  • Danske Bank has swept Business in the Community’s recent 2019 Responsible Business Awards, coming away with four awards.

    Each year, the Prince's Responsible Business Network runs its Business in the Community Responsible Business Awards, recognising local companies that have worked hard to live up to the standards of responsible business. This year's awards saw a wide range of winners from across the local business and tech scene, with Danske Bank picking up a massive four awards.

    Danske won the category awards for Responsible Digital Innovation, Diversity and Inclusion, and Wellbeing at Work. They also went on to win the top award at the event to be named the NI Responsible Company of the Year 2019. The awards come following Danske's continued efforts in digital integration and transformation for business without losing the "human touch" in its online activities.

    The Bank was also lauded for its digital training schemes for employees, which focus on enabling staff to more effectively support customers and include the launch of a digital startup hub in Belfast city centre. The top prize was awarded on the back of the Bank's recent implementation of a wide range of corporate responsibility initiatives, demonstrating its commitment to responsible business.

    Kevin Kingston, Chief Executive, Danske Bank, said: "It is an absolute honour to be named Responsible Company of the Year by Business in the Community. Responsibility is embedded right at the heart of our business strategy. For us, it’s about focusing our time and effort on where we can make positive societal impacts and we do this through a wide range of initiatives and partnerships right across Northern Ireland."
