We work for equality and diversity

Variation in gender, age, competence, cultural background, experience, functional ability, sexual orientation and religious beliefs give us multiple perspectives and make us better equipped to solve challenges, promote innovation and create the best customer experiences. The fact that people are different makes DNB a better bank. 

Here are our ambitions for equality and diversity:

  • Gender balance (40/60) in management positions at all levels, and diversity and inclusiveness in all teams. We achieve this by working with everything from goals, policies and regulations, to how we will recruit, develop and retain diversity in the organisation. An inclusive culture where people are valued for their differences, recognised for their talent and allowed to be themselves is a prerequisite for diversity providing value, and is therefore a high priority.
  • DNB will help promote equality among our customers through products, services and dialogue. No personal customers in DNB shall experience conscious or unconscious discrimination. All customers are to be treated with respect, and we will help reduce inequalities through good advisory services and good products. For DNB, it is especially important to help level out differences related to savings, investments and financial rights.   
  • DNB’s largest suppliers within IT, consulting activities and legal services are required to work systematically with equality and diversity in their own organisations. By promoting diversity and equality in collaborations with partners and suppliers, we can contribute to a positive development.

DNB is an organized enterprise and employees are represented by two recognized local unions, based on local and central collective bargaining agreements. DNB is emphasizing to have a good and continuous dialogue with the employee representatives in cases affecting employees interest. The rights according to the collective agreements are applied to all employees in DNB group entities in Norway (excluding management level 1-4).
