that build team loyalty

Training programmes offer BNP Paribas a

means of attracting new talent and building

loyalty among its teams. The training policy and

offering seek to bring benefits at both collective

and individual levels, by building the skill-sets the

are encouraged to pursue training that is

relevant both to their current position and to their

distinguished performance in their current position.

The two-week seminar takes place at the Louveciennes Training Centre. More than twenty nationalities

were represented at each of the 2006 WIN sessions, which had a total of 102 attendees, most of them
