The internationally renowned Great Place to Work Institute (GPTW) has named UMB the best Swiss employer five times in a row, and since last year we are the best employer in Europe. This success sets us apart from any other company. UMB is exceptional and now GPTW has confirmed that our training of young talents is also outstanding.


Sensational trust index among trainees

Great Place to Work Switzerland evaluates companies' efforts on behalf of apprentices through a detailed apprenticeship report. Additionally, trainees provide anonymous feedback through surveys. These results contribute to the trust index, which assesses the quality of training and the company's culture. Roger Schweingruber, the team leader in charge of young talents, comments: "The sensational trust index of the Great Start survey proves how much UMB's young talents appreciate our corporate culture, team spirit, and the respectful way we treat them."

Based on these outstanding results, Great Place to Work Switzerland has awarded us the 'Great Start!' award, establishing us as one of the best apprenticeship companies in Switzerland.
