Attracting talent

In 2020, our recruitment experts continued to collaborate with hiring managers to source from the external market, internal talent pool and through employee referrals. We managed to do so in a virtual environment, ensuring the health and safety of our employees and new hires amid the global pandemic. As such, we implemented video interviewing so candidates could interview from the safety of their own homes. We also introduced virtual Welcome Day orientation programs and adopted a virtual approach for collecting all necessary documentation and securing IT access in order to support a seamless start on day 1 for our new joiners.

In 2020, Credit Suisse was recognized with over 50 awards, across recruitment, virtual recruitment, employer attractiveness, employer branding and diversity and inclusion categories, from institutions such as Forbes, Universum and eFinancial Careers.
