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 certified courses for specialist and management training, to digital learning formats and informal discussion opportunities. The in-house Job Center 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.

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 department which provides support free of charge in the event of conflict in the workplace, or to assist with questions and problems in employees’ personal lives. Swiss Post’s Job Center is another point of contact, where staff can assess their professional situation and ask questions about their personal advancement.

Equal pay

At Swiss Post, the principle that applies is work of equivalent value should receive equivalent remuneration. Besides numerous other measures to ensure equal pay, we provide salary information in all job advertisements for roles covered by the Swiss Post CEC. Each ad indicates a range within which the entry-level salary of a new employee is expected to fall.

This sends a clear signal that salaries should not depend on the negotiating skills of candidates and should instead be set fairly based on Swiss Post’s remuneration system. Swiss Post is a signatory to the Charter on equal pay in the public sector, which it also has measured within the company regularly.
