UBS – Finalist 2018, Government Equalities Office Best Returners Programme Award
The UBS Career Comeback program recruits people who’ve taken a career break – and hires them straight into permanent roles.
All 67 people hired so far, since 2016, have remained with the firm.
Each year’s cohort kicks off with a two-week on boarding program. Participants take part in group coaching sessions and benefit from ongoing coaching throughout the year. Also, they get support from mentors and team buddies and exposure to senior leaders through lunch and learn sessions.
From the outset, hiring managers are trained to understand the value returners bring to the workplace. This training is complemented by line manager coaching where they successfully hire a returner into their team.
