Bring us your open mind so we can open doors

At EY, you’ll find a diverse and inclusive culture, where you're embraced and respected for who you are. We want you to feel like you belong here because your uniqueness helps us to stand apart.

We believe we can solve the toughest challenges together by valuing our differences and teaming inclusively to build safety and trust. Diverse viewpoints are the catalysts that lead to better questions and better answers. That’s when creative ideas flow, igniting innovation and inspiring more effective solutions.

We welcome all people, no matter who they are or what their background. Each of us is different, and we value and respect all EY people.

A diverse and inclusive culture. It’s yours to build.

When people feel valued for their many differences, they feel a part of something greater; they feel like they belong. This can have a powerful effect on performance. When we feel we belong, we feel more confident, competent and secure, able to be ourselves and offer differing viewpoints safe in the knowledge that they will be heard and that they matter. We feel less stressed and more motivated and engaged, more likely to come up with inspired contributions. We feel like trusted insiders.

We want all EY people to experience that feeling of belonging, yet the increasing diversity of EY teams can also make it harder to feel like you belong. By building truly inclusive teams, we can grow that sense of belonging for all team members and create a virtuous cycle: the more you feel you belong, the more you will behave inclusively.

We each have multiple aspects of our identity, many of which may not be visible to others. How much we share differs from person to person depending on factors such as personality and culture, but also on how safe we feel. By being open and showing we care we help to build trust, allowing you to reveal more of who you are to inspire fuller and better contributions.

We foster high-performing teams by having a shared vision, by engaging each member in discussions and decisions, by supporting each other professionally and personally, by investing in each other's success and by making everyone feel they belong.

We’re more than 365,000 different perspectives

In today’s fast-changing environment, diversity is crucial to success in the global economy. Limiting diversity means limiting the innovation and insight it inspires. Our competitive advantage depends on the ability to make the most of the different opinions, experiences and cultural references of all EY people. By doing so we can identify the risks and opportunities we might not otherwise see, and better capitalize on them.

We know that diverse and inclusive teams make the working world better. By drawing on different perspectives and exchanging ideas freely across borders, we stimulate innovation, foster collaboration and deepen relationships. This increases organizational agility and strengthens resilience to disruption. It drives better decision-making and, ultimately, growth.

We are committed to creating an environment where everyone feels valued. Our focus on diversity and inclusiveness is integral to how we serve clients, develop EY people and play a leadership role in communities around the world.

Working with us, you’ll be encouraged to embrace diversity in all its forms. You’ll have the chance to work in global teams comprised of diverse talents and experiences that combine to produce smarter and better services.

Allied with inspiring and rewarding opportunities to work across borders and cultures, you’ll be able to embrace and learn from many different viewpoints.

By being open and curious, and valuing the differences in those you work alongside, you’ll find that you expand your perspectives and, ultimately, provide better answers for your clients and communities.

We offer an inclusive work environment where you’ll be respected for your differences as well as your skills and talents, so you can contribute your personal best every day.

We are strongly committed to equal opportunity and are embedding D&I in all processes, from recruitment to assignments, from career management to recognition.

We encourage dialogue among EY people to promote understanding, build our inclusive culture, and drive innovation and exceptional service for clients. A variety of professional networks provide a supportive community and build awareness of diverse attributes to promote inclusiveness.

  • Development and advancement

    a. Onboarding

    We know that starting a new career especially at EY can be overwhelming. That’s why, we strive to make the start easier by providing structured onboarding that is tailored to the different needs from our business areas. On your first day at work, you will get to know EY as an employer and build up your network with interesting colleagues during the "Welcome to EY" onboarding training. Right from the start, we will provide you with contact persons and mentors who will accompany you individually on your journey at EY.

    b. Further education and training

    We unleash your potential: with individual training, valuable experience, the latest technologies and personal support to help you achieve your career goals.

    It's much more than just training. It's also about your individual guidance and the support that will help you grow personally. At EY, you'll benefit from gaining real-world experience and having opportunities that will help you change, develop, and create a better working world.

    One of our continuous learning program is the "EY Badges", with which you can further educate yourself in future topics such as digitalization, data & analytics, blockchain, leadership and teaming.

    With the EY Badges, you can also earn an Tech MBA by Hult University alongside your career, which underline your commitment and skills not only to your colleagues, but also to your clients. You can also integrate the awards into your profile on LinkedIn.

    c. Professional Exams

    We support you in preparing for professional exams with time off, paid special leave and financial assistance. Our offer applies, for example, to the exams for someone to become a Tax Consultant, Auditor, Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA), Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) or Certified Public Accountant (CPA).

  • Working environment

    a. Latest tech equipment

    To ensure optimal work, we aim to provide latest tech equipment and workstation in our offices. You can choose your preferred smartphone upon joining the company, which you can also use privately. Be spoilt for choices with different providers and even higher-priced models if you pay extra. Every two years you have the option of replacing your smartphone with a new one.

    b. Public transport

    All employees on a permanent contract, except for the holders of a Swiss rail pass paid by EY and Hourly Paid employees, are entitled to receive a half fare travelcard. This rule also applies to employees working part-time (also those working less than 50%) as well as "Interns" with a minimum employment of six months.

    c. Catering

    At the Zurich office, the in-house canteen managed by ZFV provides four menu options daily and a wide range of salad options. At other locations, we provide subsidies: free drinks, fruit baskets and food to go are also available in all branches.

    d. Cooperations and discounts

    We offer numerous cooperations and discounts on travel, cultural and leisure activities as well as offers from the media, technology and fashion sectors. Our partner, Benefits at work, sends out a monthly newsletter informing you about seasonal discount offers.

    e. Car Leasing

    We offer various leasing packages through the different authorized dealers, which can include all the costs associated with a vehicle. Leasing period and mileage can also be chosen individually. The range of vehicles is wide and there are attractive special conditions.

  • Pension and Insurance

    a. Company pension plans

    At EY, you can pay into a company pension plan via a direct insurance policy or into the pension fund in the form of deferred compensation.

    b. Insurance

    Numerous insurance benefits are available to our employees. EY works with various health insurance companies to offer attractive additional insurance packages. In addition, employees are covered by travel health insurance when traveling abroad on business. In addition, our employees benefit from group accident insurance. The insurance cover extends worldwide to all accidents in both the professional and private spheres.

  • Employees’ Networks

    a. Professional Women’s Network

    This initiative offers all female employees at EY tailored development guidance for their next career step: from learning opportunities to mentoring and coaching to peer exchange as part of the monthly network meetings.

    The common barriers many women face at the workplace are related to gender norms, confidence gap and limiting beliefs, penalties for being mothers or not seeing the possibility to combine a successful career with a fulfilling life. These barriers need to be removed both in the minds of the women and in the view of the organization.

    In addition, we have a certification from Fair-ON-pay that regulates equal pay for all genders, which will be reviewed and re-certified every four years.

    b. BAME (Black, Asian, Minority Ethnicity)

    Our internal network for ethnic and cultural diversity is aimed at all colleagues with an immigrant background and all interested parties (allies). Many people of color may feel disconnected or disengaged at work, and not fully connected to their peers. There is often the feeling of need to adjust their style of speech, appearance, behavior and expression in ways that make others comfortable. The network seeks to build a more inclusive culture at EY.

    c. Purple Champions

    Our internal network "Purple Champions" is aimed at our colleagues with disabilities and interested parties. Together, the members organize regular meetings and real talks for all EY employees to further promote Disability Confidence in the company. Disability is part of our efforts to strengthen the leadership pipeline in EMEIA and we are working to break down any barriers to inclusion so that people of all abilities can be successful at EY.

    Partnering with MyAbility helped us build a fairer and equal society. We aim to create an conducive work environment consisting of experts with and without disabilities by creating professional solutions for all stakeholders that generate social impact and are economically sustainable.

    d. Unity (LGBT+ Network)

    Our internal network "Unity" has over 200 members and brings together our LGBTQIA+ community and its Allies.

    Members organize regular meetings and impulses together. There are also regular activities to promote LGBTQIA+ awareness in the workplace.

    'LGBT+' was embraced as an effective solution to use a term that more accurately reflects the growing diversity of the community, while remaining simple and clear. We also like the positivity inherent in the use of the "plus" symbol.

  • Diverse

    a. Teaming

    Teamwork is particularly important to us. To promote this and recognize the commitment of our employees, we hold regular departmental meetings and celebrations, as well as Christmas gatherings, summer parties and office events. As the world's most integrated audit and consulting firm, we also support collaboration across national borders, not only through secondments, but also through project-related exchanges and virtual mobility. We also work very intensively with the employees from our shared service centers in Poland and India.

    b. Bring a friend

    We reward every successful referral of new colleagues with a bonus of up to CHF 10’000 (e.g. Senior Manager).

    c. Bonuses for family events

    We grant up to two days of paid leaves for weddings, funerals and relocation.

    d. Anniversary / Loyalty rewards

    For various service anniversaries (e.g. 10, 15, 20 years, etc.), we grant special off-days and payments of up to CHF 5’000
