The Certification captures the voice of employees and demonstrates that the company is an "Employer of Choice."

Commenting on the achievements, Michael Blake, Asia CEO at UBP said, “I am delighted that UBP has been recognised as one of the Best Places to Work in Singapore and Hong Kong in our first year of participation. This result reflects the Bank’s commitment to creating a vibrant, entrepreneurial and fun working environment which attracts, retains, develops and rewards the very best talent in the wealth management industry.
I would like to extend my thanks to all colleagues for their constructive feedback throughout the assessment process. HR excellence is a journey rather than a destination and we will use this valuable feedback to further improve our people practices in the future.”
“At Best Places to Work, we believe that a positive working environment greatly influences employees’ attitudes towards their work, co-workers and work productivity, and it is our goal to help organisations transform the culture of their workplace by identifying strengths, uncovering weaknesses and providing advice and guidance to spark change and inspire people. Congratulations to UBP for the great results in its first year of participation, and we look forward to celebrating many more future successes with you”, said Hamza Idrissi, Global Program Director for the Best Places to Work organization.
