Disability

We believe a disability-aware strategy goes beyond workplace adjustments. Here are a few of our initiatives:

  • To help us hire more effectively, UBS is a member of MyPlus Consulting.
  • In 2018, we began the journey to introduce remote captioning so employees with hearing impairments can engage with our global townhalls and shareholder meetings.
  • Interested employees can join a disAbility Network in Switzerland or the UK. We focus on awareness, education, recruitment, retention, support and accessibility for both clients and employees.
  • In the UK and US, our Headscape network helps build a more mentally healthy workspace. UBS has also joined "This is Me," a pioneering London-wide mental health campaign. Our This is Me film premiered at Mental Health Awareness Week 2017.
  • UBS provides dyslexic employees globally with accessibility software to support their reading and writing in the workplace.
  • To raise awareness of disabilities and strengthen their understanding, some of our senior leaders volunteered to get a glimpse of what it could be like to work with a physical impairment. As an inclusive employer, we are committed to supporting our people, whatever comes their way. Watch the video.
