In an environment that is changing at headlong speed, Swisscom is getting to grips with the working models of the future, making targeted investments in professional training for its employees in order to maintain and improve their employability and the company’s competitiveness in the long term. For example, Swisscom now allows its employees five training days a year.

At the end of 2018, Swisscom had 19,845 full-time equivalent employees, of whom 17,147 or 86% were employed in Switzerland. Swisscom is also training around 960 apprentices in Switzerland.
