Open-minded, open to all
The Pictet Group supports diversity and inclusion, and our employment opportunities are open to all qualified candidates. We aspire to have a highly diverse workforce with a unique range of skills, distinctive talent and varied perspectives.
We want to create a culture that enables all our employees to develop and reach their full potential. We believe that diversity of thought and independence of mind create an inclusive working environment which fosters the pursuit of excellence. This in turn also enables us to best serve the interests of our diverse client base and build long-lasting partnerships within the communities in which we operate.
“We are not aspiring to be the biggest financial group; we want to be a responsible firm we all feel proud to work for.”
We actively support the promotion of an inclusive culture. As an equal opportunity employer, we seek to provide employment and advancement opportunities to all individuals without regard to gender identity, race, ethnicity, age, disability, religion, political affiliation, sexual orientation, marital or parental status or any other personal characteristic. We believe in valuing our differences and ensuring that everyone can bring their true self to work.
Self-governed networks enable employees to foster open dialogue and influence positive action, including on the subjects of race and ethnicity (Race at Work Forum) and gender advancement (Pictet Women’s Network). Specific leadership, mentoring and sponsorship programs have also been developed.
To further support our employees at different stages of their careers and lives, we offer numerous competitive benefits and policies in relation to family care, including parental leave and eldercare. Flexible working arrangements are also available to all employees to encourage work life balance.
Our aim to promote greater diversity and inclusion extends beyond our business, to the industry and the communities in which we operate.
We have established partnerships with organisations that not only provide support to our employees in their personal and professional lives, but also allow us to make a difference in areas such as socio-economic mobility, disability, minority and gender representation. We also encourage employees to give back to their communities and participate in charitable engagement.
Pictet Group awarded global EDGE “Move” Certification for fostering an inclusive and gender equal workplace
This is a major achievement for the Group, as Pictet has successfully raised its global EDGE certification from Level 1 (Assess) in 2019 to Level 2 (Move).
The results of a detailed third-party audit show the considerable progress made over the past three years in workplace gender equality and inclusiveness of our culture. We were assessed in the following areas: women representation, gender pay equity, effectiveness of policies and practices to ensure equitable career flows, and organisational culture.
“We’re delighted to be officially recognized for everything we’ve done to promote gender equity, aligned with our ambition to be an employer of choice. We’ll continue to work relentlessly towards a culture of inclusion at all levels of the organisation.”
