Employees

Our success relies on our qualified and committed employees. They dedicate their knowledge and skills to developing new locations and living spaces. 

WORKING ENVIRONMENT

We rely on our qualified and ambitious employees, who are entrusted with responsible tasks in an attractive working environment. We support our employees’ work-life balance through flexible, independent working models, including flexitime, part-time positions and mobile working.

CAREER

Following a survey of all managers in 2019, in 2021 Swiss Prime Site invited all employees to complete the employee survey, which will be conducted annually from now on. The aim was to gather opinions around training and development. Across all employees, the topic was awarded an average of 70 out of a possible 100 points. Among managers, the score rose from 74 points in 2019 to 76 points. Performance appraisals – key to an employee’s development – scored 77 points. Managers scored them slightly higher, at 81 points, compared to 80 in 2019.

As part of their support for the next generation of managers and their responsibility as a significant employer, the Company makes positions available for basic vocational training. In 2021, Swiss Prime Site and its group companies employed 30 new apprentices. Since 2017, the Company’s «Real Talent 4 Real Estate» trainee programme has offered graduates with an affinity for real estate an insight into the various group companies – rotating between them every six months. In 2021, Swiss Prime Site and its group companies employed 9 new apprentices.

DIVERSITY

Diversity of people, opinions and experience is very important to us. Equal treatment, equal opportunity and respectful interaction are the foundation of a successful and effective working environment. Our Group-wide corporate values and Code of Conduct act as binding guidelines. These are based, among other things, on the principles of the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We also respect the United Nations’ «Women’s Empowerment Principles».

DEVELOPMENT

We support our employees with a variety of online and in-person training and education programmes, such as Group-wide trainee and leadership courses, management and introductory days, business- and industry-relevant courses and individual further training and development opportunities. In 2021, we invested around 0.8% of our salary costs in the training and development of our 1 667 employees. In addition, we use Group-wide events, job rotations and interdisciplinary collaboration to promote knowledge transfer, networking, team-building and the understanding of specific company processes.

Corporate Social Responsibility

All employees are given one free day a year that they can dedicate to social causes on a voluntary basis. One example of this is volunteering for the organisation YES Young Enterprise Switzerland. This fosters a sense of responsibility towards the local community and promotes team-building.
