Culture and History:
Founded in 1857, the history of BBVA is the story of many people who have formed part of over a hundred financial institutions that progressively joined together to widen business horizons.
BBVA's international activities started in 1902 when Banco de Bilbao opened a branch in Paris followed by London in 1918. In 1995 the Company started to develop an international expansion strategy that led to the creation of a large network in Latin America. In 2006 BBVA signed a strategic alliance with Chinese CITIC Group, in 2007 purchased Compass Bank in the U.S., and in 2010 acquired a 24,9% of Turkiye Garanti Bankasi AS, the leading bank in Turkey.
BBVA has its eyes firmly fixed on the future and is a pioneer in technology and in adapting to the changing requirements of an increasingly global market, in short, to the bank of the 21st century.
Regarding Corporative Culture, the main features we aim to promote are a customer-centric approach, teamwork, healthy ambition, high ethical standards, focus on results, humility and simplicity. These characteristics make BBVA one of the best companies to work for.

Training and Development
As a leading company for training and development, the group spends around €40 million a year on training programmes, with an average of 41 hours training for each employee, or 5.4 million hours across the group. This investment has a two-fold objective: responding to customer needs as well as those of BBVA staff. Its training programmes focus on customer service, customer business, finance, risk management and skills, innovation, technology and languages.
BBVA’s approach is based on three principles: placing the best professionals in the best positions; combining workplace training with more specialised training; and ensuring transparent and fair opportunities across the entire group.
Finance is one of the key areas in BBVA’s training program and strenghtens the specialization and update of our professionals. It includes certifications and qualifications such as CFA, FRM, CIA and CAIA.
Around 20% of the people in BBVA get promoted every year.
BBVA is an equal opportunity employer and has a firm commitment to gender diversity. A clear example is 53% of our professionals are women. This drive is organized through a global diversity plan, which aims to boost the role of women in the Group by making it easier for them to work and laying the foundations for a harmonious balance between work and family life. The program is focused on three key areas for action (maternity, promotion and development and awareness). It has led to the launch of eight corporate initiatives so far, as well as others at a local level.
