BNP Paribas has organised a global response to the COVID-19 crisis. The direct support plan, activated in over 30 countries, provides local support for hospitals, vulnerable populations and young people. The additional commitment brings the Group's contribution to over €50m.
In business, communication is always key, but in these unprecedented times, it’s more important than ever for business leaders to unite their workforce by mastering this art. At BNP Paribas Personal Finance, protecting our colleagues has always been a priority, and as a result we’ve been able to transition our workforce to remote working, allowing us to continue serving our partners from the safety of our new ‘offices’.
What is your business doing to inspire the next generation? Here at BNP Paribas Personal Finance, we like to take a hands-on approach when giving back to our local community, and our partnership with Dallaglio RugbyWorks, which has enabled them to deliver their successful programme, including Career Taster Days, across the Midlands, is something we’re very proud of.
In times of great uncertainty, our mental health is often the first thing to suffer. Now, more than ever, it’s important that we learn to recognise the signs that might appear when our colleagues are struggling and take steps to prevent this where possible. We sat down with our Head of Talent, Careers and Development, Vicky Waters, to talk about looking after your mental health when you’re working from home.
Young people on the Dallaglio RugbyWorks programme in the West Midlands were given a unique opportunity to support Hogarths Hotel Group in Solihull, as part of a Career Taster Day held during National Careers Week, through a collaboration with BNP Paribas Personal Finance.
Last week saw the launch of Birmingham Young Professional of the Year (BYPY) 2020, the flagship awards ceremony which celebrates the achievements of inspiring young people working in the city’s professional services sector. We’re proud to be sponsoring the awards again for their landmark 20th year, as part of our commitment to supporting the progression and skills development of local young talent.
