The Bank for years now has been applying best practices that support diversity, promote equal treatment and prevent discrimination. A great number of elements of those practices have been reflected in various procedures or processes. In September 2016, the Bank Management Board approved the Diversity Policy defining the areas and ways of diversity management at ING Bank Śląski S.A. It is aimed at integrating all the actions, including processes, procedures and other documents that are associated with diversity management at ING Bank Śląski S.A. so that all employees and job candidates are treated equally and can work in a friendly environment. Diversity management is an element of delivering on the Bank’s strategy.
The policy is designed to build the awareness of the organisation in which the principles of equal treatment at work are applied, meaning no discrimination in any manner whatsoever, both directly and indirectly, because of: gender, age, disability, health condition, race, nationality, ethnic origin, religion, denomination, irreligion, political convictions, trade union memberships, sexual orientation, gender identity, family status, lifestyle, form, scope and basis of employment, other cooperation types as well as other triggers of discriminatory behaviours.
The Diversity Policy pertains to all employees, regardless of the position they hold, especially to the Bank authorities and key managers. Diversity management concerns all organisational levels and starts already during the recruitment process. The Bank in its strategy, processes and actions ensures equal treatment and those principles are reflected in detailed regulations and processes. Furthermore, the agreed ratios are monitored regularly every six months to show how the Bank delivers on the Diversity Policy.
