At the beginning of 2021, we established cooperation with external entities that support us in better adapting the organization and in increasing employment of people with disabilities. In cooperation with these entities, we conducted training and planned internal communication so as to promote open, inclusive behaviours.
We initiated a series of webinars on how to increase awareness of our managers regarding employment of people with disabilities. The webinars were conducted by a coach responsible for training managers solely in this area.
Another series of webinars, Different Abilities, Common Goal, was created for all employees, as well as a series of testimonials People with Experience. We also organised a webinar for all employees led by a motivational speaker, Tomasz Manikowski, who is a person with disability active in business. Privately, we work towards overcoming obstacles that limit people with disabilities.
An expert on employment of people with disabilities joined the Recruitment Team. Whereas the Communication and Marketing Department welcomed another expert on breaking stereotypes and disability inclusion in the Bank and public space.
The Disabled Community has been included in the Ten Commandments of Equal Treatment. The Diversity Week devoted one full day to the area of disability. We created a web page in Echonet which contains educational materials addressed at all employees. The symbol of people with disabilities was placed on a mural at the Kasprzaka Head Office in Warsaw, which represents our values.
We word our recruitment listings so it is clear for all candidates how important it is for the Bank to actively include people with disabilities. New-hires can now enjoy a newly created handbook Nice to see you.
We promote inclusivity outside the organisation, too. To this end, the campaign The World Needs You was launched. Our social media also openly inform about our attitude towards people with disabilities.
