With effect from March 31, 2004, Landesbank NRW has become NRW.BANK. While the bank has been given a new name, a new legal foundation and a new structure in many respects, it remains what it has effectively always been - the development bank for North Rhine-Westphalia.
Reorganisations such as their's make special demands. A new structure needs to be found, new forms need to be defined and a new profile needs to be developed. This requires a great effort but it also opens up scope for new approaches and a shared will to achieve and create.
The Mission Statement encapsulates NRW.BANK’s mission in concise and easily understandable statements, ensuring that the institution speaks with a single voice and projects a clear message to the public.
The Mission Statement of NRW.BANK was developed and discussed in two workshops attended by the Managing Board, representatives of the business units and members of the Executive Circle.
Their Vision Statement summarises what NRW.BANK stands for under the title “Clear ambitions, shared aspirations”.
The development of theirr Vision Statement was governed by the motto “for their employees, from theirr employees”. Jointly drafted by 18 employees from various NRW.BANK units and the Chairman of the Managing Board over a period of six months, it was presented to employees at a special event in June 2005.
