At Danske Bank, we see diversity as a strength and prerequisite for delivering on our ambition to offer the best customer experiences and to become a Better Bank For that reason, diversity and inclusion is something we work purposefully with.
“We have a shared responsibility to make EVERYONE feel welcome and respected as the person they are. That is why it is important that we, like other workplaces, take a critical look at ourselves and consider whether there is anything we can do better for each other," Karsten Breum says.
Sexism at workplaces has become a subject of intense debate recently, prompted by a number of people speaking up about their experiences. At Danske Bank, we emphasise an open culture in which everyone can share concerns or experiences with inappropriate behaviour. “No employees should feel offended or inappropriately treated at Danske Bank, and we have zero tolerance for sexual harassment. We also do not tolerate other abusive or inappropriate behaviour of any kind," emphasises Karsten Breum.
Zero tolerance and training should still foster an inclusive and safe workplace
All employees in Danske Bank should feel comfortable and met with respect, and that is a shared responsibility, says Karsten Breum, Head of HR at Danske Bank.
