Expanding specialist knowledge
Our company's success is based to a large extent on committed, well-qualified and experienced employees. This is why NORD/LB provides a comprehensive range of educational offers and a strong knowledge network.
Our range of seminars supports our employees in their technical, social and personal development.
We use the experience and knowledge of our employees who have been in the business for many years. As our long-term knowledge carriers they are indispensable to us - both as bearers of potential in their areas of responsibility and in the context of inter-generational transfer of expertise.
Mentoring & coaching
Changes, desired further development or better collaboration - NORD/LB's coaching supports both individuals and teams.
Our mentoring programme also provides individual support - for example in the development of your career.
Career prospects at NORD/LB
We want to attract effective employees for the long term and give them opportunities. For this reason we offer different programmes to promote your personal development in our company.
Becoming a manager, our employees are accompanied by us and are given individual qualification both beforehand and in their new role.
Women in management
NORD/LB has made its task to significantly increase the number of women in top management. A successful company requires male and female management styles.
To promote a more favourable career climate for women, we provide amongst other things:
- career advice for women
- a structured mentoring programme for women
- networking meetings for female managers
Our "expert development" offers additional career prospects to men and women without management responsibility.
We ascribe particular importance to the targeted promotion of our high-potential employees, whom we select in the scope of a structured procedure.
The selected high-performers are prepared by individual mentoring - including by members of the bank's managing board - and are given the opportunity to build up knowledge and behavioural competence and to cope properly with the management task and management role.
Alongside specialist qualification we place special focus on social competence.
The idea of performance forms the core of our behaviour. It creates the basis for the success of each individual and thus for the whole bank.
Each employee is given feedback on their individual work performance in an annual review. The feedback is based on a performance assessment and a view of the objectives achieved. The outcome of the review is an overview of strengths and areas for development.
The insights of the discussion are fed into individual measures for further personal development of the employees.
Assessment of performance and achievement of targets are linked to the performance bonus within an integrated system. With a success- and performance-orientated pay component, NORD/LB offers a key prerequisite for market-standard remuneration of employees that is proportionate to the success of the bank and the individual employee.
Feedback for managers
Managers are given regular feedback about their management performance. All managers, including the Managing Board, are assessed by their own employees using 360° feedback. They are given a skills assessment and constructive ideas to expand their potential and develop themselves further.
Fit and healthy all round
Active, preventative healthcare is a fixed component of our active corporate responsibility. The maintenance and improvement of our employees' health has a long tradition.
Healthy working environment
- NORD/LB ensures a healthy working environment and provides health-and-safety-compliant materials at the workplaces.
- Our company doctors advise our employees individually on the ergonomic design of workplaces and measures to prevent issues with posture and eyesight.
- NORD/LB offers its employees and managers seminars on handling stress, health-conscious management and other health-related topics.
- Our qualified social counsellors support our employees in difficult professional and/or private life situations.
- There are 42 company sport groups at the various locations. Everything is catered for - from badminton via bowling, football, golf and tennis through to sailing.
- Employees at NORD/LB can take part in business yoga courses for relaxation in their lunch break.
- Each autumn employees can choose to be vaccinated against seasonal 'flu by the company doctors.
- Our company restaurants offer varied food, favour regional seasonal offerings when compiling menus and regularly have promotional weeks in which our employees are given ideas for healthy forms of nutrition.
Family-conscious Corporate Culture
We help our employees to harmonise their family needs and professional requirements and challenges.
Our working conditions and our corporate culture are therefore consciously devised to be family-friendly. The idea is to give the individual more scope for decision-making and initiative in order to react to the needs of the family.
Depending on location and individual situation of the employee, NORD/LB offers child-care facilities on site, contributions towards child-care costs or support via an external service-provider in the search for child-care places.
If the usual carer or child-care facility is unavailable, or if an employee is required to travel on business or for training, our employees have the option to have their child cared for by qualified staff in an emergency facility.
During school holidays we support the participation of children in holiday camps and have entered into cooperation agreements with multiple providers to facilitate this.
Family members requiring care
In collaboration with an external service provider we offer support across Germany in the search for suitable care for any family members who need it.
If an employee needs to look after children or family members needing care, there is the opportunity to work from home.
