After various experiences in Spain, France and Germany, I was transferred internationally to join the Corporate Investment team, where I worked in a challenging environment close to the Chief Financial Officer. My mission was strategic and rewarding since I managed investment and divestment projects with a high degree of responsibility at Group level. Currently I work in the US in New York as Operating Manager of a portfolio of US assets
Enrique Pavel, Senior Operating Manager, New York
We are proud of our teams whose skills lie across a range of diverse disciplines and backgrounds. Fostering an environment which celebrates new ideas, engagement and individual development, we are committed to diversity and promote an inclusive culture where people are positively encouraged to succeed.
We welcome 1.2 billion visitors per year to our shopping centres and strive to ensure that we are as diverse as our customer base in order to meet their needs now and in the future. We understand that to effect meaningful change, it is vital to integrate diversity and inclusion in all we do.
Professional Development for Women in the Group
We empower women and are committed to promoting equal opportunities. We have an internal network that serves as a platform for discussing gender balance issues and developing ideas to help both women and men in their professional development. Dedicated leadership programmes, developed with global consulting firm McKinsey, and keynotes given by renowned and inspiring external speakers are powerful means to inspire women to gain confidence and tackle more challenging assignments. Specific training for top managers, both men and women, to promote a culture of gender-balanced leadership and raise awareness about potential unconscious bias, is also provided.

An International Workforce
Committed to fostering an international work environment where every employee can thrive, we promote diversity at Unibail Rodamco Westfield by offering opportunities for international mobility as well as intercultural training and cross-cultural work teams, which are major factors of individual and career development. We strongly believe that putting forward cross-border programmes and international mobility is key to foster talent.
In ensuring everyone has access to our centres, we supported the Purple Tuesday initiative focused on changing the customer experience for disabled people and just signed the “Inclusion of People with Disabilities in Economic Life” charter, an initiative which aims to ensure that people with disabilities enjoy better inclusion in the workplace.
URW for Jobs and Solidarity Days are two excellent examples of the Group’s commitment to the development of the communities in which it operates. We want to be fully engaged in tackling the social issues of today. As part of my role, I coordinate these social initiatives at Group level in Continental Europe and involve all employee volunteers in this challenge. The most rewarding part is, of course, seeing our impact on the people we support through these actions and on the employees themselves!
Sabine Pompey, CSR Manager
We continue to show our strong commitment to supporting others through the URW Volunteering Programme: a Group initiative enabling all employees to take part in one or more of our community-focused projects, part of our Better Places 2030 CSR strategy.
The first-ever URW Community Day in May 2020 was a great success with over 2,000 employees around the world volunteering more than 12,000 hours to support non-profit organisations in our local areas.
Additionally, many of our employees gave their time and expertise to support the URW for Jobs programme, providing valuable coaching and support to local job seekers to help them find employment. Through this year’s URW for Jobs programme, URW teams have trained over 1,000 candidates.
We also celebrate our long-standing local partnerships on both sides of the Atlantic in various fields from Veterans’ initiatives to raising awareness on career opportunities in Sciences, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) among local female school students.
A major part of our work week is typically spent in the workplace, therefore at Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield it is highly imperative that our employee’s physical and mental health is given major care and constant upkeep.
The Wellbeing Framework at URW has been developed to encapsulate the different elements that are important to help drive Wellbeing within the company.
Healthy Culture – our work culture supports our wellbeing objectives in totality. It involves the way our collective working culture and processes at URW is shaped, our working space organisation, and our culture of encouraging collaboration and sustainability.
Healthy Minds – this involves how we ensure our team members have a clear sense of purpose and job fulfilment, how we encourage flexible thinking and resilience , and the way we support them in challenging situations.
Healthy Bodies – the physical aspects of wellbeing, such as sleep, nutrition, movement and healthcare have been well documented and as an employer we provide our team members with tools for them take adequate care of themselves.
