For the second year running, BNP Paribas is running a series of ‘Job Mobility Days’ from 13 to 30 April. This year, events designed to encourage internal career mobility will be taking place in 30 countries where the Group does business, up from 13 countries in 2014.
During a period of three weeks, over 100 in-house events will be held across the BNP Paribas Group, including a Jobs Forum in France, Germany, Portugal, Turkey and the New York, USA offices; CV-writing workshops in Belgium, Burkina Faso, Hungary and elsewhere; interview technique workshops in Côte d’Ivoire, Morocco et al; career-theme conferences such as ‘Journey to the Centre of Your Skills’ in Belgium, ‘Mobility Days Corner’ in Spain, ‘Get to Know the Group’ in Italy, ‘Creating Your Network’ in the UK, ‘Steering Your Career Path’ in the Middle East; and a ‘Job Mobility Village’ in Senegal. BNP Paribas staff are encouraged to share their experiences of these events on Twitter, using the hashtag #MobDays15.
Internal career mobility central to the BNP Paribas ‘employer promise’
Employees at any company are keen to grow their skills and progress, and this is one of the eight basic promises which the BNP Paribas Group makes to its staff. In 2014, half of our staff had been in their current position for less than three years, which gives an indication of the range and variety of career opportunities across the Group. BNP Paribas is determined to offer every employee the chance to grow and diversify his/her work experience by making job moves across the Bank’s various geographies and/or businesses.
Explains Yves Martrenchar, BNP Paribas Group Head of Human Resources: “As ‘the bank for a changing world’, we are committed to being more agile and proactive, which makes it absolutely essential to recruit the most talented people and enable them to grow with us. Our staff are looking for stimulating careers with the prospect of progress. And they have every right to expect this from a Group with an integrated, diversified business model that has permanent establishments in 75 countries.”
In February this year, BNP Paribas was awarded, for the second time, certification as one of the ‘Top Employers Europe’, in recognition of the Group’s high quality HR policies.
