Diversity Policy in Bank Millennium Group was implemented in 2017. According to this Policy Group operates with respect for human dignity and observes right to equal treatment regardless of age, sex, ethnic and national origin, religion, denomination, family status, sexual orientation, health status, convictions, trade union affiliation and other characteristics exposing to discriminatory behaviour.
Bank Millennium Group has incorporated the principle of respect for diversity in its Labour Regulations, Code of Ethics and other material regulations in the area of HR management, and executes this principle in the following areas: recruitment and employment, access to payroll and positions, support to employees’ parents, equal access to benefits, support to persons facing difficulties in their lives, development of value based leadership and freedom of speech and open communication.
In the Bank Millennium Group the knowledge is being developed and employees’ awareness is being built as regards ethics and issues of respect for diversity. All employees go through mandatory training in ethical issues. Additionally, all the managerial staff is subject to mandatory training in counteracting mobbing and discrimination at workplace. Bank Millennium Group implemented an anti-mobbing and anti-discriminatory procedure. There is an abuse reporting system in place which is irrespective of the chain of command.
Women at Bank Millennium make up the majority of employees – almost 70% of them. Considering their share in the total, women are underrepresented in the Bank’s senior management, – they constitute about 28 % of the group. However this share has grown in the last 5 years by 5 percentage points. In 2018 the share of women in broadly understood Bank management, starting from the position of branch manager, was around 61%.
The Bank’s strategy, including e.g. building customer service units for foreigners working in Poland, also helps increase employee diversity in terms of nationality: in 2018 40 foreigners were employed.
The age structure of employees is fairly balanced, both labour market entrants and people at the end of their careers are hired. The biggest group of employees are persons between 30 and 40 years of age – 37% and persons between 40 and 50 years of age – 33%.
In connection with its long-term development strategy the Bank in its HR management policy will seek, as up now, to embrace diversity in terms of skills and professional experience of employees. An increased recruitment of employees having diverse professional experience is envisaged in the area of new technologies, communication and new marketing strategies.
