Well-being and health management

The purpose of driving a holistic well-being strategy is to:

  • Educate our employees to prevent ill health wherever possible
  • Encourage positive well-being behaviors
  • Provide tactical interventions to try to ensure rapid diagnosis, treat conditions quickly and support all employees throughout their employment with Credit Suisse.

We provide a wealth of resources that are designed to raise awareness of the importance of well-being, reduce the stigma of mental health issues and encourage open, honest conversations. A key message for employees throughout the pandemic has been that the health and well-being of our colleagues remains the Executive Board’s utmost priority. This has been complemented by the upskilling of managers and by offering advice to employees on how to access help, as well as providing tip sheets.

Our aim is to encourage employees to build up their resilience in the face of an increasingly challenging environment and to support them with targeted measures. In Switzerland, the Corporate Health Management Committee (CHMC) initiates and coordinates a range of events and campaigns, and it provides digital tools to support employees. As a result of our various efforts in this space, Credit Suisse in Switzerland was assigned the “Friendly Work Space” label by Health Promotion Switzerland (Gesundheitsförderung Schweiz).
