of disabled employees

The number of BNP Paribas employees in mainland France enrolled in

training for a professional qualification were as follows: 469 for the Brevet

Professionnel banking diploma, 527 for the BTS banking qualification

and 271 for the Institut Technique de Banque.

The Right to Individual Training (DIF) was further enhanced in 2006,

with the launch of a new online training catalogue. By the end of November

2006, approximately 160,000 hours of training had been provided as a result

of 10,000 applications under the DIF programme.

An “Accessibility” working group, bringing together staff from the Group

Information Systems, Group HR, Property and Group Operational

Effectiveness functions as well as from the French Retail Banking Division,

continued with the task of ensuring that disabled employees and clients enjoy

better access to information on banking websites. As a result, the recruitment

website has been redesigned to be usable by sight-impaired persons with

appropriate equipment. The font on the intranet portal can now be resized

to allow sight-impaired employees equal access to information. BNP Paribas

also continued to roll out ATMs with special sound capabilities, which will be

fitted with special access software and should account for over half

the ATM network by the end of 2008. Specific training was given to software

project managers to ensure that they build in accessibility features in any new

software they develop.

To support the charitable endeavours of staff members, the BNP Paribas

Foundation maintained its Coup de pouce programme of grants. In 2006,

as in other years, fighting the consequences of disabilities was at the forefront

of employees’ concerns and charitable commitments.
