Diversity in the workplace

Diversity, equality and opportunity are the hallmarks of BNP Paribas Real Estate Culture. We have made it our mission to build a team that mirrors the diversity we see in the world, and we actively encourage this diversity among our partners. Serving clients in an interconnected, multicultural world demands that we are sensitive to the concerns of each individual, and our diverse work environment helps us meet that end.

Women in leadership at BNP Paribas Real Estate: advancing gender parity

At BNP Paribas Real Estate, we believe in ensuring every employee feels empowered and is provided with equal opportunities. To that end, we have made advancing gender parity a priority. The company commits to pushing back against gender stereotypes and promoting change through the following measures:

  • Compliance with the general principle of non-discrimination
  • Ensuring equal treatment for equal responsibility, training, experience and skills
  • Arranging a career interview one month after an employee returns from maternity leave
  • Maintaining salaries during paternity leave
  • Taking a positive approach to requests for part-time work, for both men and women
  • Enabling staff to achieve work-life balance by keeping meetings within working hours
  • Including at least one woman in the shortlist for all management positions

The "Women in Leadership" programme

In 2012, BNP Paribas Real Estate launched the international Women in Leadership (WIL) programme to encourage gender equality and equip women for leadership roles throughout the company.

Each year, around 40 high-achieving women attend a training course designed to provide the tools necessary for continued success. This course is followed by one year of personal and professional development through a mentoring programme offering additional support and career advice. Participants in WIL undertake one of three pathways to success according to their profiles: the Executive Pathway, the Advancing Pathway or the Inspiring Pathway.

Supporting staff with disabilities

BNP Paribas Real Estate believes in creating an inclusive and supportive workplace for all staff, including persons with disabilities. This involves discovering new ways to fully accommodate handicapped employees through specific assistance. For example, staff with hearing loss are given subsidised hearing aids to equalize their abilities.

Engaged in local communities

At BNP Paribas Real Estate, we believe in staying socially engaged and giving back to the local community. We also like to have fun!
