Generations

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.

Inclusion

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.
