About United Overseas Bank
Our culture is welcoming, warm and friendly and it is one where you will feel like part of a family. There is a camaraderie among us and a strong sense of purpose and belonging. We work towards the common goal of being our best every day, as individuals, professionals and members of a larger community.
Our values define us
Our history spans more than 80 years. Over this time, we have been guided by our values — Honourable, Enterprising, United and Committed. This means we always strive to do what is right, build for the future, work as one team and pursue long-term success. It is how we work, consistently, be it towards the company, our colleagues or our customers.
Our strengths unite us
We believe people are our greatest asset. We seek to bring out the best in everyone through a wide range of employee programmes. These include programmes that develop professional skills, entrepreneurship, personal wellness and a community spirit. We also focus on helping people with special needs to be their best through inclusive employment initiatives that tailor career opportunities to their strengths.
Our passion fuels us
We encourage original thinking in every way, whether it is about breaking new ground in business or nurturing Asia’s future talent in the world of art. We conduct innovation workshops and employees hackathons to design commercially viable solutions for real-life banking challenges. We also leverage our strengths in business to drive UOB Heartbeat, our corporate social responsibility programme. This brings employees, customers and business partners together to raise funds through volunteer activity and to give back to the community. UOB plays an active role in communities across the region, most notably through our long-term support of art. Over the last four decades, we have championed art in Singapore and Southeast Asia through a wide range of visual arts programmes, partnerships, exhibitions and outreach initiatives. Among them is the UOB Painting of the Year, Singapore’s longest-running art competition and one of the most prestigious in Southeast Asia.
