This allows for improved positioning of the participating banks of the UniCredit Group amongst applicants as well as strengthening the employer brand.

The system uses the latest technologies and developments in the employee and candidate journey. Physical forms, for example, will be processed digitally in future and handled entirely sustainably (e.g., in a “paperless” way). In addition, we’ve been able to reduce media disruptions for all parties involved by simplifying and automating a large number of process steps. In line with the Group’s policy, the career portal as well as the administration of applications by line managers is completely barrier-free according to WCAG2 guidelines.

Together with the cooperation partner Pfennigparade, the tool was tested for its user-friendliness for people with physical and mental disabilities. For example, the colour scheme has high-contrast, and all buttons and dropdown menus have clear labels that can also be read by screen readers. This makes it possible to promote inclusion during the recruiting process. In 2022, additional modules have been introduced that facilitate, for example, the onboarding of new employees and the finding and promotion of internal talent.
