Our culture is a very important part of our strategy, because we believe that companies with strong, productive corporate cultures outperform those without.
We have a unique culture, and it's a winning one. We've learned that sustainability thrives on consistency, and how we accomplish our goals is as important as what we achieve. We've integrated specific behavior expectations into our business practices and also HR practices, including leadership training, recruiting and performance evaluation.
A key factor in our ongoing transformation has been to stress accountability and good leadership at all levels. A few years ago, we outlined our expectations for excellent leadership in The UBS House View on Leadership. Closely linked to our principles and behaviors, we ask our leaders to champion these qualities as individuals and as team heads, and to reflect them in their hiring, development and promotion decisions. They're also embedded into promotion, hiring and development decisions.
