Regardless of their gender, nationality, sexual orientation, ethic background, religion, age or beliefs: its employees reflect every possible facet of diversity Swiss Post has made its commitment to acceptance and inclusion a major priority. This is why it has set up internal networks which proactively address the interests of various groups in day-to-day operations: MOSAICO, RAINBOW and Young Voice.

Through its #HumansOfSwissPost series, Swiss Post intends to present its employees to its social media community on Facebook and Instagram. The focus will not be on their professional roles but on their life stories, hobbies and passions.
