Our employees regularly build new skills in their daily work and through opportunities like stretch assignments, special projects, internal mobility, and both formal and informal mentoring relationships.
Training is also a regular part of everyone's experience. We have numerous courses in leadership development, business education and practical training, plus specialized options for specific divisions, regions and roles.
All employees can access eLearning and in-person training through our in-house UBS University, and we require all employees to complete certain specialized modules on conduct, risk, finance, compliance and other topics. These trainings add up. In 2019, our permanent employees participated in:
more than 1,100,000 learning activities
more than two days of training for each employee
What's it like to work here?
Global demographic changes mean that people are working longer in a rapidly changing environment. Training and personal development are more important than ever, so many of our classes and events target experienced employees across the firm. One example is a lifelong learning initiative for employees in Switzerland (age 45+) that includes personal career planning sessions, language skills courses and social media training.
