The LLB Group employs people from 36 nations. Our success is based on the diversity of our employees and managers. The LLB Group aims to create an environment of appreciation for all employees, regardless of their nationality, age, gender, educational background, etc. The different skills, cultures and viewpoints make us a pioneering company.
Even if we do not have a specific programme in place to promote diversity, people of different nationalities working together has been commonplace at our Group for many years. In 2017, 30 percent of our employees were Liechtenstein nationals, 42 percent Swiss and 14 percent were Austrian nationals. We are committed to ensuring that our client base is reflected in our employee mix (see “Regional employer”). This also applies to our traditional cross-border markets in Germany and the rest of Western Europe as well as to the growth markets of Central and Eastern Europe and the Middle East.
The proportion of women working for the LLB Group is relatively high at 43 percent, though they are still under-represented in leadership positions. However, the growing number of well-educated women is bound to effect change in this area in the next few years. The Board of Directors and management support the culture of diversity. In July 2016, the first woman was appointed to the Group Executive Board (see chapter “Corporate governance”).
Women in management positions:
- Executive management: 5 men, 1 woman
- Senior management: 24 men, 1 woman
The Board of Directors of LLB, which is publicly listed, has been characterised by an above-average proportion of women since 2014. With two out of the seven members women, they represent almost 30 percent of the board members.
