Representation of employees
One of our aims is to be a responsible and fair employer. Since 1999 an in-house employees’ association (ANV: Arbeitnehmervertretung) at our parent bank has actively fostered dialogue with female and male colleagues, on the one hand, and with corporate management, on the other. The employees’ association has a mediating function, which will become increasingly important in the future.
The association board mediates between the employees and the Group Executive Board as well as between staff and supervisors and promotes cooperation. The Group Executive Board informs the association of all matters that are relevant to employees. The association has a say, for example, in issues relating to staff pension plans, rationalization projects, matters involving reductions in staff and employee surveys. The association supported the social plan that became necessary as a result of Focus2015 and is involved in the employee surveys that are conducted every two years.
