Attractive working environment and new ways of working

As Credit Suisse transitions into a new way of working in a post-pandemic environment, we have enabled employees to select their ideal remote-versus-office working split, operating within guidelines set by the management of their respective divisions or functions and agreed upon with their line manager. In July 2021, a global election tool was rolled out throughout Credit Suisse, with over 58% of employees submitting their preferred hybrid work patterns in the tool which resulted in the following preferences: 44% average remote working and 56% office; as of September 2021, eligible staff have begun implementing their hybrid work patterns in regions where a return to the office is now permitted in accordance with local requirements. Transitioning to a hybrid working model should enable our employees to maintain a healthy work-life balance and reduce their carbon footprint associated with the use of public and private transportation when commuting.
