Our people

We value people, we promote diversity and we invest to promote lifelong learning and professional growth by creating a transparent, collaborative and accessible working environment.

Our People

People are one of the five pillars of the 2019-2021 Strategic Plan launched by Banca Generali and one of the key elements on which the Banking Group bases its pursuit of its strategic objectives.

Accordingly, in 2019 close attention continued to be devoted to investments in the development, growth and management of individuals, by spreading a company culture founded on shared values, leveraging diversity and inclusion.

In order achieve these goals, in coordination with the Generali Group, in February 2019 a new People Strategy was launched that takes account of the Bank’s mission and values, the new strategic plan designed for growth and sustainable development, and the Bank’s organisation, while also continuing to pursue the ultimate goal of creating value over time for all of our various stakeholders and developing the Human Capital.

The four pillars of the People Strategy (Culture, New Skill Development, Leadership and Talent and Organisation) are also challenges that Banca Generali has set for itself and will undertake in the coming years for sustainable growth.

At the end of 2019, Banca Generali’s workforce amounted to 950 staff, of which 49% are women. 97% of the Banking Group’s employees worked within the Italian territory. The remaining 3% was based in Luxembourg.

Financial advisory training

The end of 2018 saw the launch of BG Lab, the consolidated digital training channel where Financial Advisors can find all of the new developments and content relating to their training. BG Lab is a way of ensuring optimal adoption of the ongoing training approach, based on physical/digital integration that takes full advantage of all training opportunities, through engagement focused on learning and self-study.

Equal opportunity

We base our success on the enhancement of human resources, attention and commitment towards collaborators, respect for human dignity, freedom and equality, and equal opportunity in the workplace and on career paths, without any kind of discrimination.

In the light of these key principles, the guarantee of equal treatment between men and women and the protection of differently abled and foreign-national employees in the selection process, training, career advancement and remuneration are accompanied by the ambition to build a culture that values diversity of thought, considered to be an essential resource for company development and growth.

To ensure equal opportunities for the differently able, national legislation protecting this group is observed and implemented, including from a logistical standpoint: the buildings that host the Group’s offices are constantly monitored to ensure that they maintain thorough code compliance with regard to architectural requirements and workstations, and parking areas reserved for the disabled are available in the immediate vicinity.
