Swisscom plays a pioneering role in flexible working throughout Switzerland. Even before the Covid-19 pandemic, working from home, on the road or at different locations was very popular and widespread among Swisscom staff. Employees appreciate the flexibility, the elimination of commuting and a better work-life balance. Swisscom will continue to promote and expand flexible working models in the future. However, meeting regularly in the office and thus maintaining an informal exchange remains important for Swisscom employees.
