Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

We firmly advocate the diversity of our employees: the different viewpoints, experiences, ideas and skills of each individual are what make Swisscom a successful, innovative and creative company.

Gender equality

Talent man­age­ment and equal pay

We support training courses for women as part of the Advance Women initiative. In addition, we organise women-only in-house courses and events such as Ladies Drive evenings. With its Digital Days for Girls, we promote initiatives that can impact career choices. We are also committed to equal pay for men and women.


A young mindset and an experienced hand

People of all ages work together at Swisscom. Collaboration between the generations enables us to develop products and services that meet our customers’ needs. Employees of all ages take part in basic and further training. A part-time retirement model has been developed specifically for older employees to enable them to gradually reduce their working hours before retirement.


Promoting integration

We foster a performance and development culture focused on personal strengths. At least one percent of jobs are reserved for employees with special needs, enabling them to contribute to the success of Swisscom and promoting their integration in the labour market.

Background and language

Respecting and fostering diversity

Employees from around 100 nations contribute to Swisscom’s success. Based at various locations across all the regions of Switzerland, they communicate with each other and our customers in the national languages of Switzerland, German, French or Italian and in English. We have a presence in each of Switzerland’s linguistic regions. It attaches great importance to ensuring that the various languages are appropriately represented on the governing bodies.
