Attracting and retaining talent

In 2021, our recruitment experts continued to collaborate with hiring managers to source professionals from the external market and our internal talent pool, as well as through employee referrals. We operated in a mostly virtual environment, ensuring the health and safety of our employees and new hires during the global pandemic. As such, we continued to prioritize video interviewing so candidates could speak to us from their own homes. We also continued to offer virtual Welcome Day programs and a virtual approach for collecting all the necessary documentation and providing IT access for a seamless start on day one for our new joiners.

In 2021, Credit Suisse received numerous awards across the recruitment, virtual recruitment, employer attractiveness, employer branding and diversity and inclusion categories, from organizations such as Forbes, Universum and eFinancial Careers. We aim to achieve a broad, balanced and diverse representation of society in our workforce so that employees have a sense of belonging and are able to realize their full potential.
