Swisscom perceives it as a vital part of an inspirational learning culture to give employees the freedom and self-management opportunities they need to grow and develop. As a pioneer in the field of digitalisation in Switzerland, Swisscom is dedicated to getting to grips with the working and learning models of the future so as to provide employees and managers with an environment in which they can develop and test these new skills. These include cross-functional squads and tribes – mixed teams which bring together all the skills and disciplines needed for execution and take the initiative in dividing their products with agile Employee-to-Employee (E2E) methods. Swisscom has also introduced the social operating system Holacracy in individual divisions which, by applying standardised rules, strengthens employees’ authority and self-organisation in their roles and circles and, at the same time, paves the way for particularly efficient decision-making processes.Goal 8 DECENT WORK AND ECONOMIC GROWTH
Through all these measures, Swisscom makes a valuable contribution to promoting the employability of its staff and improving the competitiveness of the company itself. It also ensures that the individual organisations within the company adapt dynamically to the changes within their fields of activity.
