BNP Paribas inaugurated the BNP Paribas Asia-Pacific Campus in Singapore, its first training and talent development facility in the region. Enhanced employee and talent management practices through the delivery of some of the world’s leading training and development products is a cornerstone of the group’s regional strategy, the company said.

 

“BNP Paribas is one of the best positioned international banks in Asia-Pacific. The region plays a key role in the group’s 2014-2016 global business development plan. We are committed to investing more in talent both here in Singapore and in Asia-Pacific. Having been present in the region for over 150 years, we employ over 8,000 people in a wide range of businesses spanning 14 markets; people development is one of our core values and is key to continued success. In partnership with the Singapore Government, we have built this world class facility which underlines our ambitions for both Singapore and the wider Asia- Pacific region,” said Eric Raynaud, chief executive officer of BNP Paribas Asia-

Pacific.

 

BNP Paribas will train 3,200 employees per annum from Singapore, Asia-Pacific and some of its 75 countries worldwide, with a range of programmes specifically designed to cover eight key paths: talent development; leadership and management; individual skills; risk and credit; compliance and regulatory; product and technical proficiencies; diversity and inclusion and corporate culture and citizenship.

 

Supported by the government of Singapore, BNP Paribas has invested S$24 million to restore two conservation buildings which house the BNP Paribas Asia Pacific Campus. The restoration work started in 2012 and was completed within 15 months. The campus covers a total surface area of 14,120 square metres and is strategically located close to Singapore’s Changi International Airport.
