About SKB bank

 

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

We strive for the well-being of the environment in which we operate and do business.

 

At SKB Bank, we make sure that our focus on sustainable business touches all areas: sports, nature and the environment, culture, our employees and, as part of charity, all those who can achieve their goals through our support.

SPORTS

SKB Bank has been the main sponsor of the Olympic Committee of Slovenia since the very beginning of the Olympic movement in the independent Slovenia. We have been a sponsor of top athlete Maruša Mišmaš for several years, and we also support as a sponsor the running team Priprave (Preparation), with whom we prepare several times per year various challenges for our clients, employees and all those who follow us on social networks. This way, we encourage them to do something good for their health.

Sponsor of the Slovenian Olympic team

Since the very beginning of the Olympic movement in independent Slovenia in 1993, SKB has been the main sponsor of the Slovenian Olympic team.

Cooperation with the Olympic Committee of Slovenia (OCS) dates back to the beginning of its operation, so SKB is considered one of the first Slovenian companies which decided to support and spread the Olympic values in Slovenia.

CULTURE

We are aware of the importance of culture and arts, so we decided to support Slovenian cultural activity and became a proud sponsor of the SNG Opera and Ballet Ljubljana. Culture gives us inspiration, relaxes us, and takes us into the world of art. We are happy to invite our clients and employees to these magical moments and enable them to participate in exceptional performances by Slovenian and foreign artists. We also support young musical talents who present their work at the traditional charity Manager’s Concert.

NATURE

With the project "SKB with nature in the city", SKB Bank has been a part of urban beekeeping for several years, and it this way it contributes to the preservation of bees and their living space. Carniolan honey bees (kranjske sivke) are our friends who produce delicious urban honey every year on the terrace of the SKB office building.

March 26 - Day of planting honey plants

At SKB Bank, we have joined the pan-Slovenia campaign of planting honey plants, and we will distribute as many as 2,000 sets of their seeds among employees, clients and visitors to the capital. As part of the cooperation with the Slovenian Beekeepers' Association, we also donated 100 honey trees, which will be planted on this year's day of planting honey plants.

SKB urban bee house

The fact is that bees are an endangered species, probably also due to the overuse of stimulants and protective agents in agriculture. In cities, such agents are used to a lesser extent, which makes it easier for bees to survive in urban environments.

Therefore, urban beekeeping has become one of the possible solutions for the survival of bees, who return our care for them by pollinating plants and giving us sweet honey.

EMPLOYEES

We strive to encourage our clients and employees to take a sustainable view of the world and the environment around us. We do this through small but friendly actions – a good practice is a book exchange, where employees bring a book they have read and take away unread books. In this way, we support the sustainable exchange of books and promote reading culture. SKB Sports Association with more than a third of the Bank’s employees as members has been very active at SKB Bank.

We place great emphasis on education and employee development, so we encourage our employees to continuous growth. As part of the strategy and development program, we employ experts of various profiles and create new jobs that were unusual for the Bank until recently. Thus, the Bank is increasingly becoming an employer with a multidisciplinary team of experts.

CHARITY

At SKB, we believe that the future rests on young people. The year 2020 was not easy for many young people and children, so we closed the year with the charitable support of the Association of Friends of Youth, which cares for the well-being of children and adolescents.

As part of the support to urban beekeeping, in 2021 we donated funds to the Slovenian Beekeepers' Association and thus thanked Slovenian bees for everything they do for our environment and us. At the end of 2021, as part of the #vztrajam (#persist), movement, we prepared a #vztrajam (#persist) project: We support good deeds by encouraging employees, clients and all those who follow SKB Bank to do something good.

#Vztrajam

Do you have goals for which you have to persevere day after day, week after week?

People keep setting goals in our lives. Someone would like to pass the last exam and finish their education with a diploma, another one wants to lose some extra kilograms, the fourth is trying to successfully complete a business project, the fifth's great success is to move more every day, learn to meditate or get rid of some bad habit, etc.

We are aware that only a healthy and happy environment is one in which we can also do business successfully.
