A PARI MERITO is our programme to enhance the uniqueness

We are committed to counteracting all forms of prejudice and creating the conditions for everyone to feel respected and comfortable in their working environment, regardless of gender, age, disability, ethnicity, sexual orientation and identity.
The simple definition of D&I (Diversity and Inclusion) policies, although an important starting point, cannot in itself influence the change.
It is only through a long and sustained journey, focused on individual and community responsibility, that we can make a real impact in the life of our company and society.

We intervene through specific information and awareness-raising programmes and initiatives for employees, starting with top management.  We develop targeted organisational processes, such as the definition of a corporate policy " BPER Banca Group Diversity Policy", which identifies the areas of intervention and the commitments made to promote inclusion and equal opportunities in every employee management process.

The path

Respect and recognition of others are values that have always guided us. Everything has begun from a listening and in-depth process that has seen us committed on multiple fronts. On the one hand, we conducted an in-depth socio-demographic analysis of the corporate population, which resulted in the creation of a dashboard to monitor the kpi related to inclusion and equal opportunities topics. At the same time, we listened to our people through surveys and focus groups, from which we recorded people's perceptions but also gathered advice, suggestions and ideas.
