WORKYOURWAY INSIDER VIEW

After seeing the results that remote working can have during the pandemic, hybrid working became a core part of the workplace culture at UBS. They believe that flexible working is essential, as it allows them to retain a more diverse group of employees who may have different requirements that need to be met through these flexible working options. 

What we love about UBS:

💡 The use of technology to offer support to those who work remotely, increasing engagement and productivity. 

💡 Empowering employees to decide a way of working that works best for them.  

What's worth checking about UBS:

💡 Traders, branch staff and those whose roles require on-site presence have little/no flexibility. 

Articles about UBS:

💡 UBS to offer 100% remote work option for eligible US-based employees 

💡 UBS to let most staff mix working from home and office permanently


Flexible Working Approach

Hybrid working is becoming the norm in many teams at UBS, and a core part of our workplace culture. And, it’s not just current employees who benefit. 

Our hybrid working model helps us attract – and retain – a larger and more diverse group of employees, including early-career talent, working parents and those in continuing education. Hybrid working’s emphasis on technology and virtual collaboration also sparks the innovative thinking that makes us more agile and helps us further improve clients’ (and colleagues’) experiences.We’ve also recently accelerated the roll-out of new ways of working across the firm. In particular, agile working practices – and multi-disciplinary agile teams, where this makes sense – will help us be more responsive, adaptive and innovative in everything we do.
