's outstanding employee conditions and earning the Bank its spot among the select group of certified Top Employers.
The Top Employers Institute assessed UniCredit's employee offering based on the following criteria:
- Talent Strategy
- Workforce Planning
- Talent Acquisition
- Learning & Development
- Performance Management
- Leadership Development
- Career & Succession Management
- Compensation & Benefits
„Receiving the Top Employer award in Bulgaria for the third consecutive year is a honor and a proof that we worked and we are working in the right direction for creating a positive, transparent, cooperative working environment. The respect for our people, for their work and aspirations in the Bank, for their time, for what matters for them are our must; we leverage on best practices in our Group and we share with the Group our best practices, in order to position ourselves among the best places to work. Following the UniCredit employer brand promise #dowhatmatters, we have successfully developed local HR projects, Work Life Balance initiatives and our benefits system. Just as example, in the last 12 months, we launched an initiative to support mothers in returning to work and we introduced new benefits to enable a better work-life balance; under the umbrella of the local initiative ForThe1YouLove we have given to our colleagues an additional day off for celebrating the birthday of the beloved person and we have given, on top to the Christmas salary, a special Christmas voucher aimed to buy a gift for the beloved one. Because what and who matters for our colleagues, matters for us", commented Bedini Federico, Head of Human resources in UniCredit Bulbnank.
"Receiving the European Top Employers Certification for the second year running shows that UniCredit continues to invest in its people, supporting their development and creating a positive working environment where all employees feel engaged and can actively add value to the Group. Our ambition is to be one of the best employers in the European financial sector and we are taking concrete actions with a focus on diversity, inclusion, respect and ethics to progress towards this goal," commented Paolo Cornetta, Head of Group Human Capital.
