«Cycling to help children in Africa go to school as part of the «Big Ride for Africa» is a really good idea. I am motivated by the opportunity to pursue a goal with my work colleagues outside of the office.»
Alfonso Iannotta, Collections Specialist
UPC places great value on the individual development of its employees. Besides attractive salaries and a modern benefits package, our employees benefit from discounts on our products and are able to test new technologies offered by the company before our customers.
UPC also offers its employees various activities to help them achieve a good work-life balance. Employees can benefit from discounts in the areas of sport, health and wellness. Employees also take part in the «bike to work» campaign or the Zurich Marathon every year.
Once a year, fit employees can cycle for a good cause as part of the Big Ride for Africa. This charity bike ride is organised by the Lessons for Life Foundation, the aid organisation run by Liberty Global, UPC’s parent company. By taking part, cyclists raise money for children in Africa. The Lessons for Life Foundation carries out aid work primarily in sub-Saharan regions.
Each year, our parent company Liberty Global presents the «IN Heroes Awards» for social projects. Around the world, employees who are heavily involved with a social project can apply for the award and win a donation for their charitable organisation.
