In 2018 we launched the Differently Abled project the goal of which is to build an inclusive and diverse work environment by preparing the organisation to employ people with disabilities. Measures are taken to raise the awareness of the needs and rights of the disabled, overcome any potential barriers to employment.
The project also encompassed a pilot recruitment program. On the turn of 2017 and 2018, Santander Bank Polska carried out a pilot recruitment process hiring employees with hearing impairment to work in the bank’s archives in connection with the implementation of the new personal data protection regulations. The pilot program was accompanied by a widescale internal training and communication campaign devoted to the subject of development of accessible work environment.
