Diversity and equal chances
“At ING we promote diversity – not only because it is proper to do so. We promote diversity because we cannot deliver on our strategy without it.” – so starts the ING Diversity Manifesto which we adopted in 2016. We believe that taking various perspectives drives innovativeness, boosts growth and helps one in taking proper decisions and achieving better results.
With this Manifesto, we want to show that we are open and responsible and that our intention is to stimulate creation of culture that is based on mutual respect. We want to be a workplace where all can feel themselves. The experiences stemming from, inter alia, the gender, age, origin or religion differences enable us to face up to challenges.
ING is consistently implementing the adopted Diversity Strategy. The confirmation of good practices in this respect is the fact that ING Bank Śląski joined the group of signatories of the Diversity Charter. The Diversity Charter is a written declaration signed by employers undertaking to implement equal treatment policies and diversity management at work.
