Social responsibility

For the people in the company

Over 8000 people all over the world work for SWISS. Together with its social partners, the airline is actively involved in the issues and needs of its workforce. Two initiatives are of particular importance.

Occupational health management

A healthy, motivated workforce is a key factor in a company's success. SWISS therefore operates a comprehensive occupational health management programme. Specialists from various divisions within the company work together to constantly develop the current processes and offers. Screening, both with regard to individual health and to occupational safety, is just as important as comprehensive support when someone is taken ill or suffers an accident.

The medical services take care of all work- and flight-related matters. The workforce also has an internal psychological advice centre, operational case management and other health offers at its disposal. The occupational health management programme has received the "Friendly Work Space®" label of the foundation "Gesundheitsförderung Schweiz".

Day nursery

A large proportion of the SWISS workforce works outside normal office hours, at night and on weekends. This makes it that much more difficult for working parents to arrange childcare. The "Strampolino" day nursey in Zurich-Kloten is the first one of its kind in Switzerland to offer flexible care times including nights and weekends. SWISS supports the day nursery, and with it the mums and dads in the company.
