We are responsible

At UBS, corporate responsibility means 'doing the right thing' both now and in the future.

This applies to our responsibility as an organization and our behavior as individuals. It also means that our products and services support our clients in addressing today's societal challenges and achieving their (financial) goals at the same time.

We understand that to be taken seriously as a responsible corporate citizen takes time, and that a solid track record is crucial.

How we do business
 

Our principles and standards clearly define how we want to do things. These apply to all aspects of our business and the ways in which we engage with our stakeholders. We expect all our employees to adhere to them. As global firm we recognize our responsibility to lead the debate on important societal topics, contribute to the setting of standards and collaboration in and beyond our industry. Living up to our principles and standards contributes to the wider societal goal of sustainable development.

How we support our clients

Our clients are increasingly concerned about societal challenges. They want to use their resources for the benefit and advancement of individuals, communities and societies around the globe. As a global firm, and the world’s largest wealth manager, we are in a unique position to support them in this. Being their trusted financial advisor, we recognize this responsibility and take it seriously. Our products and services allow us to help clients make a real difference.

How we support our communities

We actively engage with communities around the globe. Our aim is to overcome disadvantages by supporting education and entrepreneurship through a combination of targeted funding and the commitment and skills of our employees. Working hand in hand with our partners gives us a better understanding of the needs and requirements of the communities we do business in. Based on this, we can deliver long-term, sustainable and measurable benefits to these communities.

We invest in your skills

Find out more about learning and development opportunities

We strive for excellence in all we do, and this begins with our employees. We are committed to helping our employees develop their skills and careers while at the same time giving them the framework they need to meet our clients' evolving needs.

Our approach

At UBS, we take an integrated approach to managing our talent. This allows us to link our recruitment, diversity, learning, mobility, performance management, talent review, compensation and succession practices in the most meaningful way. Our efforts focus on giving our employees and leaders what they need to excel in their roles, progress in their careers, and ultimately create value for our shareholders.

Training is a key part of our talent management process. Our Group-wide learning and development course offerings encompass senior leadership development, business education and practical training measures for employees at all levels.

Business education

We actively develop our current and future leaders. We focus especially on strengthening their ability to lead people in line with our principles and to implement our strategy. We also place particular emphasis on training that enables our businesses to achieve their goals. For example, in Wealth Management Americas, select candidates for financial advisor roles are hired into a two-year, salaried training program that enables them to obtain relevant licensing, training and practical experience in a US branch office before joining a team as a full financial advisor.

Most of our business education is offered through specific learning pathways. Sequential courses in areas such as risk, compliance, sales, advisory and financial markets help ensure consistent training across similar job roles.

All employees can access development opportunities on the job and through eLearning and targeted training programs, as well as through customized training and coaching. Employees are also expected to consider career and skill development opportunities as part of the firm’s performance management process.

Our eLearning portfolio consists of more than 5,100 courses on topics such as communication skills, management and leadership, financial markets and IT. In 2013, our global employee population participated in about 776,000 development activities, including approximately 512,000 mandatory training sessions focusing on compliance and regulatory topics. This equated to an average of 12.5 training experiences per employee or an average of 2.5 training days.
