Commitments of the association
The Swiss Bankers Association (SBA) is committed to ensuring that the Swiss financial centre offers the best possible environment for lifelong learning, especially with regard to digital and sustainability skills.
Future-proof capabilities that can be applied to any profession, such as networked thinking, problem-solving, receptiveness to learning, communication, creativity, a critical mindset and working as part of a team are also vital.
These are becoming ever more important in view of the megatrends of digital transformation, artificial intelligence, new business models, roles and job profiles and professions, as well as the increasing demands of the job market in terms of professional mobility, flexibility, complexity and globalisation.
The SBA has forged partnerships with start-ups in the training sector that have created platforms listing ongoing career development courses for bank staff, where they can gain a quick, convenient overview of the training options that match their interests:
With an eye to the new generation of young people interested in a career in banking, the SBA is involved in formulating new learning objectives regarding sustainability in the reformed commercial apprenticeship that comes into force in 2023.
