We are pleased to announce that we have renewed a partnership with Erste&Steiermärkische Bank d.d. who is part of the Erste Group Bank which is one of the largest financial services providers in Central and Eastern Europe, with 46,000 employees serving 15.8 million clients in 2,500 branches in 7 countries (Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Hungary, Croatia and Serbia). Erste&Steiermärkische Bank d.d. is an universal bank geared to retail customers and small and medium-sized businesses positioned as the third biggest bank in Croatia. If we count just the last several years, the number of awards handed to Erste bank is simply astonishing: Golden Kuna (Bank of the year), SoMo Fighter Award, Zagreb Stock Exchange Award, Euromoney – Best private banking service, Employer Partner Certificates, and many more. Being in the top of the Croatia banking industry holds a great responsibility to customers, employees, environment and society. That is why Erste continuously evaluates its` work, position and perception from all the stakeholders. Corporate social responsibility is of great importance for the banking sector, which is why Erste&Steiermärkische Bank takes this matter very seriously and is recognized as a partner that everyone can trust. Although banking is often perceived as standardized and plain (from the customer perspective), Erste continues to prove it wrong. Constant innovations of products, services and processes with significant simplifications for end users make Erste one of the most creative and innovative banks in Croatia. We are truly convinced that exchange of knowledge, experience and creative thinking will lead us both to new achievements and great results.
