UBS maintains direct contact with representatives from the political sphere, public authorities, supervisory authorities and international bodies. UBS also works closely with national and international business associations.
UBS expressly supports the political involvement of its employees. Almost 300 employees currently hold political office at the federal, cantonal and communal level. If necessary, employees may spend a certain amount of their working time on their public duties. UBS organizes an annual event at which senior management and political office holders discuss topics that are of relevance for UBS in Switzerland.
