I am very pleased to announce that HSBC Italy has joined Parks.

HSBC is one of the world’s largest banking and financial services organizations and has operated in Italy since 1995. As one of the world’s leading international banks, HSBC supports large domestic firms, medium sized businesses with international operations, local branches of multinational companies, financial institutions and the public sector. As a global firm, HSBC believes diversity brings benefits to their customers, their business and their people. HSBC was named Company of the Year at the European Diversity Awards in 2017.

Being inclusive is an expression of HSBC’s values to be dependable, open and connected. HSBC Italy wants to be a place where people are valued, respected and supported to achieve their potential – and is striving to build an environment where people feel they can speak up to help the organization remove barriers to success, and collaborate to put the best ideas into practice. To promote diversity within the HSBC Group, its employees lead seven global networks focused on gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity, religion, working parents and disability.

As a global bank, we have diversity and inclusion in our roots; they are part of who we are. For more than 150 years, we have brought different people and cultures together around the world. By joining Parks in Italy, the Bank locally reinforces its commitment to diversity and inclusion“, says Claudia Schaefer, Head of Human Resources Italy. “At HSBC we are conscious about the importance of different networks working together to achieve common goals and make the Italian workplace more inclusive.

By joining Parks, HSBC Italy adds its name to the important group of Italian and global employers that promote the culture of diversity and inclusion in Italy. HSBC and all members of Parks work on the creation of inclusive workplaces for all their employees, also in relation to sexual orientation and gender identity and expression. They share the understanding that such approach is not only significant from the ethical standpoint, but that it also represents a strategic investment in order to build a more successful organization and business.

A warm welcome to HSBC Italy.

Un caloroso benvenuto a HSBC Italia.
