• human resources development / clearly identified operational challenges

A new Employment Adaptation Plan was also

launched by BNP Paribas SA in France, also for

the 2006-2008 period. It includes several types

of measures:

• mobility and internal redeployment: the Bank

systematically favours the internal redeployment

of employees whose positions have been

eliminated. Employees involved in redeployment

programmes are provided with specific

assistance in terms of mobility and retraining.

The Group offers help in drawing up a personal

development profile, provides information on

available posts, and gives financial assistance

in the case of relocations;

• Support for voluntary departures: measures

aimed at encouraging voluntary departures

may be applied to eligible employees, subject

to approval by the relevant human resources

managers. Voluntary departures can be

authorised for professional projects or business

creation schemes. There were 136 such

voluntary departures in 2006.

• Very attractive conditions for shifting to parttime

work offered to back-office staff, with a

guarantee that new employees will be hired to

cover the outstanding workload.

By keeping recruitment at a high level and

ensuring efficient long-term succession management,

BNP Paribas should be able to forestall

the effects of the demographic changes

expected in the future.

At the same time, the growth in the Group’s

other business lines enabled BNP Paribas

to create over 1,000 net new jobs in France in

2006.

Intensive and varied recruitment processes

Since 2004, the Group’s recruitment activity in

France and abroad has remained consistently

high, in line with the expansion of its business

lines. The number of new hires worldwide (1)

totalled 14,000 in 2006, reflecting a substantial

increase on 2005, attributable to outstanding

growth in all Group business lines.
