Does anyone know what devices UBS provides in regards to WFH accommodations? Will a work laptop be provided or do I have to use my personal device?

Each department might have different policies, but for my group, I was able to use my own expense allowance to purchase a new desktop. In terms of access, everything is cloud based, so you can use any computer (need an initial setup) and you can log in to the network. Authentication can be done using a mobile phone or your ID card. You can also check email through the mobile outlook app. The technology in place for WFH is actually pretty good.

Thanks a lot of the insight

Depends on what business you’re in. Some get absolutely nothing (not even a stipend) some get laptop, monitor, etc

Oh gotcha. Thanks for the info
