We embrace diversity

Four different generations, the same respect for the employee. People from different generations coexist within the work environment, with unique characteristics, needs, desires, and capabilities. Regardless of age and role, every person has value and is unique. We strive to continually improve and cultivate behaviors that create an inclusive work environment with respect and dignity for all. We believe that innovation, decision-making efficiency, leadership, and profitability are improved and enhanced over the long term by everyone's diversity. 

Respect for human dignity

We adopt and implement anti-harassment and anti-violence policies and corresponding complaint handling policies. The aim is to ensure the right of every person to work free of violence and/or harassment and to strengthen measures to prevent and report inappropriate behavior. We want to maintain high standards at all times, ensuring that our working environment is governed by respect, trust, fairness and inspires safety in our people. We uphold equality and meritocracy, without discrimination on the basis of personal or other characteristics, having zero tolerance for any incident that arises.

“I started out with the i-work @ NBG Internship Program and two years later I was given the opportunity to become Head of the User Experience team. For me, NBG is like a family, it supports innovation at work, and – equally importantly – has stood by me every step of the way, giving me the opportunity to develop, be creative, and learn through the state-of-the-art digital products that we develop.”
