In today’s ever-changing world, Natixis supports the transformation of its business lines and ensures sustainable and respectful performance across the board. In practical terms, this goal translates into action via the promotion of diversity and work-life quality for our teams.
DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
We are committed to building a respectful and inclusive working environment built on our staff’s diversity and where all our employees are empowered to be themselves and make an impact.
Gender equality in the workplace
Our equality in the workplace policy is based on three main priorities: female representation in business lines that are traditionally more male-dominated, their representation in top roles, and wage equality.
Since 2019, we have stepped up our commitment and featured for the first time in the Bloomberg gender-equality index, signed the United Nations Women’s Empowerment Principles and supported the development of an investment fund promoting gender equality by our subsidiary Mirova.
We also rank as the leading bank for gender balance in management bodies for companies listed on the SBF 120.

TECH FOR ALL

Supporting younger employees
Natixis is a responsible employer and as such has committed to concretely promoting employment, with the aim of under 30s making up 50% of recruitments out to 2020.
More than 500 students on work-study placements, 400 interns and 80 international volunteer program participants joined the company this year.
Inclusion for staff with disabilities
Natixis signed its fourth Disability agreement at the start of 2020. This agreement includes pledges on recruitment, purchases in the adapted and protected work sector and awareness initiatives for Natixis employees. The employment rate staff with disabilities has more than tripled at Natixis since 2010 to 4.83% at end-2019.
Created on the initiative of a group of colleagues at Natixis, the All Equals association aims for LGBT+ inclusivity and equal rights within Natixis. Already with hundreds of members in Paris, Porto, New York, Boston, Bordeaux and Caen, All Equals also strives to contribute to Natixis' appeal among LGBT+ individuals, by running a friendly network open to all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
Here at Natixis, we are convinced that sustainable performance goes hand-in-hand with a focus on our staff, and we have rolled out an ambitious policy over recent years to support employees’ health, wellbeing and work-life quality more broadly speaking.
