The story of Avaloq around the world

Being part of Avaloq means working with like-minded professionals in an innovative and dynamic environment. But there’s more to it than that – like how we interact with each other outside of the office, and through social engagement programmes such as Doing Well by Doing Good. Take a look at some of our past events and initiatives below and learn more about what working at Avaloq really means.

Giving children in Helambu, Nepal, access to online education

In 2018, two staff from the Singapore office headed to the earthquake-hit region of Helambu to build computer labs in two schools. As well as providing advice for educators on how to teach basic IT skills to kids and maintain equipment, the duo collaborated with a local non-profit to source monitors, PC's, and much more.

Cleaning up after Switzerland’s largest festival, Züri Fäscht

In July 2019, 20 colleagues from the Zurich office teamed up to clear waste from the annual Züri Fäscht festival. And, with approximately 2 million attendees generating roughly 300 tonnes of waste, the team had their work cut out for them. As well as helping the community, our staff had the opportunity to discover how the city is recycling and re-using such waste.

SOS Kinderdorf – supporting people across the world

Since 2015, we have provided financial support to SOS Kinderdorf, an NGO which aims to improve living conditions for underprivileged families and children in 135 countries. In addition, through our #onamission programme, we collect toys, clothes and educational supplies for an orphanage in Manila.

Doing Well by Doing Good

Doing Well by Doing Good is an annual social engagement programme which sponsors 12 volunteering projects focused on the environment, knowledge sharing, well-being or gender equality.

Making the switch to 100% renewable energy sources

As a software company, our most relevant scope 2 emissions are a result of the electricity consumed at our data centres. That is why we have set our sights high: to ensure 100% of the electricity we consume from the grid is procured from renewable sources.

The green way to travel

With 40 e-bikes at their disposal, our Swiss-based staff have the opportunity to commute to work in a sustainable fashion – as well as use the bikes during their days off.

We also offer discounted railcards to all our Swiss colleagues to help people limit how much they travel by car, with most of our offices located near railway stations.

Starting from the ground up

At the end of 2019, instead of the usual Christmas greetings our clients expected, we delivered something different: planting 20,000 trees in their name – one for each of our clients and staff.

In partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation, we supported a reforestation project in West Papua, Indonesia, focused on replenishing mangroves and tropical forests.

We’ve got our own way of doing things

Life at Avaloq

Our success is deeply rooted in our commitment to our people – without whom we could not deliver world-class solutions to clients. And so, by helping us remain number 1 in the industry, we give back to them by ensuring each and every one has a great working experience – all day, every day.

Gipfeli Meetings – because the best ideas start at the breakfast table

We are proud of our traditions. Once a month everyone at Avaloq, including the leadership team, meets up for breakfast at our famous Friday Gipfeli Meeting. Here, we spend an hour sharing insights and highlighting current events over croissants and coffee. Over the years, it’s been amazing to see how many new ideas have seen the light of day at these informal breakfast meetings.

A modern environment and a great workplace

At Avaloq, we’ll give you the opportunity to use state-of-the-art technology and agile development methodologies so that you can develop a deep understanding of our hardware and software – and improve the services and solutions you provide to clients.

In addition, our modern office facilities are designed to be warm and inviting, creating an atmosphere for our people to inspire and be inspired.

Employee engagement

At Avaloq, your ‘voice’ and perspective matters.

Through our ‘Your voice @ Avaloq’ survey platform, we invite colleagues to share their thoughts, ideas and concerns about Avaloq, giving us insight into what people think of the company culture, their teams and the direction the company is taking. The first survey took place in October 2018, with the engagement rate constantly improving.

Balancing work and life

Our success is deeply rooted in the commitment and passion that shines out from each and every one of us. We know how to work hard and lead our clients to success. At the same time, however, we know the importance of balance, which is why you will see so many of our people engaging in activities outside the office – very often, as a team.
