Encouraging Diversity and Continually Developing
At Santander, diversity is a strategic driver of transformation. To innovate solutions to new challenges, we need the various points of view and experiences. The more different we are, the more diverse our answers to society’s challenges can be. Therefore, we celebrate what makes each of us unique.
Santander CIB is supporting various initiatives to lift equality between men and women, developing specific programs to boost diversity at a local level, aligned with Santander’s corporate culture: Simple, Personal and Fair.
We provide a range of family friendly policies which include increased paternity leave, flexible working options including compressed hours, days, annualized hours and working from home or job sharing. An established global mentoring and reverse mentoring scheme supports employees to develop and share knowledge. Regular diversity focus groups, panel discussions and workshops provide open forums to spark debate, discussion and help identify and implement cultural improvements in the business.
“Diversity is not just good for women. It is good for men. It is good for society, and it is good for Santander and for the world.”
What Our People Say
“Diversity unlocks creativity and innovation."
Diversity unlocks creativity and innovation. As a leader I am responsible and passionate for embracing a diverse environment where different skills, ideas and opinions, driven by a mix of cultures, experiences and backgrounds, work together.
"Flexibility is key for me."
At Santander Corporate & Investment Bank and being Head of Internal Audit, I have the flexibility to balance my professional responsibilities with my personal life as a wife, mother of two children and carer of my daughter with special needs. For me, this flexibility is key to maintain a healthy work-life balance without giving up my professional growth within the company.
"All success starts with courage."
All success starts with courage. The courage of an individual to take a risk, to fully be themselves and the courage of an organisation to take people with different voices, experiences and viewpoints. Be braver today than you were yesterday and braver tomorrow than you are today and great things will happen.
A strong and sustainable global offering is essential to partner with our clients to help them in their transition towards a more responsible, social and environmentally sustainable (ESG) model. Moreover, SCIB’s contribution is key to accomplish Santander’s commitments on green finance announced at the launch of the Principles for Responsible Banking.
Our business is a business of people and our team is the most valuable asset we have. That is why, in Santander CIB we put the people at the centre and help them prosper.
