At the same time, the Responsible Business Plan has continued to receive support as a key element in the development of our professionals. Its goal is to make all of them aware of environmental and social governance and transmit the Group’s community involvement through responsible banking. In 2014, it was launched the Responsible Business e-learning program and the “Becarios 3.000” program. In the first year of this program, 1,423 young people benefited from the project and 916 scholarships were completed out of the 1,644 launched.
BBVA is committed to transparency, objectivity and equal opportunities in professional development. To this end, the Group has a mobility policy which, among other initiatives, gives priority to internal rather than external recruitment. Over the year, 4,569 vacancies have been published in apúntate+, the Group’s job-posting platform, and over 11,895 professionals have participated in the various processes.
The “Becarios 3.000” (Interns 3,000) program has been launched under the umbrella of the Responsible Business Plan, with the aim of making it easier for young people to enter the labor market
