We also believe that collective ideas bring results and drive progress: great work is never done alone.

Each of us is more than one person, we’re more than ourselves.

We reimagine the power of investing and we want you to join our journey.

Our Digital Factory

is a new co-working space where UBS colleagues from all areas come together to innovate, create and challenge the status quo.

Our various innovation labs

play a central role in our global innovation strategy, allowing our teams to engage with local fintech ecosystems and explore local trends in our key markets and businesses. To date, we have activated multiple Labs and innovation outposts all over the globe.

We reimagine our careers

We have ambition to drive progress. We will only be as good as our desire and agility to respond to change. From gaining new experiences in different roles to learning new things - we never stop growing and learning because life never stops teaching. We take ownership of our results and do more than we thought possible. This is what opens new doors to the future – for ourselves, our clients, and our firm.

The UBS University

gives all our employees the opportunity to learn and develop through a diverse range of offerings. It emphasizes future-skills development and personal growth for all employees.

A new digital skills curriculum

Our Career Navigator

is a platform that supports our employees with internal mobility. It’s a game changer and enables them to explore career paths and search for open roles that match their interests, while allowing our recruiters to find internal talent more easily. It also identifies skill gaps with regard to new roles and interests, and directly links to learning opportunities to help fill these gaps.

An inclusive culture and diverse workforce are crucial to our long-term success. Diversity and inclusion matter in our business. An inclusive and diverse workforce makes us better leaders and contributes to a more innovative, dynamic and, ultimately, a more successful company. And, variety helps us meet the needs of our diverse client base. We are especially focused on hiring, retaining and promoting more women across the firm. We're working hard to build a culture where everyone feels welcome, respected, and is a valuable part of our team – wherever in UBS they work.
