Why choose Swiss Post?
Employment conditions and staff benefits
Flexible, mobile and tailored to the needs of employees: that’s the working environment at Swiss Post.
The world is changing more and more rapidly. Demographic change and digitization require a mobile, flexible working environment. Swiss Post is facing up to these challenges and is increasingly offering flexibility in terms of working locations, work hours and the resources needed for the job:
- annual working
- hourspart-time work
- job sharing
- home office
- third place
Thanks to the generous provisions at Swiss Post, staff spend an average of six weeks every year on holiday.
Special working conditions for mothers and fathers
Swiss Post helps its staff strike a balance between their job, family and leisure time. This includes:
- 18 weeks’ paid maternity leave
- 10 days’ paternity leave
- income-dependent contribution towards supplementary childcare costs
Working locations & environment
At Swiss Post, you’ll be working where your creativity and productivity are at their best: in the modern and well equipped Swiss Post buildings, on the train, or from your own home. As part of the Work Smart initiative, Swiss Post advocates working methods that are independent of time and place.
Advanced training and development
The skills of our staff are crucial for Swiss Post’s success. That’s why Swiss Post invests in a diverse and modern range of in-house and off-the-job training courses. These range from certificate courses for specialist and management training, to digital learning formats and informal discussion opportunities. The in-house Job Center also provides support with professional situation assessments and further development.
Swiss Post puts a particular emphasis on promoting young talent and offers numerous apprenticeships, internship places and trainee programmes.
The knowledge and experience of Swiss Post employees is also highly sought after: on the “Postidea” online platform, staff can submit ideas and proposals that are received and pursued further by the Innovation Management team.
Health and social affairs
Health is a precious thing. Swiss Post has already received several awards for its dedication to the health and performance of its employees. If something does happen, the internal Case Management team is there to assist: professionals support staff on their way to reintegration.
Staff can also do something for their own health, such as by taking part in Swiss Post sports events run under the PostActivity umbrella, or through the bike to work initiative. Apprentices also benefit from a non-smoking bonus.
The Swiss Post Social Counselling Service is a neutral specialist unit which provides support free of charge in the event of conflict in the workplace, or to assist with questions and problems in your personal life. Swiss Post’s Job Center is another point of contact, where staff can assess their professional situation and ask questions about their personal advancement.
