Caixanova is a bank which arose from a merger between Caixavigo (founded in 1880), Caixa Ourense (1932) and Caixa de Pontevedra (1930) which took place between 1999 and 2000. Together with the Banco Gallego, who own 50% of Caixanova capital stock, the leading financial institution in Galicia made up of a savings bank and a regular bank, with a business volume of around 50,000 million euros.
As of the 30th of June 2009, the bank employs a staff of 3,294 people, an increase of 3.72% with respect to the previous year. The bank’s commitment to the creation of stable, rewarding employment is clearly reflected in all the highly professional employees retained by Caixanova on open-ended contracts. The growth of the bank has also seen a parallel commitment to new values, which have resulted in a workforce which is constantly striving to remain at the cutting edge through extensive continuous training. Our employment statistics also reflect the progress we have made in terms of equality between men and women, through our implementation of a policy of salary parity.
