IMPORTANT! Banesco Banco Universal is Concerned About its Workers
Education, health, and financial inclusion were the main pillars of Banesco Banco Universal’s social investment throughout 2017. At the end of 2017, the financial entity directed 11,75 billion of Bolívares to projects and social impact activities both internally for the benefit of Banesco workers and externally along its associates and social allies.
Oscar Doval, executive president of Banesco, informed that this quantity represents 92% of the investment in the period:
“During 2017, we directed 10 billion bolívares to programs that contribute to a better life quality for Banesco citizens and its families. The quantity represents 92% of our social investment in the period. In other words: for each 100 bolívares that we assign to social investment, 92 bolívares will be dedicated to our human capital.”
Regarding the external investment, Doval explained that the financial entity strengthened its binds with institutions that provide education and health to the population, particularly, to the most vulnerable families. Following that line of thought, 8% of its budget of Enterprise Social Responsibility was invested in projects of its social associates.
Within the activities made during 2017’s second semester we can find: The little entrepreneur course in which at the end of 2017 had 5.658 new entrepreneurs. Until now, this program has prepared around 52.518 new entrepreneurs.
Participative budgets for communities: during 2017 this activity was made in 9 communities. The first call was made in Mérida state and then it was extended to Distrito Capital, Miranda, Carabobo, Zulia, Táchira, Nueva Esparta, Lara, and Anzoátegui states.
Banesco editorial fund: in 2017’s last semester, the financial institution presented new titles to the Banesco editorial fund, all of them digitally. In December 2017, “Nuevo País de las Artes” was launched in a digital format. Also, the digital book “Magallanes: Contra viento y marea. 100 años de historia, 1917-2017” was presented. Furthermore, the digital book “Caracas en 450. Un homenaje a Caracas en su aniversario”, as well as “70 años de conversaciones con escritores de paso” were presented.
