UBS offers talented individuals around the world a challenging, diverse and supportive working environment in which passion, commitment and hard work are valued and rewarded. We actively encourage our employees to share experiences and learn from each other within networks of common interest, up and down reporting lines, and across areas of responsibility - not only during their time at UBS but also afterwards. Currently, more than 14,500 employees across UBS are members of over 20 employee networks. These networks, representing affinities such as gender, culture, life stage or sexual orientation, help build cross-business relationships and an open workplace. Members get together regularly for career development workshops, social events and supportive panel discussions. We enable our employees to set up or join employee networks in all our operating regions and locations.
