Financial Times rewards Crédit Agricole for diversity

 

On the 20th of November, Crédit Agricole was recognised by the Financial Times, in the context of its “Diversity Leaders” ranking, as the leading French financial services company in terms of diversity. 

At the European level, the group is positioned in the top 25th percentile (133rd) of a panel of 700 companies from 11 countries (Germany, England, Austria, Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg, Norway, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Sweden).

This ranking confirms our ambition, manifested by our Human Project, become the preferred employer in France and among the top 5 in Europe. It recognises our pro-active policy (particularly in terms of diversity and disability), initiated via a concrete action plan launched in 2016. It also strengthens our Employer Brand and provides evidence making us more attractive to our various targets.

Meeting the challenges of the changing world and the expectations of our customers, our employees, and Civil society in general, and achieving our Strategic Ambition for 2022 give diversity and our ability to experience it in an inclusive manner major importance, for the Group and for each and every one of us, as an accelerator of our managerial transformation.

 

The “Diversity Leaders 2020” ranking is based on a survey of 80,000 people (open online survey) and a panel of experts in Human Resources and Recruitment (direct mailing of 14,000 invitations) in 11 European countries. The survey targeted companies with over 250 employees and focused on how the participants perceived the promotion of diversity within their companies and the following aspects: gender, ethnic origin, LGBTQ, age, and disability.
