We want to help shape the future and to make use of the opportunities presented by a networked world. Wherever a customer comes across Swisscom, they should find us to be trustworthy, committed and curious. Accordingly, motivated, competent and dedicated employees are of the utmost importance. A meaningful, appreciative corporate culture, dialogue-oriented corporate communications and a willingness to embrace diversity underpin our human resources policy. We can therefore count on employees who work together and every single day afresh put their heart and soul into making people enthusiastic about the networked world.
Our commitment to employees is fundamental in three areas:
- Work stress and resilience
- Diversity and equal opportunities
We want to further increase the proportion of female employees, especially in technical professions, and are committed to equal opportunities and diversity in our company. We take decisive action against conscious and unconscious discrimination. In the year under review, we launched a new awareness campaign, tested a partial retirement model for employees over 58 years of age and trained over 900 apprentices, including five recognised or provisionally admitted refugees.
We guide and support our employees through the ongoing development of digitisation. We offer a comprehensive professional development programme for this purpose. The digital learning platform SKILLup was added in the year under review. It provides employees with learning content that meets their needs, regardless of time and location.
The dynamic economic environment demands a high degree of flexibility from our employees. As an employer, we make every effort to ensure that our employees remain healthy and motivated for the long term. To this end, we pay particular attention to the maintenance of a good work-life balance, stress prevention, resilience and also the practice of going to work despite being ill (presenteeism).
