Innovation

at the heart of our company culture

Innovation, part of our DNA

To be the bank for a changing world, also means innovating on a daily basis to find the most suitable solutions for our customers and our employees.
As such, it’s important to us to promote working methods that are increasingly collaborative and agile.

Customer experience and co-creation

Our existing and future customers are the focal point of our concerns. Our employees are implementing new working methods in co-creation with customers.

For example, the Design Factory from Wealth Management is devoted to identifying and implementing innovative and digital solutions for our private customers.

BNP Paribas in support of innovation

Since 2019, the bank in Switzerland has been committed to major players in research and innovation such as Cybathlon and Realise.
Cybathlon supports the research and development of assistive technology for people with reduced mobility, thus encouraging their social inclusion and providing them with greater autonomy.
Realise supports people in social reintegration and offers training in IT, offering innovation that is socially driven while also remaining at the forefront of the latest technological trends.
Being the bank for a changing world requires us to constantly innovate, to have an ever-more positive impact and to support our partners in creating the world of tomorrow.

Promoting open innovation

Innovative research is not limited to just listening to our customers’ needs. It’s important to be able to propose innovative solutions to our employees.

Open innovation is a method of innovation based on collaboration, sharing and agile software development. Colibri, our in-house incubator, offers a frame for open innovation for our employees that wish to develop solutions that meet with the bank’s in-house needs.

Supporting employees in their new working environment

In order to best meet our customers’ needs and to stimulate the agility and innovation of our employees, we have provided them with a new, more flexible environment that is better suited to our working methods.

Through the Home & Flex Office programme, our employees can adopt collaborative or individual working methods depending on their needs and their tasks.
