The working environment that promotes success

Our employees are highly motivated and extremely loyal

HSBC's success is not based on the long-term and consistent strategy implemented by the Bank alone, but is also made possible at the same time by the willingness to perform, motivation and major loyalty of our employees.

Our recipe for success for a good working environment: chances and challenges

More than a third of our employees have already been working at HSBC for longer than ten years. Despite the enormous growth in the Bank's workforce, the length of service remains high - a distinctive sign that our employees identify with our special corporate culture. Our recipe for success for a good working environment is: chances and challenges. The low fluctuation rate of only 6.5% in 2013, which is way below the industry average, proves that this pays off.

The average age of our employees is 40. This average age, which has remained largely constant for some time, expresses an age structure which is balanced and corresponds to the market requirements: a factor which contributes each day to the success of our Bank.
