  • More than 1,400 people have received advice through this program and the employment ratio has been around 50%
  • The program, launched in 2013, targets Bankia customers, close relatives and spouses of clients who are unemployed or at risk of social exclusion

Bankia and Randstad have renewed their collaboration agreement to continue developing the 'Empleo en Red’ program, through which they have advised 1,408 Bankia customers, of whom 646 have obtained a job, which amounts to a success rate of almost 50%.

'Empleo en Red', a program launched by both entities in 2013, targets Bankia customers, close relatives and spouses of clients who are unemployed and/or at risk of social exclusion.

Its aim is to contribute to social responsibility by helping unemployed or disadvantaged customers, such as professionals over the age of 45 who have been unemployed for over a year, newly arrived immigrants, victims of gender-based violence and people with disabilities. or single-parent families, to find a job to help them return to the job market.

The director of the Randstad Foundation, María Viver Gómez; the director of Randstad Outplacement, Helia Téllez de Meneses; and the director of Corporate Social Responsibility at Bankia, David Menéndez, took part in the signing ceremony, which took place at Bankia's headquarters.

"At Bankia we believe that employment, one of our main lines of social action, is a fundamental drive for change that allows the social integration of people in vulnerable situations," said Menéndez.

For her part, Viver highlighted that "the 'Empleo en Red’ program is one of the best results in terms of advice and inclusion. Bankia is an indispensable ally in this project, and we are proud to continue this collaboration."

Téllez de Meneses pointed out that "we have worked together to ensure that hundreds of Bankia customers are employed. It is a pleasure to collaborate with an entity that has employment as a focus of its social action".

Guidance, skills and monitoring

The 'Empleo en Red' program consists of three parts carried out by the Randstad Foundation and Randstad Outplacement. The first one, focused on career guidance; the second, on acquiring the social skills, abilities and competencies needed to search for a job; and, finally, a third stage of follow-up and supervision in the job market by actively seeking employment.

Developed nationwide, it provides new skills needed required to get a job and is part of Bankia’s social action, whose activity focuses on supporting projects related to employment and the needs of the most vulnerable and discriminated groups.

After signing the agreement, with the support of Bankia, Randstad will continue to increase the employability of professionals who, in the event of being at risk of exclusion, will be supported by the Randstad Foundation. To do this, the initiative will continue to foster the search for new job opportunities for these groups of people.


Bankia consolidates and reinforces its commitment to society through five priority lines of social action: employment and training, housing, local and rural development, disability and the environment. The financial institution focuses its social investment on these areas and maintains its commitment to society through the involvement of its entire structure and professionals. The Corporate Social Responsibility policy is all-encompassing and approachable, as it links the social actions of the bank with its business in the areas in which the professionals themselves find socio-economic problems and vulnerable groups.


Randstad is the leading company in Spain in human resources solutions and provides a job to 43,000 people in Spain every day. It offers one million hours of training per year and a global service of human resources consultancy: recruitment of professionals, task outsourcing, development of plans and ad hoc training implementation, temporary hiring and repositioning processes.
