151 projects and 43,363 beneficiaries

Bankia considers employment a priority line within its social action and a way of contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Employment is considered as a priority line of action in Bankia’s social investment. The entity is promoting different employability projects and is working on the creation of alliances as a way to achieve the goals established in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 17 (Alliances to achieve the objectives) and 8 (Decent work and economic growth).

The projects that Bankia supports in this area focus on promoting employment among people belonging to vulnerable groups, in line with SDG 5, Gender equality.

During 2019, the bank carried out 151 projects related to employment and job placement that directly benefited 43,363 people.

Among many other initiatives, the following stand out:

  • Collaboration with entities such as the Cruz Roja (Red Cross), with which Bankia carries out various social programmes aimed at facilitating access to the labour market, both for young people and people over 45 years of age; as well as for women victims of gender-based violence.
  • Development of employment programmes with the Integra Foundation and the Konecta Foundation, in support of women in vulnerable situations, whether they have been victims of gender-based violence or are at risk of exclusion.
  • Together with the SECOT Association and Cáritas Española, various job guidance programmes have been carried out in the field of job placement and business creation.
  • Seventh edition of 'Online Employment', in collaboration with the Randstad Foundation, focused on training, guidance and advice on employment. Through this cross-cutting initiative, Bankia is developing this programme to serve unemployed customers and their families.
