The Leadership Academy offers managers in both personnel and technical leadership roles the opportunity to get to grips with the key skills of management in a changing environment. Offerings tailored to individuals and platforms aimed at further improving management skills in a particular group or a specific context build up the competences of Swisscom’s managers in a systematic and sustained way.
Employee training in general and in the area of corporate responsibility
Swisscom regularly provides its employees with training on relevant topics, including security, compliance and corporate responsibility. For example, Swisscom raises awareness of ecological and social issues among new hires at its Welcome Days. As part of “Hello Future” dialogues, 17 apprentices joined some 250 employee teams (prior year: 150) in learning about Swisscom’s sustainability goals during the year under review. As part of this campaign, the teams were encouraged to develop and implement their own contribution to sustainability.
Corporate volunteering is the term used to describe voluntary work carried out by employees for charitable causes. Swisscom encourages this commitment by allowing its employees to do this during paid working hours and offering them the chance to help out with various volunteering projects in the fields of nature (Nature Days), social responsibility (Social Days) and economy (Economy Days). Swisscom employees can dedicate up to two days of their working time to voluntary work each year. A total of 1,206 volunteer days were clocked up in 2015.
