Employer Branding

Our organization attaches great importance to the quality of recruitment. We look for and employ employees in accordance with applicable law and the best market practices.

We want to reach the widest possible group of talented candidates, which is why we are present where they are – at job fairs, universities and in social media. We offer apprenticeships and internships to people without work experience. Employees with extensive experience are offered participation in internal recruitment, which plays an important role in the process of filling managerial positions. It is important for employees who value professional development to be able to implement their plans in our organization.

Our goal is the high quality of recruitment processes. All persons involved in the employment processes are obliged to apply the principles of ethics resulting from the Labour Code and internal regulations, as well as the regulations regarding confidentiality and non-discrimination. In the recruitment process, we place particular emphasis on respecting diversity in terms of age, gender, sexual identity, nationality, skin colour, religion, health, marital status, political beliefs and other personal preferences and characteristics. Decisions in the recruitment process are made with professional objectivity and impartiality.

Internal initiatives

As a part of the promotion of the internal labour market, we have made it easier for employees to access vacancies in the Bank and in the Companies of the BNP Paribas Group. We have created a tab in Echonet – our internal intranet, where employees can find internal recruitment rules, and offers promoted in the Bank and its companies. We have started a series of monthly online meetings within the internal labour market. These events are aimed at presenting the internal labour market and showing opportunities for development within the Bank and in the Companies of the BNP Paribas Group. During meetings with recruiters, company representatives and managers, employees have the opportunity to talk about interesting offers, get acquainted with the rules of internal recruitment and recruitment conducted in areas of their interest.

We pay special attention to building the personal brand of our employees. Two basic tools serve this purpose. One more outward-oriented – LinkedIn. The second, About Me, is an inward-oriented tool. As part of the „Development Festival”, we promoted it and showed its value to the employees. It is used not only to set goals, but also to show each of us through the prism of our skills, competences, experiences, what we would like to do, how we would like to develop. We can also indicate our preferences for further professional career there. This tool allows us to present ourselves to the organization and build our personal brand.

BUW for Owls (Warsaw University Library for Night Owls)

In 2020, together with the Library of the University of Warsaw, we carried out the BUW for Owls campaign, as a part of which we prepared the Green Zone of BNP Paribas Bank Polska S.A. Visitors to our stand were able to learn about offers of internships and apprenticeships in the Bank. Green Zone of Bank BNP Paribas stand was created from ecological materials and filled with juicy greenery. It included an HR area and an ambassador duo, where students could learn about offers of internships and work at the Bank. In addition, in the cafe area, where there were eco-snacks and an energy-bike, you could squeeze out the vegetable and fruit juice which you have composed yourself.
